Women's Under-17 finals lineup complete

In the UEFA European Women's Under-17 Championship semi-finals in Nyon on 26 June, first-time qualifiers Switzerland face France and two-time winners Germany play Denmark.

Denmark have completed the lineup for the UEFA European Women's Under-17 Championship finals from 26 to 29 June.

In the fifth annual four-team tournament held among the second qualifying round group winners at the Colovray Stadium opposite UEFA's headquarters in Nyon, Switzerland will compete for the first time on home soil and take on two-time runners-up France in the first semi-final at 11.00CET on 26 June.

That afternoon Germany – who triumphed in the first two events and in the second qualifying round knocked out the team that won the subsequent two, Spain – meet 2008 bronze medallists Denmark after they topped the last group to conclude.

The tournament will conclude on 29 June with the matches for first and third place, and the two finalists in Nyon will also join hosts Azerbaijan in the 2012 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup from 22 September to 13 October.

The draw will be held in July, with China, Japan, North Korea, Gambia, Ghana, Nigeria, Brazil, Colombia, Uruguay and New Zealand having already booked their places. Three CONCACAF nations will join them later this month alongside the European qualifiers.
