The lineup for the 2010 UEFA European Women's Under-19 Championship second qualifying round has been finalised, with last term's runners-up Sweden one of seven sides to book their place in December's draw in Nyon.
Sweden won Group 2 after a 1-0 victory over the Czech Republic that came courtesy of Olivia Schough's 47th-minute goal. Norway progressed as Group 6 winners following a 1-1 draw against hosts and reigning champions England. Toni Duggan gave England the lead in the 21st minute but Julie Adserø's second-half equaliser was enough to ensure that the Scandinavians top the section. Boznia-Herzegovina will also be in the draw following a 3-0 win against Moldova in Group 3. The seven-goal top scorer in the first qualifying round, Lidija Kulis, was again on the mark to add to Milena Nikolic's double.
Switzerland and Iceland comfortably progressed from Group 11 after beating Portugal and Romania 4-1 and 5-0 respectively. The day's most resounding victors were Turkey, however, who finish second in Group 7 despite their 13-0 win against Georgia. Eylül Elğalp scored five and Fatma Kara three to take Turkey to four points. Olga Kaziyeva hit a hat-trick of her own in Azerbaijan's 8-0 triumph over Cyprus which was enough for second place in Group 10 behind Spain, who ended the phase as one of six countries with an unblemished record.
The top two teams in each of the eleven first qualifying round sections are through along with Serbia, who qualify as the third-placed side with the best record against the leading pair in their pool. Germany have a bye to the second qualifying round draw, which will be made in Nyon on 16 December at 09.30CET. After the games in the spring, seven teams will join hosts FYR Macedonia in the finals next May and June.
