The 2012 FIFA U-17 Women's World Cup was the third edition of the women's football tournament, and was held in Azerbaijan from 22 September to 13 October,[1] following a decision by the Executive Committee on 19 March 2010.[2] Defending champions South Korea failed to qualify for the tournament.

France won the title after defeating Korea DPR 1–1 (7–6 after pen.).[3]

Mascot[edit]

The official mascot of this World Cup was The Top Top Girl (Top Top Qız), which means ball in Azerbaijani, a young girl with the national flag painted on her cheeks. Its body is blue, red, green and white kit like the host's national team and her brown hair in a ponytail designed to resemble what is known as a buta, a curving decorative motif widely used in Azerbaijani art.[4][5]

Final draw[edit]

The final draw was held on 6 July 2012 in Baku.[11]

Squads[edit]

Each team submitted a squad of 21 players, including three goalkeepers.[12] The squads were announced on 14 September 2012.[13]

Group stage[edit]

The ranking of each team in each group will be determined as follows:[14]

  1. greatest number of points obtained in all group matches
  2. goal difference in all group matches
  3. greatest number of goals scored in all group matches

If two or more teams are equal on the basis of the above three criteria, their rankings will be determined as follows:

  1. greatest number of points obtained in the group matches between the teams concerned
  2. goal difference resulting from the group matches between the teams concerned
  3. greatest number of goals scored in all group matches between the teams concerned
  4. drawing of lots by the FIFA Organising Committee

The two teams finishing first and second in each group qualify for the quarter-finals.

All times are Azerbaijan Summer Time (UTC+5).
