The Germany women's national under-20 football team represents the female under-20s of Germany in the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup, and is controlled by the German Football Association.

History[edit]

The German U-20 team and Nordic Cup[edit]

The German U-20 team participated in the Nordic Cup since the early '90s. Winning the tournament in 1995.[1] Nordic Cup was a U-20 competition from 1990 to 1997.

Change of U-18 to U-19[edit]

The first three tournaments of the UEFA Women's Under-19 Championship were in the U-18 category. In 2001, the German Football Association decided to change the age limit from the U-18 team to U-19. The move was in preparation for 2002 UEFA Women's Under-19 Championship (competition that served as a qualifying tournament for the 2002 FIFA U-19 Women's World Championship).

Competing as a U-20 team[edit]

2005 and 2006[edit]

As the German Football Association did in 2001 prior to the introduction of the U-19 tournament, they raised the age of the squad from U-19 to U-20 in 2005. The move was, again, in response to FIFA's altering of the competition from U-19 to U-20.
