England, Mexico among teams in Moncton group for FIFA U20
Nigeria and Republic of Korea also draw spots in Group C for U20 Women's World Cup soccer
England and Mexico will be among the teams that will play in Moncton this summer in the FIFA Under 20 Women's World Cup.
Nigeria and the Republic of Korea were also selected to play in Moncton as the other teams in Group C through a draw that took place Saturday in Montreal.
Moncton will also see the United States play China and Ghana take on Finland in games involved teams from other groups.
Dubé says Moncton plans to offer both sporting and cultural events to complement the games played in the city.
"There's a lot of ethnic and cultural possibilities," he said. "We plan on putting on fan zones downtown, engaging MAGMA (Moncton Multicultural Association) for example … trying to work this into not only a sporting even, but a cultural activity as well — cultural celebration of sorts."
The event takes place from August 6-20.
