Draw

Roberto Ayala announces the position of Argentina during the draw.

The draw was held on 24 August 2018, 18:30 ART (UTC−3), at the Casa de Gobierno de la Ciudad de Buenos Aires in Buenos Aires.[26] In both the boys' and girls' tournament, the ten teams were drawn into two groups of five teams. The hosts Argentina were assigned to position A1 in the boys' tournament. As teams from the same confederation could not be drawn into the same group, the two teams each from AFC (Asia), CONCACAF (North America), CONMEBOL (South America), and UEFA (Europe) were drawn into different groups, and as a result the two remaining teams, one each from CAF (Africa) and OFC (Oceania), were also drawn into different groups.[27]

Match officials

A total of 24 officials (18 men and 6 women) were appointed by FIFA for the two tournaments.[28][29]

Squads

Each team had to name a preliminary squad of 20 players (minimum three must be goalkeepers). From the preliminary squad, the team had to name a final squad of 10 players (minimum two must be goalkeepers) by the FIFA deadline.[1]

Format

The top two teams of each group advance to the semi-finals. The rankings of teams in each group are determined as follows (regulations Article 15.5):[1]

  1. points obtained in all group matches;
  2. goal difference in all group matches;
  3. 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 are determined as followed:

  1. points obtained in the group matches between the teams concerned;
  2. goal difference in the group matches between the teams concerned;
  3. number of goals scored in the group matches between the teams concerned;
  4. fair play points in all group matches:
    • first yellow card: minus 1 point;
    • indirect red card (second yellow card): minus 3 points;
    • direct red card: minus 4 points;
    • yellow card and direct red card: minus 5 points;
  5. drawing of lots by the FIFA Organising Committee.

In the semi-finals, bronze medal match and goal medal match, if a match is level at the end of normal playing time, extra time will be played (two periods of five minutes each) and followed, if necessary, by a penalty shoot-out to determine the winner.
