UEFAEdit

Due to scheduling issues, UEFA did not hold a separate qualifying competition; UEFA instead announced that the top two UEFA teams in 2003 FIFA Women's World Cup were to qualify for the Olympics. As a result, the World Cup winners   Germany and the runners-up   Sweden qualified for the Olympics[1] (together with the hosts   Greece).
