Match Highlights

Quotes

"I think it is pleasing that everyone in the world can see how much Colombia women’s football has improved. Perhaps if the goalkeeper was not sent off the scoreline would have been different. These players have developed greatly throughout the past four years. The future is set to shine for us," Fabian Taborda, Colombia coach.
