Colombia Women's National Soccer Team News


July 11, 2015 - Maria Usme scores in win over Mexico
Pan Am Games: "The Colombians eked out a 1-0 victory on a late score from Maria Usme, who subbed into the match at the 61-minute mark. Her goal, off a failed Mexican clearing attempt in the crease, came just four minutes later." - Hamilton News

June 12, 2015 - Lady Andrade & Catalina Usme score in win over France

"Colombia produced the first true shocking result of the 2015 Women’s World Cup with a 2-0 win over France in New Brunswick, but it didn’t come without controversy. Lady Andrade struck for Colombia in the 19th minute, and the 28th-ranked team had an early lead over the world’s 3rd-ranked French side. In the 66th minute, the controversy came to a head with Eugenie Le Sommer seemingly through on goal. Under pressure, Colombian midfielder Daniela Montoya used her arm to swat the ball out of the air and clear of the net, and while a clear penalty and red card should have been called, the referee called nothing. As France poured on the pressure, racking up 22 shots – but only six on goal – the Colombians maintained composed at the back. With France pushed well forward and time running out, Colombia hit on the break and substitute Catalina Usme put the game away in stoppage time." - NBC Sports
