The Colombian women’s soccer team makes history and goes to the quarterfinals after defeating Jamaica 1-0 on Tuesday in the round of 16 match of the World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, played in Melbourne.
Forward Catalina Usme was the heroine of the match and scored the only goal of the match in the 51st minute.
Colombia is the only South American representative left in the tournament and will now have to face England this Saturday, at 6:30 Miami time.
The first half was marked by a tense and even atmosphere, but the Colombians reacted and used a more aggressive game in the second half.
And although Jamaica played desperate until the end. Their player Tiffany Cameron’s header in the 82nd minute left the stadium breathless, but Colombia managed to hold their ground until the end.
Colombia will have to maintain this strength until their match with England, who beat Nigeria on penalties on Monday.
