The last time these two teams met, Colombia was eliminated by the U.S. in the Round of 16 at the 2015 Women’s World Cup. Las Cafeteras are ranked second in South America and 25th in the world.
The U.S. is coming off an undefeated run during the qualifiers for the 2016 Olympic Games. This includes victories over continental rivals Mexico and Canada in the group stage and final respectively.
