Jamaica Women’s World Cup dream ends after Colombia loss

Jamaica conceded their first and last goal of the Women’s World Cup as they lost 1-nil to Colombia in this morning’s Round-of-16 matchup.

The match played out almost as expected with a narrow scoreline and many physical battles as Jamaica maintained their style of play which saw them enter the clash as the only team to not concede a goal throughout the entire tournament.

The tense affair saw more fouls than shots but Catalina Usme’s curled shot in the 51st minute proved to be the decisive strike.

The Jamaicans made history at the tournament after they became the first Caribbean team, men or women, at any age group, to make it out of the group stage at a FIFA World Cup.

This is the first time Colombia have reached the last eight of the Women’s World Cup.

They will face European champions England on Saturday.
