Minutes after Jamaica had a header that went just wide that would’ve tied the match, Colombia had a header that went off the post that would’ve given it a 2-0 lead. Leicy Santos’ header looked like it would’ve gone in off a cross, but it hit the post to keep Colombia’s lead at 1-0.

82′: A near equalizer for Jamaica

Jamaica was so close to getting on the board to even the match in the 82nd minute. Drew Spence got her head on a cross sent to the middle of the box, but the ball went just wide of the left post to help keep Colombia’s lead intact.

65′: Caicedo close to adding to Colombia’s lead

Caicedo had room to operate along the left side of the box, creating space as she entered to fire a shot off. But the shot went high and wide.

 

51′: Colombia goes up 1-0!

The Colombians finally broke through in the 51st minute when Catalina Usme controlled Ana Guzmán’s cross in the box before firing a shot off close to the net to give Colombia a 1-0 lead.
