England Women vs Colombia Women match tip
This is set to be a thrilling game with Colombia knowing they can get at England, exploiting those same weaknesses that Nigeria exposed in the last 16. However, England showed against the Super Falcons that they do still have the quality to hold on when the game is going against them, as well as a bit of luck in the bank. It might take more than 90 minutes to find a winner here.

*Odds correct as of 13:00 on August 9
Sarina Wiegman’s side are European champions but they haven’t been at their best this tournament, labouring their way to the quarter-finals. In the group stage there were two 1-0 wins over Haiti and Denmark to put England on the brink of qualification for the knockout stages and that spot was secured with an emphatic 6-1 victory over China. Given the performance and the manner of the victory, many believed this would be the catalyst for England dominating at a World Cup that had seen some big names fall. However, in their last 16 tie England were very fortunate not to lose to Nigeria, eventually holding on to a goalless draw before taking it on penalties. An undeserving victory, England know something has to change if they are to win the World Cup.
Looking to cause another upset at this World Cup are Colombia, who are in the quarter-finals for the first ever time. Placed in a group alongside Germany, South Korea and Morocco, Colombia will have been outsiders to even make it to the last 16 given the stature of the former two. However, Colombia beat both of them in the group stage, including a dramatic 2-1 win over Germany, to all but secure their spot in the last 16. A defeat to Morocco in the final game couldn’t drop Colombia from top spot, and they ended Jamaica’s hopes last time out with a 1-0 victory. They can cause a lot of problems.

Keira Walsh had to come off with another injury against Nigeria, having only just returned from a knee problem which many had feared would rule her out for the remainder of the tournament. However, there are no worries that Walsh will not be available for the weekend. Lauren James, on the other hand, will miss out through suspension after her red card for a stamp on Michelle Alozie. An automatic one-game ban, James is still waiting to find out whether she will have to sit on the sidelines for longer.

Colombia welcome defender Manuela Vanegas back into the squad after she missed the 1-0 win over Jamaica through suspension for yellow card accumulation. Ana Maria Guzman started in her stead and will be hoping her performance against Jamaica was enough to retain her spot.
