After the Colombians took the lead with a very nice goal from Lissie Santos, although there was also something to be said for the positioning of English goalkeeper Mary Earps, the South American women thought they would go into the tea break with a lead.
But that was not taken into consideration by the goalkeeper on the other side of the pitch. Catalina Perez let a ball that rolled towards her narrowly slip out of her hands in the sixth minute of stoppage time, after which England’s Lauren Hemp raced to level the score.
And about that
The Wiegman women did well there. England pressed in the second half. After less than 65 minutes of football, it was striker Alessia Russo who got the ball in front of her right leg through the clutch and did not hesitate for a moment; The ball was chased into the far corner behind Perez against the ropes.
After that, the English were no longer in danger and secured a place in the semi-finals. They will play their semi-final against Australia on Wednesday at 12:00 pm Netherlands time, who beat France after an incredibly exciting penalty shootout. The other semi-final will take place a day earlier at 10:00 a.m. and will be between Spain – who beat the Netherlands – and Sweden.
