USA vs Colombia live streaming info & lineups - June 22, 2015

June 22, 2015 By Michelle Bonsu
The USWNT will take on a determined Colombia side in the round of 16 on Monday, June 22nd at Edmonton's Commonwealth Stadium. Here are some live TV listings & online streaming options for USA vs. Colombia.

Placed in Group D, the tournament's toughest quartet due to the presence of three top ten sides including Australia and Sweden, no one expected the USWNT to have an easy path to the knockout rounds. However, that has not stopped Jill Ellis's side from being criticised by some observers as they chase what would be a record-setting third World Cup title. Despite winning their first game 3-1 against Australia, the Stars and Stripes were bailed out time and time again by their reliable goalkeeper Hope Solo, who again came up big to earn them a draw against a Sweden led by former manager Pia Sundhage.

Abby Wambach finally got the goal she was needing to down Nigeria in their final game, who were determined to make things as difficult for the two-time World Cup winners. As a result, they were able to top their group and now have been paired with Colombia - a team only making their second appearance at a World Cup. Not surprisingly, there are those who have already determined team USA as the heavy favourites to progress, but for anyone who has been watching this tournament, underestimating the Colombians could prove to be costly.

They might have finished third in their group behind France and England, but Las Cafeteras arguably pulled off one of the biggest surprises during the group stages by defeating title favourites France. The 2014 Copa America Feminina runners' up boast attacking options like Yoreli Rincón and Lady Andrade, the latter of whom has netted twice so far.

And if people thought the women's game did not have its share of combative opponents, think again. Andrade is a familiar face to team USA, and one that many of the players - especially Wambach - will not remember too fondly after she punched the veteran striker in the eye during the Olympics, receiving a ban as a result.

It will be interesting to see what players Ellis opts to field in her starting XI against the Colombians later tonight. For starters, she has rotated Wambach, Sydney Leroux, and Christen Press throughout the tournament, resting some whilst others have started. And star attacker Alex Morgan featured for about an hour against Nigeria as she continues to work her way back to full fitness following an injury and could be able to feature for the full 90 minutes.

Meanwhile, Megan Rapinoe, who scored a brace in their opening win over Australia is fired up and ready to go as they seek to make amends following their heartbreaking final loss to Japan four years ago:

Already, Australia pulled off an upset as they edged out Brazil in a tense round of 16 clash yesterday. Will Colombia also pull off yet another shock of their own? Or will team USA march on towards the quarter-finals as they hope to become the first women's side to win three World Cup titles?
