The USWNT Must Evolve Or Die

This time last year, Brazil were capping off a fairly up-and-down group stage of the 2014 World Cup on home soil. The tournament favorites, whose fans had been planning the impending victory celebration practically since the moment FIFA announced them as hosts, had at times impressed, and at others looked curiously… » 6/23/15 4:24pm 6/23/15 4:24pm

Wambach Blows PK After Colombian Keeper Sent Off; U.S. Score Anyway

Abby Wambach botched a penalty kick awarded after Colombian keeper Catalina Pérez earned a red card for bringing Alex Morgan down on the inside edge of the box, and a lackluster performance by the U.S. seemed to have its lacklustiest moment until a lucky break when Morgan snuck one past replacement keeper Stefany… » 6/22/15 9:18pm 6/22/15 9:18pm

Colombia's Star Player Is Ramping Up The Shit Talk Ahead Of USWNT Game

Colombia aren’t afraid of anybody. They weren’t afraid of France (who they beat in the group stage), they weren’t afraid of England (who they lost to while still looking pretty damn good), and after making it to the Round of 16 and drawing one of the tournament’s favorites, they aren’t afraid of the USWNT, either. » 6/20/15 12:14pm 6/20/15 12:14pm

Neymar Given Two-Match Suspension For Shenanigans After Colombia Loss

Colombia beat Brazil 1-0 last night in the Copa América, Los Cafeteros’ first win over the South American giants since 1991. But instead of the impressiveness of the feat (and Brazil’s continued struggles) taking center stage, the kerfuffle that broke out after the final whistle has overshadowed the game. » 6/18/15 4:11pm 6/18/15 4:11pm

English Keeper Flattens Colombian, Robbing Us Of A Brilliant Team Goal

We have a soft spot in our hearts for scrappy little Colombia, who entered this group as long shots but have impressed with the overflowing technical ability of their players. So you can understand our frustration as Las Cafeteras were all set to cap off the team goal of the tournament before the English keeper went… » 6/17/15 5:52pm 6/17/15 5:52pm

Holy Shit, Colombia Beat France!

The first upset of the Women’s World Cup happened this afternoon, and it was a very big one. Locked into a tight match with France all day, when the final whistle blew Colombia were on top 2-0. Ranked 28th in the world by FIFA, Colombia became the lowest ranked team to ever knockoff a top-10 team (France was 3rd) in… » 6/13/15 5:12pm 6/13/15 5:12pm

Carlos Bacca Scores Colombian Equalizer, Sparks Heavy Metal Meltdown

We highlighted Javier "El Cantante del Gol" Fernández's goal calls throughout the World Cup, and we're happy to bring you his especially-emphatic call of Carlos Bacca's equalizer against the United States today at Craven Cottage. (Sure looks like Colombia was offside here, though?) » 11/14/14 4:21pm 11/14/14 4:21pm

It's Time To Embrace The Fun-Loving Colombians, America

On Tuesday, the U.S. national team was knocked out of the World Cup in semi-heartbreaking fashion. Semi-heartbreaking, because while the U.S. played like hopeless crap for about 110 minutes of the match, they had a glorious chance to win it at the end of regular time. It would have been glorious, a Fourth of July… » 7/04/14 10:29am 7/04/14 10:29am

No One Wants To Play Colombia, Because James Rodríguez Is Unstoppable

The World Cup has always been a tournament of superstars. What separates the fates of these hodge-podge collections of countrymen wrangled together a couple dozen times per year to form some semblance of chemistry and playing coherence ahead of the Big Shebang is very often one particular player's abilities saying… » 6/28/14 7:33pm 6/28/14 7:33pm
