Women’s World Cup 2023 Preview

England can count their blessings that they are in the quarterfinals of the Women’s World Cup, as they looked to be heading out in the previous round. It was the first time that the Lionesses have faced a real challenge, and they only just managed to pass that test. Throughout their round of 16 match against Nigeria, England found themselves on the back foot with Nigeria hitting the woodwork three times in 120 minutes.

Despite a red card to Lauren James, England regrouped and secured their spot in the quarterfinals with success from the penalty spot. This will be England’s sixth appearance in the quarterfinals, and they have reached the semifinals in the last two tournaments. However, they have failed to win their last three knockout stage matches.

Colombia has gained many fans this summer with their impressive performances at the competition. They continued their progress in the round of 16 with a 1-0 victory over Jamaica. This is the first time they have reached the quarterfinals and they will be aiming to become the second South American nation to reach the final four, following in the footsteps of Brazil in 1999 and 2007.

Interestingly, 75% of Colombia’s wins at the Women’s World Cup have come in this edition of the tournament. Before the 2023 competition, they had only won once in seven matches.

England vs Colombia Head to Head

This weekend’s clash will be the second meeting between England and Colombia on the international stage. The previous encounter took place at the 2015 World Cup, with England securing a 2-1 victory in the group stage.

England vs Colombia Prediction

Lauren James will be a significant absence for England on Saturday, as her impact was felt in the previous round against Nigeria.
