The Colombian women’s soccer team continues its preparation for the 2023 World Cup to be played in Australia and New Zealand at a good pace. In a preparatory game, they beat Costa Rica 2-0 in a game played at the Pascual Guerrero stadium in Cali.

The winning goals were from Catalina Usme, minute 37, and Linda Caicedo, who made it 2-0 after 71 minutes of the game that was accompanied by more than 25,000 people.

This is the second victory achieved by those led by Nelson Abadía, who last Saturday defeated this same team 1-0, at the Deportivo Cali stadium, with a target from Usme.
