It took 12 years for a Colombian women’s team in the sub-20 category to return to a World Cup, after qualifying as South American runner-up and reaching the gold medal at the Bolivian Games in Valledupar.
The first rival, at the Alejandro Morera Soto stadium in Alajuela, is Germany, three-time world champion, a cast that the Colombians look at with respect, although at the same time they reflect optimism and conviction before facing it. “
We know that it is a great team and has excellent players. However, just as they are good, so are we, for a reason we made it to the World Cup. Colombia is at its best and while it won’t be easy to counteract them, it won’t be impossible either,” striker Gisela Robledo, who plays for Tenerife in Spain, said at a press conference.
