    I'm monitoring the Women's Gold Cup too.

    Colombia are one of the more improved sides of the last couple of years.

    The USA are vulnerable. It will be an interesting quarterfinal.

    Just like I have a Top 150 ranking for men's international teams I'll from now on add a ranking for the Top 50 Women's international teams. It takes results of the last 3 years into account.

    The Gold Cup final will be played on 10 March. Expect my ranking to drop just after the final.

    I'll post both my rankings on the Colombian subforum as well.

    I'm at the game... this is beyond embarrassing

    Moving at snail speed, I don't understand the goal kicks, and these petty fights they're starting

    Terrible game plan. USA knew to pressure Colombia's defenders and they got a lot out of it. Against a lesser opponent, in a group game and with all your starters you could try to play the possession game, but in an elimination game against a team that has their number, my priority as a coach would have been to keep the ball out of our defensive area as much as possible. USA has vulnerabilities in their defense and Colombia was able to create some danger in their area, but with the speed and skill of their attack, the mistakes the Superpoderosas made trying to get out of their own area were too costly.

    Now, the fights and the physicality I can understand, specially against a group that uses their strength to bully opponents; but yeah, there's a difference between asserting your ground and turning the contest into a wrestling match.

    Bear in mind that the two best third placed teams advance as well. Colombia shouldn't have any problems to dispatch a weak New Zealand. They will need to play France and Canada close or ideally grab some points in order to squeeze through.

    Our U20 side is doing excellent. We are already hosting the u20 world cup this year so I think the lack of pressure to qualify is why they're adapting so well.
