(Live TV!!) England vs Colombia live match 12 August 2023
The Colombians are struggling to keep hold of it at the moment. William AllenPosted at: 06:44EDT12/08/2023 Just before that Russo chance, Colombia brought on Ana María Guzmán for Carolina Arias. William AllenPosted at: 06:43EDT12/08/2023 It's all being played in the Colombia half right now. Bright lifts a high ball into Bronze's run forward on the right, where the full-back nods it across the box towards Russo.
William AllenPosted at: 07:13EDT12/08/2023 England knock it about in the Colombia half for a good minute or so, before Greenwood stands up a ball to Russo at the back of the Colombia box. Russo nods it inside to Bronze, who tries to help it further on into the danger area, but can't. Colombia clear. William AllenPosted at: 07:12EDT12/08/2023 Caicedo is such a danger.
She somehow manages to gather a Guzmán cross from the right, before twisting and turning her way into a yard of shooting space just to the right of the penalty spot. Give the England defence its due, though: a wall of white shirts is quickly there to block Caicedo's attempt.

William AllenPosted at: 07:07EDT12/08/2023 Having been a little under the cosh for a couple of minutes, Colombia are enjoying a good little spell here. Santos tries to wriggle into shooting space on the edge of the England box, but can't find a yard.
A moment later, Santos scampers down the left before clipping in a ball towards Ramírez, but again the Lionesses deal with it. William AllenPosted at: 06:52EDT12/08/2023 England work it left to Daly to cross from the left. She lifts it into the box towards Hemp, but Colombia clear. William AllenPosted at: 06:50EDT12/08/2023 England pop it about inside the Colombian half, once more to loud boos - but when a pass is misplaced and the South Americans win it back, there are huge cheers.
William AllenPosted at: 06:28EDT12/08/2023 Out come the teams! The teams are at Stadium Australia, which looks to have a lot of Colombians inside it. Time for the national anthems. England first. William AllenPosted at: 06:26EDT12/08/2023 American referee Ekaterina Koroleva will be in charge of today's clash in Sydney. Koroleva is at her second Women's World Cup, albeit it's her first as a match referee. We've put together a profile of the 36-year-old.
