Tuesday’s first game of the day sees two of the surprise packages of the tournament meet in Melbourne.
Colombia is into the knockout phase for just the second time in its history, while Jamaica is making its debut at this stage.
Behind the brilliance of 18-year-old sensation Linda Caicedo, Colombia became just the second South American team to win a group in Women’s World Cup history after Brazil.
It won its opening two group games and although it lost its last match to Morocco, Colombia has impressed with its attacking verve and the atmosphere its fans have brought.
Jamaica has also been one of the talking points of the tournament, knocking out Brazil — in the process, bringing an end to Marta’s legendary career — as it reached the knockout stages for the first time in its history.
The Reggae Girlz didn’t concede a goal in the group stage and will be relying on its defensive solidity if it has any hopes of advancing to the quarterfinals.
The winner of the game will face England in the last eight on Saturday.
