The match against Colombia will start this Monday at 9:00 pm.
The Argentina women’s football team will advance their straight classification to the New Zealand–Australia 2023 World Cup, when it will face Colombia for one of the semi-finals of the Copa America Femenina.
The match will be played at the Alfonso López Stadium in Bucaramanga, Argentina time from 9:00 pm. It will be broadcast live through public TV across the country.
In case of beating Colombian players performing brilliantly, Argentina will get a ticket to the 2023 World Cup and the 2024 Paris Olympics.
German Portanova’s team finished second in Group B with 9 points behind title candidates Brazil and defeated Venezuela 1–0 on the final date.
Colombia performed well, winning Group A with ideal scores through victories against Paraguay (4–2), Bolivia (3–0), Ecuador (2–1) and Chile (4–0).
The difference in the FIFA rankings also shows a slight advantage for those who will be officiating at home. The selected “coffee producer” is ranked 28th, while Argentina is ranked 35th.
Argentina will entrust its football to the scoring noses of Spain’s Atlético de Madrid midfielders Estefania Banini and Yamila Rodriguez.
The national team has already made it to the Intercontinental Playoffs for the 2023 World Cup, although if they finish in the first three places, they will qualify directly.
The situation is different with Paris 2024, which requires them to win and thus bet one of the two places.
The Copa América Colombia 2022, in which 10 countries participate, offers three venues for the New Zealand–Australia 2023 World Cup and one for Repechage and two for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. The third, fourth, and fifth-place finishers will access the Santiago Pan American Games in 2023 (Chile has qualified to host).
