This is the second time that Colombia qualified for the Round-of-16, but they are hopeful that their journey in the contest will not end there. They have yet to qualify for the quarterfinals in the World Cup, which is their aim coming into this game. However, it looks like this is a different Colombia squad already, as they were impressive during the group stage. During their first game in the groups, they were able to defeat South Korea in a 2-0 win. Moreover, what shocked fans the most is when they also defeated the powerhouse German squad, in a 2-1 win. That win against Germany confirmed their qualification in the next round. Unfortunately, they failed to win their final match in the contest, which could have brought them confidence here. As they aim for the quarterfinals, Colombia are looking to dominate this game.

Colombia will be without Manuela Vanegas, who will be serving a suspension, due to his second booking against Morocco. Due to this, Daniela Caracas could take her spot, along with Carolina Arias, Jorelyn Carabali, and Carolina Arias. Moreover, Linda Caicedo is expected to lead Colombia when it comes to attacks.

Jamaica on the other hand have exceeded expectations this year, as they were able to escape the might of France and Brazil. In fact, France and Brazil were the ones expected to qualify for the next round, but Jamaica proved that they are also a powerhouse squad. They finished at the second, a place above Brazil, which proves how good they are as a team. Jamaica is unbeaten in their group stage, where they had two draws and one win, giving them five points. This is the first time that Jamaica qualified for the Round-of-16 at the World Cup. With that, they are hoping to take advantage of this qualification, and immediately enter the quarterfinals. Expect that Jamaica will not take for granted this opportunity to achieve greater heights in the contest.

Expect that Jamaica will have the same squad for this match, as they aim for consistency in this important match.
