The second semi-final has a novel look to it, with debutants Colombia meeting tournament regulars Nigeria for the first time in women’s football. The Falconets, who will be making their first ever semi-final appearance, have a spring in their step after seeing off reigning champions USA on penalties in the previous round, and see no reason now why they cannot go all the way.

Colombia, for their part, will be hoping their remarkable progress at Germany 2010 gives a substantial lift to the women’s game in their homeland. Runners-up to the hosts in Group A, Ricardo Rozo’s side then proved too tactically astute for Sweden in the last eight. Having defied the odds all the way, Las Cafeteras will not want to miss their chance to make history.
