Team news & squads

Colombia team news

Colombia will face the Football Ferns without a permanent head coach in the dugout following the surprise departure of Nelson Abadia, who led Colombia to the quarter-finals of the tournament, but left the role after nine years.

Angelo Marsiglia, who was an assistant coach during the World Cup, is the interim boss. He has also used the games to introduce youth into the senior side, picking uncapped 16-year-old goalkeeper Luisa Fernanda Agudelo.

However, they will be without the services of their two leading stars. 18-year-old Real Madrid forward Linda Caicedo is out with an ankle injury and won't return until 2024, while Bayern Munich defender Ana María Guzman picked up a knee injury during Colombia’s October international against the United States.

Colombia possible XI: Sepulveda; C. Arias, Carabali, D. Arias, Caracas; Durango, Montoya, Santos, Restrepo; Bahr, Chacon

Goalkeepers:Pérez, Agudelo, Sepúlveda

The Football Ferns fly to South America with a 24-player roster comprised of several experienced players from China’s 2023 Women’s World Cup Roster as well as several up-and-coming members of its Youth National Teams.

Six player of the squad are uncapped, and Klimkova has used the Colombia trip as a chance to introduce teenagers Ruby Nathan (18) and Manaia Elliott (18), while Wellington Phoenix midfielder Macey Fraser, and Sunderland midfielder Katie Kitching have received their debut call-ups.

Forward Hannah Wilkinson will miss the double-header against Colombia as she is serving a two-game suspension after picking up a red card against Chile in September.
