USA vs. Colombia
2016 Olympics – Group G
Amazônia Arena; Manaus, Brazil

Aug. 9, 2016

(Via U.S. Soccer) – After two wins and six points in its first two Group G matches at the 2016 Olympics, the U.S. Women’s National Team traveled to Manaus needing a win or a tie in its group finale against Colombia at Amazonia Arena (6 p.m. local / 6 p.m. ET on NBCSN, NBC Universo and to be assured of claiming the top spot in the group.

The Amazonia Arena was built for the 2014 FIFA World Cup and featured one match for the U.S. Men, a 2-2 draw with Portugal.

WATCH THE U.S. WNT ON NBCSN: TheGroup G matches for the U.S. Women’s National Team at the 2016 Olympics will be available across a wide array of viewing options, airing on NBC Sports Network (NBCSN), NBC Universo and the Soccer Specialty Channel as well as on and the NBC Sports app. All U.S. WNT matches on NBCSN are being called by NBC Sports Group’s lead Premier League announcer Arlo White (play-by-play) and two-time U.S. women’s soccer Olympic gold medalist Kate Markgraf (analyst). They will be joined by reporter Sebastian Salazar of CSN Mid Atlantic. The Soccer Specialty Channel – which will focus solely on men’s and women’s soccer — will be on nearly every day of the Summer Games, while NBC Universo will provide live coverage in Spanish. Viewers should contact their TV provider for further information on availability and location of the Soccer Specialty Channel.

12 TO 8: With the final round of group matches taking place at two venues on Aug. 9, nothing has been finalized as far as quarterfinal match-ups. Brazil, Canada and the USA, who all won their first two matches, have clinched quarterfinal berths, but with the top two finishers in each group as well as the top two third-place teams advancing, there is still much at stake for almost every team in the tournament.

Advancement Scenarios:
Group E

Brazil is solidly in control of Group E after having thrashed China PR (3-0) and Sweden (5-1) with just a match against South Africa remaining (Brazil will play after the USA in Manaus). Brazil will face the third-place team from Group F or G, depending on who emerges from the first round matches. The real battle in this group is for second place with both China and Sweden on three points, but China has the edge on goal difference at -1 to Sweden’s -3. China just needs a tie to finish second while Sweden needs a win as the two countries face each other in their final group match. A point for either could see them both go through, but it will all come down to goal difference after the completion of the matches to determine which third-place teams advance.

Group F
This group is perhaps the most interesting, made so by Australia’s 2-2 tie with Germany on Aug. 6. Canada and Germany meet for the group title in Brasilia, with Canada just needing a tie and Germany (which is on four points) needing a win to top the group. However, the winner of this group could likely face France while the second place finisher would likely face China PR or Sweden. Australia, with one point, is still very much alive as it faces Zimbabwe which has scored two goals and allowed nine in two matches so far. Still, even if the Germans falter against Canada, Australia has to make up seven goals on Germany to finish ahead of them if both end on four points.

Group G
With a win or a tie vs. Colombia, the USA can clinch the top spot in the group and a quarterfinal match-up against the third place team from Group E or F. If two third-place teams come from Group E and F, the USA would play the third-place team from Group E. If a third-place team comes from the USA’s Group G, the USA would meet the other third-place finisher, whether it be from Group E or F. France will be looking to clinch second place in Group G, and a meeting with the Group F winner, with a tie or win vs. New Zealand. The Football Ferns, who will be playing without captain Abby Erceg who received a red card at the end of the match against Colombia, likely need at least a point to have a chance to advance while Colombia with zero points and a -5 goal difference will most like finish its tournament in Manaus.

COL 5 5 0 0 18 0

USA STAY UNBEATEN IN 2016: The USA is 16-0-1 in 2016, earning 14 shutouts while allowing just four goals, three of which came against Japan on June 2. The USA started the year with a 5-0 win against Ireland and then won two tournaments early on – taking the title at the CONCACAF Olympic Qualifying Tournament in February and the SheBelieves Cup in March. The USA played two friendly matches against Olympic Group G opponent Colombia in April,winning 7-0 and 3-0 with seven different players scoring the 10 goals; and two entertaining matches against Japan in June, a wild 3-3 draw on June 2 in Commerce City, Colo., that saw the USA go down 2-0 after 22 minutes, only to roar back to take a 3-2 lead heading into stoppage time. The referee added four minutes and Japan equalized in the third minute of stoppage time. The USA won the rematch 2-0 in Clevelandduring a game that was stopped in the 76th minute due to inclement weather. In July, the USA faced fellow Olympic participant South Africa on July 9 in the first meeting between the teams, winning just 1-0 as the USA logged a dominating if somewhat uneven performance. The USA dominated Costa Rica in its final Olympic send-off match on July 22, winning 4-0 , and earned the full six points from its first two matches of the 2016 Olympics Games with a 2-0 win against New Zealand and a narrow 1-0 win vs. France.

2016 OLYMPIC TEAM SENDS 11 DEBUTANTS: U.S. head coach Jill Ellis named her 18-player Olympic Team on July 12 and seven players make a return to the Olympics after helping the USA to the gold medal in 2012 in London. Fourteen players who were members of the USA’s 2015 Women’s World Cup championship team are part of the squad. Midfielders Carli Lloyd and Tobin Heath and goalkeeper Hope Solo are playing in their third Olympic Games. Solo was also an alternate in 2004 and is attending her fourth Games. Midfielder Megan Rapinoe, forward Alex Morgan and defenders Kelley O’Hara and Becky Sauerbrunn are playing in their second Olympic Games. The remaining 11 players made are competing in their first Olympics, although forward Christen Press and defender Meghan Klingenberg were alternates on the 2012 team and defender Ali Krieger was an alternate in 2008. Having just turned 18 on April 29, forward Mallory Pugh becomes the USA’s second youngest women’s soccer Olympian. Ellis also named four alternate replacement players that traveled to Brazil in midfielder Heather O’Reilly, who is a three-time gold medalist (2004, 2008 and 2012), goalkeeper Ashlyn Harris, defender Emily Sonnett and midfielder Samantha Mewis. O’Reilly and Harris were part of the USA’s World Cup championship team last summer.

SOLO EARNS 200TH CAP: U.S. WNT goalkeeper Hope Solo earned her 200th cap in last Saturday’s match against France, picking up her 153rd win and 102nd career shutout. She is the 11th U.S. player to hit the 200 mark and the first goalkeeper in international soccer history to do so. Earlier this summer, she became the first goalkeeper in history to earn 100 shutouts when she blanked South Africa on July 9. Solo has earned shutouts vs. 29 different countries.

GRAND OLYMPIC HISTORY: The U.S. Women’s National Team is by far the most successful in Olympic women’s soccer history, having won four gold medals and one silver medal in the five competitions that have been held so far. The USA is 24-2-3 all-time in the Olympics, having lost only in the gold medal game in 2000 and the opening match of the 2008 tournament, both to Norway. In 2016 in Brazil, the USA celebrates the 20th anniversary of its first gold medal which came in the first Olympic Games in which women’s soccer was contested. The Olympic Women’s Soccer Tournament was staged as an eight-team competition in 1996 and 2000 before moving – oddly to a 10-team tournament in 2004 – and then have been 12 teams for the past two Olympic Games.


  • With her goals in the first two games of the 2016 Olympics Games, Carli Lloyd is now the only American to score multiple goals in three in separate Olympics.
  • Lloyd scored her 90th international tally when she netted the game-winning goal against France on Aug. 6 in Belo Horizonte. It was Lloyd’s 11th goal of the year and her eight Olympic goal. She is two goals away from breaking Abby Wambach’s U.S. record of 10 Olympics goals.
  • Against South Africa on July 9, Carli Lloyd made her return to action – playing the entire second half — after missing the two previous games against Japan in June. Lloyd, the reigning FIFA Women’s World Player of the Year and U.S. Soccer Player of the Year, has fully recovered from an MLC strain suffered while playing for the Houston Dash on April 23. The June games were the first Lloyd had missed since the very beginning of 2014 when she did not play in the first match of the year, a 1-0 victory vs. Canada in Frisco, Texas on Jan. 31, due to a red card received in the final match of the previous year. Lloyd is now just 10 goals away from becoming the sixth player in U.S. history to score 100 or more.
  • Lloyd has scored 27 goals in her last 28 matches starting with the Round of 16 game at the WWC.
  • Morgan scored her team-leading 12th goal of 2016, 68th overall and fifth Olympic goal in the WNT’s 2-0 victory against New Zealand in the Olympic opener. The only other time Morgan scored double-digit goals for the USA in a calendar year was in 2012 (28 goals), which also happened to be an Olympic year. The goal ties her with Mia Hamm and Tiffany Milbrett for third behind Lloyd (8) and Wambach (10) on the USA’s Olympic goals-scored list.
  • Morgan’s two goals on June 2 marked her 18th career multi-goal game.
  • OnJan. 23, Morgan became the 34th female player in U.S. history to play 100 times for her country. Morgan debuted for the USA on Oct. 2, 2010, vs. China. She’s averaged 0.59 goals per game in her international career.
  • Morgan’s goal 12 seconds into the match against Costa Rica on Feb. 10 was the earliest in U.S. WNT history. She also scored the latest goal in U.S. history, tallying after 122 and 22 seconds against Canada in the semifinal of the 2012 Olympics. It was also the quickest in CONCACAF qualifying history, besting Abby Wambach (35 seconds vs. Dominican Republic on Jan. 20, 2012).
  • Morgan scored three goals in the Olympic Qualifying semifinal match against Trinidad & Tobago on Feb. 19. It was her third career hat trick and the first since Nov. 28, 2012 against Ireland.
  • With two assists so far in these 2016 Olympic Games, both coming on Lloyd’s goals, Tobin Heath has upped her assist total to six in 2016 and 27 for her career with the WNT.
  • Heath scored her third goal of 2016, and 15th of her career, on a blistering volley against Colombia on April 6. Heath’s two goals in the February Olympic Qualifying tournament were her first since the Women’s World Cup Final and were remarkably similar, both coming off spinning left-footed blasts after making runs into the box from the right side and both coming off excellent and similar passes from Mallory Pugh who had made dynamic runs down the left side.
  • The match against New Zealand on Aug. 3 marked the first Olympic starts for Mallory Pugh, Morgan Brian, Becky Sauerbrunn, Julie Johnston and Meghan Klingenberg, while the match against France on Aug. 6 marked the first Olympic starts for Crystal Dunn and Whitney Engen. It was Engen’s debut at the Olympic Games and the first start in a senior level world championship for Dunn, Engen, Pugh and Long.
  • Coming in as second half subs on Aug. 3, Christen Press, Lindsey Horan and Dunn made their Olympic debuts against New Zealand. Ali Krieger came in as a sub on Aug. 6, thus making her Olympic debut as well. 10 of the 11 2016 Olympic debutants on the U.S. roster have seen time on the field. Only goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher is yet to make her Olympic debut.
  • Pugh, who has scored three goals in 2016 and leads the team with seven assists, became the youngest American female player to start in an Olympic match when she took the field against New Zealand on Aug. 3.
  • Pugh achieved a rare feat of helping two different teams qualify for a world championship in the same cycle. Last December, she captained the U.S. Under-20 Women’s National Team to a 2016 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup berth and the CONCACAF title at the qualifying tournament in Honduras. Pugh was called up by Jill Ellis for the USA’s January training camp this year, making her one of the youngest field players called into the full U.S. WNT in the past 15 years. Pugh was a starter at the age of 16 in the 2014 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup in Canada and will compete in the U-20 Women’s World Cup in Papua New Guinea at the end of this year.
  • Pugh scored in her senior team debut (the 19th U.S. WNT player to score in her first cap) on Jan. 23 vs. Ireland at 17 years, 8 months and 25 days old, becoming the youngest player to debut for the U.S. in the last 11 years.
  • Pugh earned her second cap with the WNT on Feb. 10, coming on for Crystal Dunn in the 68th minute against Costa Rica in her first Olympic qualifying match and thus became the youngest female player in WNT history to play in an Olympic Qualifying match at 17 years, 9 months and 12 days old.
  • Pugh earned her first start against Puerto Rico on Feb. 15 and picked up her first WNT assist while also creating a PR own goal. She has played in 15 of the USA’s 17 games this year and started 11 of the last 14 matches.
  • Pugh, who turned 18 on April 29, is fifth all-time for most U.S. caps before the age of 18 (11). She is third for most goals before the age of 18 (2), fourth in most starts before the age of 18 (7) and first for most assists before the age of 18 (5).
  • With her game-winning goal against Costa Rica on July 22, Crystal Dunn has 10 goals in 2016 which is good for second most on the team this year. Dunn has scored 14 goals in the last 22 games.
  • Before the match against Puerto Rico on Feb. 15 in the Olympic Qualifying tournament, Dunn had scored five goals for the U.S. WNT. She doubled that total vs. Puerto Rico, notching five goals to tie a U.S. record for most goals scored in a match. She became the seventh U.S. player to achieve that feat. The other six were: Brandi Chastain (1991), Michelle Akers (1991), Tiffeny Milbrett (2002), Abby Wambach (2004), Amy Rodriguez (2012) and Sydney Leroux (2012). It was Dunn’s first multi-goal game for the WNT.
  • After having ACL surgery in mid-December of last year, midfielder Megan Rapinoe made a steady recovery, was named to her first roster since the injury for the USA’s training in Chicago and participated fully in training for the first time. Her progress was good enough for Jill Ellis to name her to the 2016 Olympic Team.
  • Hope Solo has earned wins in 14 of the USA’s 17 games so far, with one tie, while Alyssa Naeher has the other two victories.
  • Solo earned her 200th against France becoming the first goalkeeper in international soccer history to do so.
  • After earning her first two caps at the 2013 Algarve Cup, now 22-year-old Lindsey Horan got her first three starts at the end of last year, switching positions to holding midfielder where she excelled in the Olympic Qualifying tournament and the SheBelieves Cup. Horan, who was the first American female player to skip college and head overseas to play professionally, left for Europe in July of 2012 after she graduated from high school and spent more than three years in France with Paris Saint-Germain. She scored her first WNT goal against T&T at the end of last year and scored her second to break open a tight match against Canada in the championship of Olympic Qualifying. Her third was one to remember, coming off the bench in her hometown of Denver on June 2 to head home an apparent game-winner in the 89th minute, but Japan equalized in the third minute of stoppage time.
  • Horan’s goal against Japan on June 2 was her second of 2016 and third of her career.
  • Midfielder Allie Long scored the first two goals of her international career on April 6 against Colombia. Long scored twice on headers. Her most recent start before that match was also at Pratt & Whitney Stadium, on June 19, 2014, in a 2-2 draw with France. She came off the bench on April 10 vs. Colombia to earn her sixth cap and started against Japan onJune 2 and June 5 to earn her seventh and eighth. Her start against South Africa on July 9 gave her nine caps before she was named to the 2016 Olympic Team, the only field player on the team in single digits, but she hit 10 career caps on July 22 vs. Costa Rica. After starts against New Zealand and France, she now has 12 caps.
  • Christen Press has scored 34 international goals in 72 caps, moving her past Lindsay Tarpley into 16th place on the U.S. WNT all-time goals list. She is averaging just under a goal for every two games she plays (0.47 goals per game) for the WNT.
  • Julie Johnston’s two goals against Colombia on April 10 upped her career total to eight, all coming off set plays. It was her first multi-goal game for the USA.
  • Against Canada on Feb. 21 in the championship game of the Olympic Qualifying tournament, U.S. co-captain Becky Sauerbrunn became the 35th U.S. female player to reach 100 caps. She also picked up the third assist of her career, lofting a perfect pass to Lindsey Horan to score off a header. Sauebrunn got her second assist of the year and the fourth of her career on Lloyd’s header goal off a free-kick against Costa Rica on July 22.


  • The Olympic roster is broken down into two goalkeepers, six defenders, six midfielders and four forwards, but numerous players on the roster can and have played multiple positions for the USA.
  • The U.S. WNT has won a record 13 consecutive games in the Olympic Football Tournament. Their last loss was a 2-0 setback to Norway in the 2008 opener. With the win against New Zealand, the USA doubled the next best series of victories, set by the Norwegians between 2000-08.
  • Carli Lloyd, Hope Solo and Tobin Heath join a list of 12 other U.S. players to be named to three Olympic rosters. Christie Rampone is the only U.S. player to play in four Olympic Games.
  • Solo and Lloyd are tied for the most Olympic appearances on the current roster with 14 each. Heath has 11 and Morgan and O’Hara have eight each.
  • Lloyd scored the winning goal in the gold medal game at each of the last two Olympics. In 2008, she scored the USA’s lone goal in a 1-0 overtime victory against Brazil, and in 2012 she scored both goals in the USA’s 2-1 victory against Japan. Lloyd is the team’s leading scorer with 90 career goals.
  • With 226 caps, Lloyd is the most-capped soccer player at the 2016 Olympic Games.
  • The 11 players selected for their first Olympic Team are: goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher, defenders Whitney Engen, Meghan Klingenberg, Julie Johnston and Ali Krieger, midfielders Allie Long, Lindsey Horan and Morgan Brian, and forwards Mallory Pugh, Crystal Dunn, and Christen Press.
  • Krieger was an alternate in 2008 and most likely would have made the 2012 team, but suffered an ACL tear during the qualifying tournament. Krieger, who will be 32 when the Olympics begin, becomes the oldest first-time U.S. Olympian for women’s soccer.
  • Long, Horan, Dunn and Pugh are the only players on the 2016 Olympic Team who were not members of the 2015 Women’s World Cup team. At the 2012 Olympics in England, there was just one player on the roster who was not on the 2011 Women’s World Cup team: Sydney Leroux.
  • Pugh is the second youngest women’s soccer Olympian in U.S. history as she will be about a month older than Cindy Parlow was at the 1996 Atlanta Games. Pugh will be 18 years, 3 months and 5 days old when the USA opens the Olympics on Aug. 3rd. Parlow was 18 years, 2 months and 13 days old when the USA opened the 1996 Olympics in Orlando, Fla.
  • Pugh, who has scored three goals in 2016, became the youngest American female player to start in an Olympic match when she took the field against New Zealand on Aug. 3.
  • Should Pugh score in the Olympics, she would be the youngest U.S. player to score in the competition as Parlow did not find the net in 1996.
  • Pugh is the only amateur player on the roster, with the other 17 being professional players.
  • Naeher is the least-capped player on the team with seven international appearances, while Long has just 12 caps. Pugh has earned her first 15 caps this year, playing in every game but two in 2016. Johnston was the least capped player on the 2015 WWC Team, being named to the team when she had just nine.
  • There are four players on the roster from California (Rapinoe, Press, Engen and Morgan) with two players each hailing from Georgia (O’Hara and Brian), New Jersey (Heath and Lloyd), New York (Long and Dunn) and Colorado (Horan and Pugh).
  • Six players on the roster have been capped more than 100 times, led by Lloyd, who has played 226 times for the USA; Solo (200), Heath (121), Morgan (114), Rapinoe (113) and Becky Sauerbrunn (111) are the other five.
  • The average age of the U.S. Olympic Women’s Soccer Team at the start of the tournament was 27.8 years old.
  • The average number of caps on the roster heading into the Olympic opener is 77.
  • The U.S. roster has a combined 81 Olympic appearances and 15 goals, all scored by Lloyd (8), Morgan (5) and Rapinoe (2).
  • Of the 16 field players on the roster, only Sauerbrunn has yet to score an international goal.
  • Thirteen of the 18 players on the roster have played for the USA in a FIFA Women’s World Cup at the youth level.
  • Of the 14 players who played in the 2015 Women’s World Cup Final, 11 were named to the Olympic roster.
  • Morgan owns the latest goal in Olympic, FIFA and U.S. history, tallying after 122 minutes and 22 seconds against Canada to notch the game-winning goal in the semifinal of the 2012 Olympics.
  • Nine of the 10 NWSL clubs are represented on the roster, with only the Western New York Flash without a player, although Samantha Mewis was chosen as an alternate.
  • Portland Thorns FC lead the way with four players, followed by the Chicago Red Stars with three and Seattle Reign FC, the Houston Dash and the Washington Spirit with two each. Sky Blue FC, FC Kansas City, the Orlando Pride and the Boston Breakers have one each.


  • U.S. goalkeeper Hope Solo became the first goalkeeper in history to earn 100 shutouts when she blanked South Africa on July 9. Solo has 14 wins in 2016, 12 by shutout, and also has a good chance to surpass her high of 13 shutouts in a calendar year achieved in another Olympic year, 2008. In the semifinal of the WWC, she earned her fifth straight World Cup clean sheet for the USA and 10th in World Cup play, tying the record for most by a U.S. goalkeeper and most in World Cup play with Brianna Scurry. Solo has earned shutouts vs. 29 different countries.
  • With 200 caps, Hope Solo is the first goalkeeper in international soccer history to reach that mark. Briana Scurry earned 173 caps in her career (1994-2008).
  • Solo has the most starts by a WNT goalkeeper with 193 and is in 8th place on the WNT’s all-time starts list behind Lloyd, who has moved into seventh place with 196.
  • Solo has 153 goalkeeper wins and is the all-time leader in wins for a goalkeeper in U.S. history. Brian Scurry had 133 during her career (1994-2008).
  • Carli Lloyd is the 10th woman in U.S. history to reach 200 caps, achieving the feat at the WWC quarterfinal match against China PR on June 26. She is the third active player to reach that mark. Christie Rampone and Heather O’Reilly are the other two. She also became the third player in U.S. history to score in her 200th appearance. Wambach and O’Reilly are the other two.
  • Lloyd is the highest active goal scorer in U.S. history with the players ahead of her, Mia Hamm, Abby Wambach, Kristine Lilly, Tiffeny Milbrett and Michelle Akers all retired.
  • Lloyd is in eighth place on the USA’s all-time caps with 226.
  • With her two assists against Colombia on April 6, Lloyd moved into a tie for ninth place on the U.S. all-time assist list with Aly Wagner at 42 each.
  • Lloyd is in sixth place on the U.S. WNT’s all-time goal scoring list. Now with 90 goals, she is the highest-scoring midfielder in U.S. history.
  • Alex Morgan has 68 goals and is in eighth place on the USA’s all-time goal scoring list. Next up for Morgan is Cindy Parlow’s 75 career goals.
  • Against France on March 6, Morgan Brian earned her 50th cap at the young age of 23. She became the 52nd female player in U.S. history to reach 50 caps. She currently has 56.
  • Against France on March 6, Kelley O’Hara hit 75 caps, making her the 40th U.S. female player to hit that mark. With her 76th cap on March 9 vs. Germany, she moved past Sydney Leroux into 39th on the all-time caps list and now has 84 to go along with her two international goals.
  • Against France on Aug. 6, Ali Krieger earned her 92nd cap with the USA and is now eight away from becoming the 36th player in WNT history to reach the century mark.
  • The three goals for each team during the 3-3 draw on June 2 against Japan equaled the highest-scoring draw in USWNT history. It has occurred only three previous times, most recently vs. Germany in 2013.
