Melbourne Rectangular Stadium hosted Colombia vs Jamaica FIFA Women's World Cup 2023 Round of 16 clash on Tuesday. Colombia have made history with a 1-0 victory over Jamaica, winning a FIFA Women's World Cup knockout stage game for the first time. Both teams struggled to get a hold of the game in the first half. Jamaica sat back and looked to release their talisman Khadija Shaw to create chances in transition, countering Colombia's attacking threat by attempting to dominate them physically, particularly in midfield.

The game came into life in the second half when a superb switch of play from Ana Guzman found her captain Catalina Usme. She slotted home with aplomb to become the first player to score against Jamaica at these global finals. Colombia will face now England in the Quarter-Final on 12th August.
