In the most anticipated game of their pool Australia lost to host country Colombia with a score of 5-0.
Colombia were a tough match for the Australian girls but during the first half despite many opportunities Australia's defence prevailed against repetitive shots from the tough competition. The first goal was unfortunately an own goal in a moment of confusion from the Australian team.
Colombia's success snowballed from that point and despite goal keeper Serena Conynghmam's best efforts which saw her diving through the air, a powerful shot from Natalia Riveros snuck past the Australian keeper.
In the following games, Australian women's team will compete against with Canada. It will be the last game on their preliminary competition.
