Two surprise packages vie for bronze

Today in Bielefeld, the two teams will be looking to make a little bit of history by securing their first podium finish at the event. One Korean player who will not need any motivation for the game is Ji So-Yun, who remains in the running for the adidas Golden Shoe as the tournament’s top scorer. The striker is currently in second place on seven goals and needs two more to draw level with Germany forward Alexandra Popp.

This match promises to be an veritable treat for football fans. While Choi In-Cheul’s team have shone throughout the tournament with their teamwork and slick passing, Ricardo Rozo’s squad has perhaps showcased more talented individuals. That said, there are plenty of technically gifted footballers on both sides, with Korea‘s Ji constantly catching the eye and Colombia’s Lady Andrade – who returns after missing their semi-final defeat by Nigeria because of suspension – giving opposition defences plenty to think about.

This will be the first time that these two countries have met in the women’s game. However, it will be the eighth occasion in this tournament that Asian and South American teams have faced each other. To date there is nothing to choose between the two confederations, with three wins apiece and one draw.
