USA cruise into last eight
 Women's Football World Cup News 2 Jul 2011
 
United States 3 (O'Reilly 12, Rapinoe 50, Lloyd 57) Colombia 0
att: 25,475; at the Rhein Neckar Arena, Sinsheim

The United States eased their way into the last eight of the World Cup once more as they swept past Colombia with a 3-0 victory. 
 
USA piled forward in the opening stages and Amy Rodriguez went close to giving them the lead when shooting over after Abby Wambach's initial effort had been blocked.
 
However they took a 12th minute lead through a superb strike from Heather O'Reilly, who took advantage of some slack play by Colombia to send a fierce 20-yard strike into the top corner of the net.
 
O'Reilly went close to a second goal soon afterwards, the ball rebounding to Wambach who shot just wide. The same two were to combine again, this time a cross from O'Reilly was headed just over by Wambach.
 
Colombia played some neat passing football but the Americans were too physically strong for them and they took a frim grip on the game within five minutes of the restart. Megan Rapinoe, who had come on as a half time substitute, netted the second goal after being set up by Lauren Cheney.
 
USA only had to wait seven minutes before further increasing their lead, Carli Lloyd beating Sandra Sepulveda with a long range strike.
 
Wambach came close to what would have been a somewhat fortuitous goal as she chased a long pass. Sepulveda got the ball first, her clearance hitting the striker and rebounding back against the post before it was cleared.
 
Colombia's best chance came in the dying minutes when Carmen Rodallega released Katerin Castro on goal, however instead of shooting with her right foot she dragged it back on to her left and the opportunity was lost. 
 
United States: Hope Solo, Alex Krieger, Christie Rampone, Lauren Cheney, Rachel Buehler, Amy Le Peilbet (sub Stephanie Cox 56mins), Lori Lindsey, Amy Rodriguez (sub Megan Rapinoe 45mins), Heather O'Reilly (sub Tobin Heath 62mins), Carli Lloyd, Abby Wambach.

Colombia: Sandra Sepulveda, Yulieht Dominguez, Natalia Gaitan, Diana Ospina, Nataly Arias, Kelis Peduzine, Catalina Usme (sub Orianica Velasquez 53mins), Katerin Castro, Carmen Rodallega, Fatima Montano, Liana Salazar (sub Yoreli Rincon 55mins).
