The Mexican Football Federation (FMF) announced a long rumored friendly for the Women’s National Team against Colombia. The match will take place on Tuesday, September 21st at Estadio Azteca, the second such match since the “restart” of the program at the start of the year. The last time El Tri Femenil played at El Coloso de Santa Úrsula was a 3-1 win over Costa Rica back on February 20.

The last time México played Colombia was during the 2019 Pan American Games. getting a 2-2 draw at Estadio Universidad San Marcos in Lima, Perú. While it was a decent result, it left México out of the knockout stage and the team finished fifth overall. In their prior match, Colombia beat México 1-0 to open the 2015 Pan American Games in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada on a goal from Catalina Usme. México wound up winning the bronze medal, while Colombia won silver. The last México win was on October 27th, 2011 when Jenny Ruíz picked up a goal in the 100th minute of the 2011 Pan American Games Bronze Medal match to get México the win in Guadalajara.

It will be interesting to see how Mónica Vergara uses this friendly. So far she seems to have a first team that she calls on, however as this will be one of the last cycles before the 2022 Concacaf W Championship, Vergara may use it to take a look at some fringe players and players whose form in Liga MX Femenil or other leagues may warrant a fresh look.
