MANAUS, Brazil, Aug. 9 (UPI) -- Depth, range, and pure raw talent will keep the United States Women's National Team undefeated Tuesday after a 6 p.m. matchup with Colombia.
The USWNT is 16-0-1 in 2016 and has 15 shutouts. Colombia lost 4-0 to France and 1-0 to New Zealand so far in group play.
Jill Ellis' squad beat France 1-0 and New Zealand 2-0 in the Summer Games. Tuesday's match gives the USWNT a chance to claim first place in Group G.
A win would make the USWNT the first team to ever win a World Cup and Olympic gold in back-to-back years. A victory or tie would set up a quarterfinal match-up against the third place team from Group E or F for the Americans.
The USWNT beat Colombia 7-0 and 3-0 in April.
USWNT superstar scorer Carli Lloyd has been scoring at a historic pace. Lloyd now has 90 international goals. If she scores 10 more, she would become the sixth player in American history to score 100 or more. She is also two scores away from tying now-retired USWNT star Abby Wambach for a record 10 Olympic scores.
All-World goalkeeper Hope Solo showed her significance to the squad in the USWNT's win against France. She made five saves on five shots on goal while her French counterpart made two saves on three shots on goal. The USWNT was outshot 14 to 7 in the contest. Look for Solo to be a brick wall against the Colombian attack.
The match will air on NBCSN from Arena da Amazonia in Manaus, Brazil.
