Football sometimes delays its justice but, happily in this case, in the end it arrives and rewards those who insist the most.

This is how the Colombia U-20 National Team managed to win 1-0 at the start of the South American Women’s Hexagon in Ecuador.


National teams

Carlos Paniagua’s team struggled, at times they were exhausted, but in the end they celebrated three definitive points on the way to the title, in a match that was delayed by heavy rain and ended almost around midnight in Guayaquil.

In the first half, after 10 minutes, the Colombians were already encouraged and by a miracle the Peruvian goalkeeper saved when Viancha arrived. But time played in favor of the Incas, who came close without enough danger and in a succession of corner kicks Agudelo saved a possible Olympic goal.

​Osorio, López and Motta were also approaching the nationals in that first stage, in which there was great physical exhaustion but little reward.

For the complement, the national team came out better, generating their clearest chances: Viancha had it from mid-range but crashed it on the crossbar, Motta missed a clear header option and Perlaza was encouraged in the play that changed the scene: hand in the area, which seemed involuntary, but for the referee it was a penalty. Without hesitation, Mari José Álvarez charged and yes, it was finally 1-0 at 81 minutes.

At the end, one more possible penalty was reviewed for Colombia that was not awarded and Peru also requested another foul that was not charged until the whistle declared the first victory in the South American Women’s U-20 hexagonal. There was a lot of fighting and little success, but the three points allow us to correct for what is to come.

Brazil, Paraguay and Colombia lead, in that order, the standings and the most difficult part of this competition is coming.
