Note: Four Colombia WNT players were ruled out before the game due to COVID-19 protocols. USSF said in a press release that a staff member of the Colombia delegation tested positive on Saturday after arriving in Orlando, and that contact tracing identified three “low risk” players. The staff member and players have been isolated, and though follow-up testing showed negative results for the three players, both federations agreed to hold them out of the match out of “an abundance of caution.” A fourth player had “inconclusive test results” after arriving in Orlando and is also being held out.
