A whirlwind opening day of women’s soccer comes to a close with No.3 ranked France matching wits with world No. 24 Colombia at 9 p.m. EDT on Wednesday at the Mineirão in Belo Horizonte.

WATCH: Colombia vs France on

France’s team is comprised mostly of players from Lyon, Montpellier and Paris Saint-Germain, with two players from FCF Juvisy and a lone player competing outside of France in Wolfsburg’s Elise Bussaglia. She’ll become the fourth-most capped women’s player in French history in her next appearance.

Colombia is a better squad than its shown in recent blowouts by the United States, and has a pair of attacking stars in Lady Andrade and Tatiana Ariza.

In addition to streaming, the match will also be available on the NBC Sports app.
