The U.S. women's soccer team made it two wins in two games Saturday and remembered an injured teammate in a 3-0 win over Colombia.
Megan Rapinoe scored in the 33rd minute for the Americans. After her goal, she reached into her sock and pulled out a birthday message for Ali Krieger, who blew out her knee in a qualifying match in January. Krieger turned 28 Saturday.
Abby Wambach made it 2-0 in the 74th, and Carli Lloyd scored in the 77th.
The win all but assured a quarterfinal berth for the Americans, pending the results of Saturday's other matches. The U.S. has one group game remaining, against North Korea in Manchester on Tuesday.
Colombia wraps up with France against Newcastle on the same day.
