Women's World Cup: Colombia vs. Mexico

Daniela Montoya's booming goal from outside the penalty area in the 82nd minute helped Colombia recover for a 1-1 draw against Mexico in the women's World Cup in Moncton, New Brunswick on Tuesday.

The late draw keeps both countries in search of their first victories in the tournament.

Veronica Perez put Mexico up 1-0 in the 35th minute, turning after a corner kick and firing a right-footed shot that Colombian goalkeeper Castano Cardoso Derly Stefany was unable to keep from just crossing the line.

Yoreli Rincon nearly equalized for Colombia in the 59th minute, but her free kick over the outstretched Mexican goalkeeper Cecelia Santiago hit the post.

However, Montoya tied the game in the final 10 minutes.

Mexico next plays against England on Saturday, while Colombia faces France.
