Two players for Colombia’s women’s team were hospitalized with

injuries on Tuesday.

Midfielder Catalina Usme was carried off in first-half stoppage

time at St. James Park with a right knee injury and was eventually

admitted to Spire Washington Hospital.

Forward Ingrid Vidal was taken to Royal Victoria Infirmary by

ambulance two hours after the match for dehydration.

Substitute Melissa Ortiz dislocated her right shoulder but did

Colombia was eliminated from its first Olympic tournament after

losing all three matches without scoring a goal.
