Just four days after facing Colombia in East Hartford, the U.S. Women’s National Team will take on the South American powerhouse again in preparation for this summer’s Olympics.

U.S. Soccer announced on Wednesday the USWNT will take on Colombia on April 10 at Talen Energy Stadium in Chester, Pa. The game will be the fifth time the USWNT has played at the stadium, formerly PPL Park, following previous contests in 2010 and 2012 as well as two appearances during the Women’s World Cup Qualifying tournament in 2014.

The two Colombia matches will be the first two friendlies following the SheBelieves Cup, which will see the USWNT take on England, France and Germany in early March. The Colombia matchups will also serve as another rematch of the 2014 World Cup Round of 16 clash between the two sides, which ended in a 2-0 USWNT victory.

Colombia is currently ranked 25th in the world, while the USWNT recently sealed Olympic qualification by winning the 2016 CONCACAF Women’s Olympic Qualifying Championship.

What do you think of the second Colombia friendly? What do you expect from the USWNT in the coming months leading up to the Olympics?
