The U.S. women will play Colombia twice in April — in East Hartford, Conn., on April 6, and in Chester, Pa., on April 10.

The first game, at 6 p.m. CT, will be broadcast on Fox Sports 1. The second, at 1 p.m. CT, will be on ESPN.

Colombia, ranked 25th in the world and second in South America (behind Brazil), is considered a team on the rise. At last summer’s World Cup, the Colombian women made it to the Round of 16, where Team USA beat them 2-0. That was the last time the two teams met.

In the group stage, Colombia played Mexico to a 1-1 draw, upset powerhouse France 2-0, and lost 2-1 to England.

The two friendlies against Colombia will be the first games after the United States hosts England, France and Germany in the SheBelieves Cup March 3-9.
