    The U.S. women’s soccer team went home with a 3-0 win over Colombia on Saturday, the team’s second win of the day. A goal from Megan Rapinoe put the Americans in the lead in the first half of the game, and they hung on to it from there. Goalkeeper Hope Solo was left mostly idle during the game.

The women will face off against North Korea on Tuesday.
