Mexico settles for draw with Colombia after late goal ruled out for foul

Daniela Montoya's booming goal from outside the penalty box 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 World Cup victories.

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.

Charlyn Corral thought she had scored a winner for Mexico in stoppage time, but the goal was ruled out for a controversial foul on Stephany Mayor in the buildup.

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