Colombia, ranked 28th in the world by FIFA, upset No. 3 France at the Women's World Cup on Saturday.

Lady Andrade and Catalina Usme scored as Colombia stunned third-ranked France 2-0 on Saturday in one of the biggest upsets in Women's World Cup history.

The underdog Colombians opened the scoring in the 19th minute. Andrade broke free from a pair of defenders for a tap-in goal.

Trailing 1-0 in the 67th minute, France was unlucky not to be given a penalty after Colombian defender Daniela Montoya appeared to deliberately handle the ball inside the penalty area, but the officials allowed play to continue.

Usme clinched her country's first World Cup win with a goal in the 93rd minute after French goalkeeper Sarah Bouhaddi was caught in possession.

"We've proved that we're not just here to make up the numbers, " Colombia coach Fabian Taborda said of his 28th-ranked team. "We knew that we'd have to play intelligently and fight for every ball. My players are real battlers."

The French lost despite outshooting Colombia 21-3 in Moncton, New Brunswick. Much of that was thanks to the play of Colombian goalkeeper Sandra Sepulveda, who made a number of sprawling saves that increasingly frustrated the French attack.

"There were numerous aspects that weren't quite right, " France coach Philippe Bergeroo said. "We weren't accurate enough with our passes at key moments. Despite that, we still created chances, but their goalkeeper had a great match."
