Colombia's 17 year old starlet Yoreli Rincón is one of the most exciting teenagers in world football, while Sweden have an embarrassment of riches up top at striker. Keep an eye on Lotta Schelin, who is regularly compared to her countryman, Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Here's all the info on the game, including where to watch it on television.
