In the 2022 edition of the Conmebol Copa América Femenina, the national team Colombia and Brazil maintain a perfect score, having defeated all their rivals by a wide margin in the group stage of the competition.
It was striking that the national coach, Nelson Abadía, did not summon players of offensive stature such as midfielders Yoreli Rincón, Isabella Echeverri or Natalia Gaitán in his list of 23 players and despite the fact that this decision has repercussions on possible vetoes, other names of the local talent that were able to show during the development of the continental competition came to lightas is the case of the center forward Mayra Tatiana Ramirez Ramirez.
Mayra Ramírez was born on March 23, 1999 in Sibaté, Cundinamarca, and from an early age she began to discover her talent and good performance as a scorer and finisher in the area 9 position.
The cundinamarquesa debuted in soccer in 2015 when the Colombian Women’s Professional League had not yet been created. Wearing the colors of the sports club royal passionRamírez made the leap in quality in 2019 to officiate as a player of Sports Independent Medellin (SID) and a year later he had the opportunity to reach the rented Spanish to wear the colors of the Sporting Club of Huelvateam in which he was from 2020 to 2022.
In 2022 Mayra made the leap from Huelva to Valencia, as this year she was announced as the club’s new signing Raise Sports Unionwhich received the endorsement of FIFA for the Colombian to travel to represent her national team in the Women’s America Cup that is being carried out in Cali, Armenia and Bucaramanga.
Regarding the Colombian selection, Mayra debuted in 2018 with the national team. She did it for his participation in the Central American and Caribbean Games and specifically, he wore the tricolor jacket on July 19 of that year facing Costa Rica in the 0-1 defeat of the coffee growers.
Later, he participated in the Peru Pan American Games 2019in which he raised his first title in the list of winners by getting the gold medal by overcoming Argentina.
Before the Copa América 2022 began, Mayra managed to convert three international goals with the senior women’s team. She marked these many for her Peru (April 8, 2019 in Lima); Chili (May 16, 2019 in Santiago); Y Argentina (February 20, 2022 in Cali).
When Mayra scored a goal, the Colombian team never lost, as the results of the previous three matches ended 4-0, 2-0 and 2-2, respectively. In fact, this trend was maintained in the group stage of group A of the Copa América Femenina 2022, considering that At the Pascual Guerrero Olympic Stadium, the 23-year-old attacker from Cundinamarca scored two goals and provided an assist, playing a total of 206 minutes out of a possible 360 in all four group stage games.
Mayra was a starter in the debut game against Paraguay and also on date 3 against Ecuador; On those two occasions she was substituted with 10 minutes to go: first by elexa bahr (at 87′) on July 8 and then for Gabriela Rodriguez (at 87′) on July 17.
Mayra had to be revulsive of the national team in the Copa América Femenina on July 11 when Colombia thrashed Bolivia 0-3 in Cali. That day he entered the 58th minute to replace the midfielder Lorraine Bedoya.
Of the 13 goals scored by Colombia in the group stage, Mayra converted two and assisted one as follows:

Sunday July 17, 2022: 0-1 of the final 1-2 against Ecuador:
Sunday July 17, 2022: 1-two of the final 1-2 against Ecuador (ASSIST):
We will have to wait, then, if Nelson Abadía takes Ramírez into account again in the usual starting scheme 4-2-3-1 of the Tricolor for next Monday, July 25 at the Alfonso López Pumarejo stadium in Bucaramangadate on which the national team will face Argentina in the semifinal of the competition.
In the same position as Mayra, the soccer players Tatiana Ariza, Elexa Bahr, Gisela Robledo and Gabriela Rodríguez, summoned by Abadía for the Copa América Femenina Colombia 2022, are competing.
