It’s a tall order, but Caicedo is no stranger to big stages. She was a breakout star at the senior Women’s World Cup last summer, leading Colombia to the quarterfinals for the first time ever.

Despite the pressure and attention, Caicedo remains unfazed, drawing on her experiences as a cancer survivor to stay focused and calm. Her battle with ovarian cancer at 15 has given her a perspective that belies her years, and she continues to impress with her maturity and talent on the field. “I always try to stay calm,” Caicedo said. “I simply concentrate on my football and do what I can do on the field.”

Caicedo’s impressive skills have earned her comparisons to soccer legend Neymar, but she remains humble and dedicated to her craft. As she leads Colombia into the World Cup, Caicedo is determined to make her mark and bring glory to her country.

With her talent, determination, and inspiring story, Caicedo is a true role model for young soccer players around the world. As she takes the field, fans will be watching with bated breath, knowing that they’re witnessing something special – a young star on the rise, with a heart full of passion and a spirit that can’t be beat.
