The late draw keeps both countries in search of their first victories in the tournament.

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.

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