[WOMEN'S WORLD CUP QUALIFYING] Colombia's Cafeteras joined Brazil as the two South American representatives at the 2011 Women's World Cup in Germany when it beat Argentina, 1-0, on Sunday to claim second place in the Conmebol qualifying tournament in Quito, Ecuador.

Ingrid Vidal's goal gave Colombia the win to qualify for the finals for the first time. Colombian women's soccer is on the rise following appearances at the 2008 U-17 Women's World Cup and 2010 U-20 Women's World Cup, where the Cafeteras finished fourth

Brazil got two goals from Marta and beat Chile, 3-1, to win the South American women's title for the fifth time. The only time it didn't win was in 2006 when Argentina captured the title.

Brazil and Colombia also qualified for the 2012 Olympics women's soccer tournament.

Sunday's conclusion of the Conmebol tournament leaves only one berth undecided. The USA takes a 1-0 edge into Saturday's second leg of its playoff with Italy following its win in Padova.
