A Colombian soccer player who ‘sucker punched’ American opponent in the face during an Olympic game could face disciplinary action from the sport’s governing body.

Lady Andrade was caught on camera apparently laying out U.S. star Abby Wambach during a fixture between the two countries on Saturday which ended in Team USA beating Colombia 3-0.

Now FIFA is examining the case after being contacted by U.S. authorities, and Andrade could learn her fate as early as today.

Wambach, 32, was left with a black eye following the violent incident – but still went on in the second half to score a goal and break the U.S. women’s soccer record for scoring at the Olympics, with a tally of six.

Footage appears to show Andrade punch Wambach straight in the face, sending her to the ground writhing in pain.

However, the incident went unnoticed by referees and play continued.

After the game, officials from Team USA contacted FIFA to draw the organisation’s attention to the incident, although they did not go as far as to file a formal complaint.

‘I think it’s important that you recognize it,’ said coach Pia Sundhage. ‘I watched it on video, and I’d say it’s very unusual, playing like that and trying to get her out of the game. That doesn’t belong in the game.’

Although it is unclear what punishment Andrade might face if found to have acted against the rules of the sport, it is common for soccer players who commit violent acts on the pitch to be suspended for multiple games.

Andrade, a striker, could therefore miss the rest of Colombia’s Olympic fixtures.

A slow motion replay of the incident appears to show an intentional right-hook to the face.

‘I’m running toward the goal to get position, and I got sucker-punched,’ said Wambach, sporting a black semicircle under her swollen right eye after the game.

‘It’s clear. We have it on film, so it’s up to the Olympic committee and FIFA to decide what to do.’

Wambach said Andrade kept on taunting in the second half and attempted another blow to the face – but missed and hit Wambach’s neck instead.

When Wambach scored in the 74th minute to make the score 2-0, the achievement felt particularly sweet.

‘Absolutely. It’s interesting – you think about yourself and what you would do on the street if somebody were to sucker-punch you,’ Wambach said.

‘And you have all of the lists of things that you would probably do to retaliate, but this is Olympics and I can’t risk getting a red card, I can’t risk getting a yellow card.’

‘We like to call it ‘ice’ – stay ice cold. They’re trying to get me to retaliate, and I’m proud of myself for not doing that.’

Wambach shared a photo of her shiner this morning on her Twitter acount, showing the swollen, bruised eye she will have to play with for the rest of the competition.

‘Thanks for all the well wishes. Eye is healing fine. #reversesmokeyeye #notcool,’ she said.

Her fans are up in arms about the player’s injury, calling for Andrade to be investigated.

They are also very impressed with Wambach’s sportsmanship.

‘What’s most impt, Abby, is that you responded by competing harder not by retaliating in kind #sportsmanship #integrity #USWNT,’ tweeted Jim Sylvester, an attorney in Texas.

Unsurprisingly, Andrade’s version of yesterday’s events in Glasgow, Scotland, was different and she dismissed the run-in as an accident.

‘Nothing happened,’ she said through an interpreter.

‘It was just a normal part of the game. We were both running, she ran across me and we collided. I had my hands in the air. It was an accident.’

Told that Wambach wants Andrade disciplined by the governing bodies, the Colombian said: ‘I think they should be, too, because they’re the United States. The whistle always goes in their favor. They were hitting us and hitting us, but there was never a whistle.’
