Team GB and England defender Lucy Bronze in action against Canada

Great Britain’s women meet Australia in the quarter-finals of the Tokyo Olympics’ football tournament today.

Each nation is out to take another step towards a medal, with Team GB coach Hege Riise’s side looking to continue their unbeaten run at the tournament. A late goal from Caroline Weir secured a point against Canada in their final group-stage game to avoid a quarter-final clash with Brazil. The Matildas, meanwhile, enter the knockout stages of the competition having secured an impressive draw against the USA.

Riise remains confident in her side ahead of kick-off, however. “I believe strongly in this team, a great team always finds a way to come back and we did,” she said this week. “Closer to the finish [against Canada] we started to get some momentum, luckily we were good enough to get the goal. It was an important goal [from Weir], we top the group, we’re staying here and have a little bit more rest so we are happy.

“There are always things you want to improve on, we have played three games against three good opponents and have performed better and better. We haven’t been together that long so we’ll improve every game. Overall we looked strong and confident and that will be important going forward.”
