Women’s football at the Tokyo Olympics is underway and Team GB are through to the quarter-finals of the competition.

After winning their first two matches, they secured a 1-1 draw against Canada in their final Group E match.

Unlike in the men’s version where age limits apply, women’s teams can field their strongest, senior sides, so the women’s game sees the competition as a major tournament and gold medals are seen as the pinnacle of players’ careers. 

When are Team GB’s games?

After progressing from their group, Team GB will now face Australia, boasting Chelsea striker Sam Kerr on Friday morning in Kashima (10am BST).

In the other quarters, Sweden will take on hosts Japan in Saitama, Netherlands will face USA in Yokohama and Canada will face Brazil.

The semi-finals will take place in Yokohama on August 2.

The final, in Tokyo, will be played on August 6.
