How will the rest of the tournament work?

Australia will be one of 12 nations playing in Tokyo alongside Brazil, Canada, Chile, China PR, Great Britain, Japan (host country), Netherlands, New Zealand, Sweden, United States and Zambia.

The Matildas will be hoping to advance through to the quarter-finals, finishing first or second in their group will ensure them a spot. However, a third-place finish could also see them move to the knockout stage.

The Matildas have their eye on the prize and look to go one better and take home Australia’s first-ever Olympic football medal.

How have they gone in the past?

Australia’s past two appearances at a Women’s Olympic Football Tournament saw them eliminated in the quarter-finals. Heartbreak in 2016 for the Matildas saw them beaten in penalty shootouts by host nation Brazil, while in Athens 2004 they were beaten by Sweden in the quarter-finals.
