Canada take on Brazil at Miyagi Stadium in the women's quarter-finals at the Tokyo Olympics 2021.

Both sides have been unbeaten so far during the tournament and will look to book their place in the semi-finals with a win on Friday.

Canada have not been at their best during the tournament, drawing two of their three group games. Bev Priestman will need her side to step up their performance if they are to beat powerhouse Brazil.

Pia Sundhage's team surprisingly finished second in Group F due to goal difference despite winning two of their three games.

Brazil were strong favorites to reach the finals heading into the tournament and will need to show their class when they come up against a feisty Canada side on Friday.

With a spot in the semi-finals on the line, Friday's game is sure to be an enthralling matchup.
