Great Britain take on Australia at Kashima Stadium in the women's quarter-finals at the Tokyo Olympics 2021.

Great Britain have been unbeaten in the tournament so far, topping Group E with two wins and a draw. Hege Riise will be happy with her side's performances, having conceded only one goal in the group stage. They will be confident going into the game on Friday.

Australia, on the other hand, qualified for the quarter-finals as one of the best third-placed teams from the group stage. Tony Gustavsson's side will be in high-spirits, having held world champions USA to a 0-0 draw in their final group game.

However, they will need to step up their performance if they are to advance to the semi-finals of the tournament.

Great Britain are heavy favorites going into the game, but Australia have shown that they can be resilient and could make it difficult for Hege Riise's side.
