Is Great Britain vs Australia in Olympics quarter-final on TV?

Team GB coach Hege Riise has said her team look “strong and confident” ahead of Great Britain women’s clash with Australia at Tokyo 2020.

A place in the Olympics football semi-finals is up for grabs as the Matildas meet Riise’s side in the quarter finals.

A draw against Canada secured an unbeaten group stage for Team GB.

“Overall we looked strong and confident and that will be important going forward,” said Riise. “I believe strongly in this team, a great team always finds a way to come back and we did. Closer to the finish 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.”
