Sweden vs Canada live streaming: Preview
It all comes down to this.
Not many predicted it would be these two nations competing in the Gold Medal Match but both are now just 90 minutes from history.
Sweden sent out an early warning to the rest on matchday one of the group phase, hammering world champions USA 3-0.
The Blue and Yellows went on to win all three group games, beating Australia 4-2 and New Zealand 2-0.
They then carried this form into the quarter-finals, edging out hosts Japan 3-1; Magdalena Eriksson, Stina Blackstenius and Kosovare Asllani scoring.
Then, in Monday’s semi against Australia, Fridolina Rolfo got the only goal, volleying home from close-range after a scramble in the area.
So Sweden have now made it to back-to-back Women’s Olympics Football Finals.
Having lost 2-1 to Germany in Rio de Janeiro five years ago, will Sweden win their first Women’s title since Euro 1984?
Canada’s road to the final has been a lot less smooth.
The Reds only won once in Group E, beating Chile, but finishing second thanks to draws with Great Britain and Japan.
Their quarter-final against Brazil finished scoreless after two hours and Stephanie Labbe was the hero, saving two spot-kicks in the shootout.
So, this set up a semi-final clash against USA, a side they’d never beaten in 13 competitive meetings.
But, they finally ended this hoodoo, Jessie Fleming firing home a 75th minute penalty, sparking wild celebrations on the Canadian bench.
The Canucks, finally, coming out of the shadow of the neighbours from the south.
Canada won bronze in the Women’s Olympics Football in both 2012 and 2016 and have already bettered that.
Now, will Bev Priestman’s side cause another upset and make history?
Who will claim Women’s Olympics Football Gold at the Japan National Stadium in Tokyo?
Prediction: Sweden 2-1 Canada
These two have met four times at major tournaments and Sweden are yet to lose.
They’ve beaten Canada in the World Cup semi-finals in 2003 and in the round of 16 at the World Cup two years ago.
They’ve also met twice at Olympic Games, both in group stages, drawing 2-2 in 2012 in Newcastle with Sweden winning 2-1 four years earlier in Beijing.
