With no defeats in the past year, there are few sides likely to be rivaling the Blue and Yellow for a medal finish - but Peter Gerhardsson will know that his side must be at their best to ensure there are no slip-ups on the route to a podium spot.
An injury to Stina Blackstenius means that Rebecka Blomqvist may well keep her spot from the final group-stage win over New Zealand, along with a return for Fridolina Rolfo.
Predicted Sweden starting XI: Lindahl; Glas, Ilestedt, Eriksson, Andersson; Janogy, Hurtig, Seger, Jakobsson; Blomqvist, Rolfo.
|Goalkeepers||Ikeda, Yamashita, Hirao|
|Defenders||Shimizu, Takarada, Kumagai, Minami, Miyagawa, Kitamura, Miyake|
|Midfielders||Sugita, Nakajima, Miura, Endo, Shiokoshi, Hasegawa, Hayashi, Kinoshita|
|Forwards||Sugasawa, Iwabuchi, Tanaka, Momiki|
With the expectations of a home nation upon their shoulders, Nadeshiko Japan face a stern test - but will undoubtedly back themselves to rise to the occasion in the last eight.
Ayaka Yamashita looks likely to keep the gloves after taking them for the last two group-stage games while Mina Tanaka may well get the nod ahead of Yuika Sugasawa in a front two.
Predicted Japan starting XI: Yamashita; Shimizu, Kumagai, Takarada, Kitamura; Hasegawa, Miura, Hayashi, Sugita; Iwabuchi, Tanaka.
