Team news & rosters

Position Netherlands roster
Goalkeepers Van Veenendaal, Kop, Geurts
Defenders Wilms, Van der Gragt, Nouwen, Van Dongen, Folkertsma, Van Es, Janssen, Dekker
Midfielders Roord, Van de Donk, Pelova, Groenen, Kaagman
Forwards Van de Sanden, Smits, Miedema, Martens, Beerensteyn, Jansen

With a total haul of 21 goals across their three Group F games - at an eye-watering average of seven per match - the Oranje look to be the form side to beat at Tokyo 2020.

Having swapped a selection of players off at the interval against China, they will likely revert to a similar lineup for the far sturdier test of the Stars and Stripes, with captain Sari van Veenendaal looking to make amends for the events at Parc Olympique Lyonnais two years ago.

Predicted Netherlands starting XI: Van Veenendaal; Wilms, Janssen, Nouwen, Van Dongen; Roord, Groenen, Van de Donk; Van de Sanden, Beerensteyn, Martens.

Position USWNT roster
Goalkeepers Campbell, Fanch, Naeher
Defenders Dahlkemper, Davidson, Dunn, Krueger, O'Hara, Sauerbrunn, Sonnett
Midfielders Ertz, Horan, Lavelle, Macario, K Mewis, S Mewis
Forwards Heath, Lloyd, Morgan, Press, Rapinoe, Williams

With just the one win from their Group G campaign, Vlatko Andonovski's pursuit of an Olympic gold to match the USWNT's World Cup crown has been a less-than-eye-catching journey by the team's usual standards.

Against another heavyweight contender, however, they will need to step up to the plate - and with talents like Megan Rapinoe and Alex Morgan at the front of their attack, they will hope to hit a rich vein of form when they most need it.

Predicted USWNT starting XI: Naeher, O'Hara, Dahlkemper, Sauerbrunn, Dunn, Lavelle, Ertz, Horan, Press, Morgan, Rapinoe.
