Team news & rosters

Position Sweden roster
Goalkeepers Lindahl, Falk, Musovic
Defenders Andersson, Kullberg, Glas, Eriksson, Ilestedt, Bjorn
Midfielders Bennison, Hurtig, Asllani, Angeldal, Seger, Roddar
Forwards Janogy, Jakobsson, Blackstenius, Schough, Rolfo, Anvegard, Blomqvist

Having fallen at the final hurdle to Germany five years ago, the Blue and Yellow will be determined to make amends for their heartbreak, particularly after a nervy, narrow victory over Australia - a side they had already beaten in Group G - booked their spot in the final.

After an injury looked to have dashed her chances in the early stages of the tournament, Stina Blackstenius has recovered to lead the line, while matchwinner Fridolina Rolfo and captain Caroline Seger are among those who are also set to start.

Predicted Sweden starting XI: Lindahl; Glas, Ilestedt, Bjorn, Eriksson; Angeldal, Seger; Jakobsson; Asllani, Rolfo; Blackstenius.

Position Canada roster
Goalkeepers Labbe, Sheridan, McLeod
Defenders Chapman, Buchanan, Zadorsky, Riviere, Lawrence, Gilles, Carle
Midfielders Quinn, Grosso, Scott, Fleming, Schmidt
Forwards Rose, Leon, Sinclair, Viens, Prince, Beckie, Huitema

Back-to-back bronze medal victories at London 2012 and Rio 2016 have made it a case of so close and so far for Les Rouges - but after defeating World Cup holders the USWNT, they sit on the cusp of history.

Midfielder Quinn is certain to be the Olympics' first openly transgender medalist either way, and seems a sure bet to start after starring against the Stars and Stripes - while captain Christine Sinclair could win a first major international honour since the 2011 Pan American Games.

Predicted Canada starting XI:  Labbe; Lawrence, Gilles, Buchanan, Chapman; Scott; Fleming, Quinn; Sinclair; Beckie, Prince.
