Team news & squad
|goalkeeper||Lindahl, Falk, Musovic|
|defender||Andersson, Kullberg, Glas, Eriksson, Ilestedt, Björn|
|midfield player||Bennison, Hurtig, Asllani, Angeldal, Seger, Roddar|
|Forward||Janogy, Jakobsson, Blackstenius, Schough, Rolfo, Anvegard, Blomqvist|
After breaking the final hurdle against Germany five years ago, the Blue-Yellows will be determined to make up for their heartbreak, especially after a nervous, narrow win over Australia – a team they’d already beaten in Group G – have reserved their place the final.
After an injury that ruined her chances in the early stages of the tournament, Stina Blackstenius has recovered to take the lead, while match winner Fridolina Rolfo and captain Caroline Seger are also at the start.
Probable starting XI for Sweden: Lindahl; Glas, Ilestedt, Björn, Eriksson; Angeldal, Seger; Jakobsson; Asllani, Rolfo; Schwarzstenius.
|goalkeeper||Labbe, Sheridan, McLeod|
|defender||Chapman, Buchanan, Zadorsky, Riviere, Lawrence, Gilles, Carle|
|midfield player||Quinn, Grosso, Scott, Fleming, Schmidt|
|Forward||Rose, Leon, Sinclair, Viens, Prinz, Beckie, Huitema|
Successive bronze medal wins in London in 2012 and Rio in 2016 have brought Les Rouges so close and so far – but after defeating the USWNT world champion, they are on the threshold of history.
Either way, midfielder Quinn is the first ever open transgender Olympic medalist and seems like a safe bet after playing against the Stars and Stripes – while captain Christine Sinclair could win her first major international award since the 2011 Pan American Games.
Estimated starting XI for Canada: Labbe; Lawrence, Gilles, Buchanan, Chapman; Scott; Fleming, Quinn; Sinclair; Beckie, prince.
