Great Britain vs Chile Live Stream: How to Watch Tokyo Olympics Game Online and TV Today
Hege Riise leads the GB squad to the 2020 Olympics on Wednesday as Great Britain face Chile in their first meeting in the group stage.
Canada and host Japan are the other nations in Group E, where the top two place automatically and third place could be quite good – the top two thirds of the three groups will advance to the quarter-finals.
Great Britain are among the teams likely to win a medal this summer and big favorites to win this group. A solid performance is therefore expected with the side dominated by Manchester City players, who finished second in the WSL last season.
At the top of the group, Team GB would face a team third in the last eight, but there is a lot of work to be done before worrying about the knockout stage.
Here’s everything you need to know before the game.
When is the match?
The match will start at 8:30 am BST at the Sapporo Dome.
Where can I watch it?
The match will be broadcast live on BBC 2 and broadcast on BBC iPlayer. It will also be broadcast on Eurosport 1 and discovery +.
What is the news of the team?
Riise lined up on a double pivot when she led the England national team in friendlies in April and, with most of the Great Britain squad made up of lionesses, there will likely be an approach similar here. Fran Kirby has been a central cog in these shots and is likely to be a key performer playing right next to the striker.
Chile has several established seniors, with seven players on the squad having accumulated more than 50 caps at the international level. Lyon goalkeeper Christiane Endler is the team captain and one of the group’s best-known players.
