Hockeyroos

The Hockeyroos have been on fire at Oi Hockey Stadium throughout the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games without dropping a game to date. They will look to continue that unbeaten form as they take on India in the must win quarter-final match up. India finished fourth in their Group with a two-win three-loss record from Olympic play. They will need to be on their best form if they have any chance to deliver the Australians their first loss of the Games. The meeting is scheduled for a 1:00pm AEST start. - Australian Olympic Team 

Matildas 

Our Matildas take on Sweden at International Stadium Yokohama looking to secure their position in the gold medal game against the either United States or Canada. Australia downed Great Britain 4-3 in a thrilling quarter-final clash on Friday night which saw Sam Kerr put two in the net for the Matildas. Sweden is fresh off their victory over host nation Japan and won every game of their Tokyo 2020 tournament to date. Kick-off is set for 9:00pm AEST in the must win match. - Australian Olympic Team
