Kookaburras V Belgium Gold Medal Match (Josh Simmonds)*
The Kookaburras face Belgium for a position at the top of the Olympic podium in the gold medal match. Australia and Belgium have met 42 times previously with the Kookaburras notching 30 wins, seven draws and five losses. The Kookaburras will need to be at their best at both ends of the pitch if they are to prevail. They go into the Olympic Final with every reason to believe they can. The gold medal match is set for an 8:00pm AEST start.
The Matildas are into the bronze medal game and face a familiar foe from the Tokyo 2020 tournament, the United States. The Australians faced the former world champions in their third game of Group play where after a tense 90 minutes neither team was able to capitalise and score a goal. The Australians most recently fell to Sweden 1-0 on Monday night with the Americans fresh off a loss to rivals Canada. Kick-off is scheduled for 6:00pm AEST.
