Team GB vs Australia: Olympics football quarter-final updates – LIVE!

Hege Riise’s side topped Group E with seven points after beating Chile and Japan and drawing with Canada, and their rewards is a quarter-final tie against the Aussies.

Riise was not initially due to manage the team in Japan but former England boss Phil Neville, who was pencilled in for the job, joined Inter Miami in January.

But the coach is loving the unexpected opportunity, and is relishing the chance of shaping the Team GB footballing culture as she has called for a “brave” performance.

Riise has a fully fit squad to call on, and Chelsea striker Fran Kirby could be handed her first start of the competition after recovering from a knock she suffered in training before the team flew to Japan.
