Women’s Soccer at the Olympics, live! How to watch USWNT, schedule, start time, bracket, video

The Women’s Olympic soccer tournament is stacked in Tokyo and it has already been one heck of a tournament.

And we will have you covered throughout.

[ LIVE: Watch USA – Netherlands ]

The United States women’s national team have won the last two World Cups, but their 2016 Olympics was a rare failure as the team failed to medal for the first time in six tournaments.

After being hammered in their opening group game by Sweden, the USWNT hammered New Zealand to get back on track and then drew with Australia to finish second in Group G and limp into the knockout rounds.

Due to finishing second in their group, the USWNT will now face the Netherlands (the number four ranked team in the world who scored 21 goals in the group stage…) in the quarterfinals in a rematch of the 2019 World Cup final.

Sweden won Group G with a perfect three wins out of three, Great Britain won Group E and remain unbeaten and racked up seven points, while the Netherlands won Group F and edged out Brazil on goal difference as they both finished with seven points.

Hosts Japan and an emerging Australia side clinched the final two spots in the quarterfinals as the best-placed third-place teams.

The goal of the tournament so far is from Dominique Janssen, who scored an incredible free kick for the Netherlands against Brazil, and you can see her stunning strike in the video below. What a hit.

After being postponed due to COVID, the 2020 Tokyo Olympics will take place in Tokyo, Japan, Friday, July 23 – Sunday, August 8, 2021.
