Is Canada vs Great Britain on TV? Kick-off time, channel and how to watch Tokyo 2020 fixture
Great Britain are heading into their final group stage match and they are looking to secure top spot, which would mean they play a third-placed nation in the quarter-finals.
Hege Riise’s side have already seen off Chile and hosts Japan so far, with the final game coming against Canada who currently sit in second.
Ellen White has scored all three goals so far, though there could be some changes to the team given Team GB’s progression to the last eight is already guaranteed.
Full-back Lucy Bronze wants the clean sheets to continue and says Great Britain have been really working on their off-the-ball movement, which has yielded sucessess so far: “If you don’t concede goals, you can’t lose games,” she said. “Japan had a couple of shots, but they were from long distance. I think that was an area we picked up on, when we played New Zealand before the tournament, we knew that was something we could tighten up on with defensive transitions.”
