Matildas to face USA in Bronze Medal Match

The Matildas were defeated 1-0 by Sweden in a tight Tokyo 2020 Olympics semi-final at Nissan Stadium, Yokohama.

An early goal in the second half from Fridolina Rolfö was enough for the Swedes to win through to their second straight Olympics gold medal match.

Australia made one change to the starting line-up that took on Great Britain in the quarter-final with midfielder Chloe Logarzo coming in for defender Aivi Luik.

It was a closely fought opening 20 minutes from two sides who had seen a lot of each other in the lead-up to the semi-final encounter.
