Despite losing its opening game 3-0 to Sweden, the USWNT is in a strong position to reach the quarter-finals.

Australia also lost to Sweden in the Olympics group, but a win over local rivals New Zealand puts it in good shape heading into the last game.

Like the USWNT, a point will probably be enough to qualify, but a win over the U.S. could provide an easier fixture in the quarter-finals.

Predicted Australia starting XI:  Williams, Carpenter, Polkinghorne, Catley, Raso, van Egmond, Luik, Yallop, Simon, Kerr, Foord.
