Netherlands key player

ne of the most important and outstanding players of the Dutch team is Danielle Van de Donk, who with her number 10 on her back is capable of carrying the team on her shoulders to achieve important results. 

With more than 100 caps for her national team, her experience will be fundamental to bring her team the possibility of the gold medal, in addition to her playing talent that gives her the possibility of assisting and scoring goals coming from the midfield.

Zambia key player

Although the team's overall play has been decisive for the national team that will make its debut in these Olympic Games, all eyes will be focused on one of its key players. 
Hellen Mubanga is a Zambian player who plays as a striker in Spanish soccer, who is in her best soccer moment and gave the Africans the goal that took them to the Olympic Games. 

Her strength and participation will be fundamental for this day's match.

The Netherlands has a must-win situation

Group F has another big team in women's soccer, so the Netherlands cannot afford to lose or draw this match, as they will have to face Brazil and China later on. 

In this area, the Clockwork Orange team will be looking to get the biggest result possible, as they did against Norway to get a 7-0 score.

Zambia comes from a fight that is not over yet

Despite being a year and a tournament that could be considered historic for the Zambian women's national team for their first participation in an international competition of this size, they have faced some difficulties due to the Coronavirus outbreaks. 
They still managed to come out on top in a series where Cameroon won the first match with a goal by Aboudi Onguene in the 88' leaving a 3-2 final score; however Zambia would fight until the end to achieve a historic comeback, winning 2-1 in the second leg.
