Defensively remarkably uneven

The statistics show a pair of very evenly matched teams on offense, as Brazil has eight goals scored, while Zambia has only one less.

Zambia key player

One of the most outstanding athletes in soccer and in the Olympic Games in general, is the Zambian soccer player, Barbra Banda. 

She has been in charge of scoring six of the seven goals that her national team has generated, so she will be fundamental in the next match and a player to be considered as MVP of the contest, since despite the bad path of her team, she has stood out and competed in a good way.

11:31 PM2 months ago

Brazil's key player

Marta Vieira has been the most outstanding player of the green-yellow squad, with three goals in her account and participating at all times when her team needs to go on the attack. 

She has the attitude of a leader and a tremendous positioning at the moment of having an offensive play, it is for these reasons that to a large extent her team has a certain dependence on her. 

11:26 PM2 months ago

Bad news for Zambia

The African team has been a bundle of emotions in their first Olympic Games in history, as they arrived very excited to be the only team representing the African continent. 

However, along the way they have encountered a great disparity against a team such as the Dutch, who gave them a tremendous 10-3 thrashing. 

Subsequently, they drew 4 goals with China, but if they lose or draw today they would be saying goodbye to the Olympic Games, their only hope would be a victory that seems to be far away against an experienced Brazilian team.

11:21 PM2 months ago

Brazil's good moment

The difference is notable in the Brazilian national team, who arrive with a total of four points to play this last match and with a 5-0 victory over China and a 3-3 score against the Netherlands. 

Today they will have to play a serious game and score as many goals as possible so that in case the Dutch win, they can have the advantage that would give them the pass as first place in group F.
