Canada vs Great Britain predicted line-ups: Team news ahead of Tokyo 2020 fixture

Canada face Great Britain in the final round of group stage matches, with the North American nation hoping to join their European rivals in securing a place in the knockouts.

Ellen White has scored three goals in the two games so far for Team GB, hitting both in a 2-0 win over Chile before scoring the late winner against hosts Japan.

Two clean sheets show the great defensive work and organisation shown by Hege Riise’s side so far, even if they have not yet consistently hit top gear going forward.

A draw would ensure both Canada progress and Great Britain secure first place.
