At the same time, tournament favorites the USA lost to Sweden, hosts Japan started their tournament with a draw against Canada, and Marta led Brazil tore apart China, as they five past their defense.

Today, at day two of the Tokyo Olympics, we might see a few teams like Netherlands, Brazil, and Sweden confirm their spots in the next rounds of the tournament. And many teams like Japan, the USA, Zambia and New Zealand will be pushing to get all three points and get back into the qualification zone.
