8:23 - kick off is almost among us..the team are heading out

You have to feel for the players today. The game in theory, a huge spectacle. The stadium, utterly empty.
Team GB’s squad definitely edge Letelier’s Chilean side on Olympic experience, however both sides are coming into the games with a sense of unpredictability and excitement. Today’s fixture could provide for an interesting game.
Chile have reached new milestones since Jose Letelier took charge six years ago. 2018 saw a valiant Chile side finish runners up in the Copa America, in 2019 they qualified for the World Cup for the first time ever, and the 2020 Tokyo offers them a chance to break even more records should they clinch a medal at the games. Chile are currently ranked 37th in the FIFA world rankings, but Letelier’s side have potential to cause Team GB problems today.
After eight years without an Olympic performance, Team GB have come into this tournament as an unknown side but are certainly not short on talent or experience. Guided by 2000 Olympic gold medallist coach Hege Riise, Team GB have arrived in Tokyo with their sights set firmly on a medal. They face a tough group against hosts Japan and an esteemed Canadian side. Today’s game offers GB a chance to grab points against the lowest ranked side in Group E, and I am sure they will be looking to utilise that.
Lyon's Endler captains Jose Letelier's side today. Le Havre midfielder Francisca Lara Chile's all-time top goal scorer starts today and she'll definitely be one to watch.
It was confirmed today that Fran Kirby took a knock in training and will miss today's game. Instead, Little and Hemp bolster the attack with an experienced Ellen White up top for Team GB.
A formal breakdown of today's teams: TEAM GB: Roebuck, Bronze, Houghton, Bright, Daly, Walsh, Weir, Stanway, Little, Hemp, White /// CHILE: Endler, Guerrero, Lara, Lopez Opazo, Araya, Urrutia, Aedo, Lopez, Pardo, Zamora, Saez
Chile's starting eleven looks like this..
This is how Team GB are set to line up…
An early kick off in the Soporro Dome marks the start of what has been a heavily anticipated tournament. With no age restrictions for nations, the Olympic women’s football is valued as competitively as the World Cup and this summer’s tournament will showcase some of the world’s finest talents. Chile’s national side take on their first Olympic games in history after what has been an incredibly successful few years for the country. Team GB haven’t featured at an Olympic since they first fielded a team at London 2012, in which they reached the quarter finals. Hege Riise will be looking to taking Britain even further this year.
