Olympic Football: Sweden Win Again, Zambia Draw 4-4 With China At Tokyo 2020

Sweden put on another impressive display to defeat Australia in the women’s football competition at Tokyo 2020, despite Sam Kerr scoring twice.

Chelsea striker Kerr also had a penalty saved, denying her a hat-trick, in the 4-2 defeat by Sweden, who beat the United States in their opener.

Meanwhile, Zambia captain Barbra Banda scored a second successive hat-trick as the African nation drew 4-4 with China.

Wang Shuang scored all four for China, who had Li Qingtong sent off.

Kerr’s goals for Australia meant she became the highest scorer for the Matildas in Olympic Games history.

But Sweden’s second victory moved them top of their group, booking their place in the knockout stages with a game to spare as strong contenders to win gold.
