  • TEAM GB 1-0 CHILE

    21′ Penalty claim for GB. Hemp again sent clear down the left and her cross is blocked.

    It looks like an arm may have been used to divert it back to Endler but the referee isn’t interested.

  • TEAM GB 1-0 CHILE

    20′ IT SHOULD BE TWO!

    Hemp and Little combine superbly well before the winger gets to the by-line.

    She cuts it back to Stanway eight yards out who sees her sidefooted attempted blocked.

  • TEAM GB 1-0 CHILE

    18′ A deep ball in is kept alive down the GB right.

    Bronze stands a clever ball up at the back post for Hemp to attack and nod down.

    It lands to White inside the six-yard box who swipes home from close range with her left foot.

    A deserved lead!

  • GOOOOOOOAAAAAAALLLLLLLL!!!!!!

    ELLIE WHITE DOES GET ON THE SCORESHEET THIS TIME!!

  • TEAM GB 0-0 CHILE

    15′ Little goes over to take and finds compatriot Caroline Weir who heads towards goal from 15 yards but her effort is blocked.

    Walsh is then adjudged to control with her arm on the edge of the box and it’s a Chile free kick.

  • TEAM GB 0-0 CHILE

    14′ First corner of the game as Hemp’s attempted ball in is deflected behind for a corner.

  • TEAM GB 0-0 CHILE

    12′ Stanway’s latest venture forward ends in a cross that is too deep for those in the middle and it drifts harmlessly for a goal kick.

  • TEAM GB 0-0 CHILE

    10′ Stanway again causing havoc down the right before firing low and hard across the keeper.

    Endler parries out to White following in and she rolls it into an empty net.

    The flag was up straight away from the assistant and it was the right call.

  • TEAM GB 0-0 CHILE

    WHITE HAS IT IN THE NET!

    BUT SHE’S FLAGGED FOR OFFSIDE!!

  • TEAM GB 0-0 CHILE

    9′ Guerrero in a spot of trouble as she moves wide to clear ahead of White for a free kick.

    She is caught late accidentally and is down in some pain but seems fine to continue.

  • TEAM GB 0-0 CHILE

    7′ Not great defending from the free kick as a long ball into the middle isn’t dealt with by the five GB shirts nearest to it.

    It’s partially headed clear but only as far as Urrutia who swipes it well wide from 10 yards.

  • TEAM GB 0-0 CHILE

    6′ Another clipped ball in by Weir, this one headed away to safety.

    Foul by Hemp this time on Lopez on halfway and it’s a breather for their defence.

  • TEAM GB 0-0 CHILE

    5′ Another chance for GB here as Hemp shows exceptional pace down the light before she is scythed down by Lopez.

    Free kick, a few yards from the by-line on the left of the area.

  • TEAM GB 0-0 CHILE

    4′ CHANCE!

    Excellent interplay from Weir and White to free Bronze down the right. Her ball in is missed by White with an attempted overhead kick by White and Weir comes in behind to prod towards goal but it’s straight at Endler.

  • TEAM GB 0-0 CHILE

    3′ Stanway gets herself down the right and looks for an early ball into the area.

    Saez gets a nick to it and the deflection kindly rolls through to Endler in goal.

  • TEAM GB 0-0 CHILE

    2′ Caroline Weir floats it into the middle but Endler is alive to it and comes out to catch unchallenged.

  • TEAM GB 0-0 CHILE

    1′ Ellen White wiped out on the left wing from a direct ball played up to her.

    Free kick early for GB.

  • PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!!!

    Team GB is up and running at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics!

  • HERE WE GO….

    Team GB take the knee and their Chilean opponents follow suit!

    Another huge moment in the fight against discrimination.

  • ANTHEM TIME

    Caroline Weir amongst those to proudly belt out God Save The Queen, after revealing yesterday she wasn’t sure if she would.

    An emotional rendition from their Chilean counterparts also!

    33-year-old Carla Guerrero in tears!

  • HERE THEY COME!

    Christiane Endler and Steph Houghton lead their sides out onto the park!

  • FINAL PREP

    As the two sides warm up, the final touches have been added to this excellent setting.

  • TAKE ANOTHER STEPH

    Skipper for the opening game Steph Houghton reckons the importance of success on the field is far greater than just for the players.

    She was part of the 2012 squad and notices the impact that had on girls taking up the sport and aiming to play at a high level.

    For women’s football in our country it’s another chance to grow our game and another chance to get out there and be in the media so we know we’ve got to go and do as well as we possibly can, we’ve got to have confidence and belief and just do the things that we’ve been doing not just in this tournament but the season prior to that as well.
