Day 1: What to watch Friday night, Saturday morning at the Tokyo Olympics

Women's Soccer

The U.S. Women's National Team is back in action with a match against New Zealand at Saitama Stadium. Expect the American women to come back in full force as they try to right the ship from a shutout loss to Sweden just a few days ago. That loss was the U.S. team's first in two and a half years, but they'll look to start a new streak against a squad of Kiwis that struggled against Australia in Group G play during a 2-1 loss on Wednesday.

The rest of Saturday's schedule is loaded with intriguing matchups as the top two teams in each group face off head-to-head.

In Group G, Sweden will be flying high as they head into a matchup with an Australia team led by Sam Kerr, and in Group E, Great Britain can clinch their spot in the knockout round with a win over second-place Japan.

One of the day's biggest matchups, though, will be a Group F showdown between the Netherlands and Brazil. Both teams are coming off monster performances from the opening matchday. Vivianne Miedema scored four goals in the Dutch squad's 10-3 takedown of Zambia, and Marta netted two goals to lead the Brazilians to a big 5-0 win over China.
