Australia come into this game looking to bag the bronze medal after finishing third on the points table with seven points from five games. The Hockeyroos thrashed hosts Great Britain 4-1 in their last encounter, with their forward line in particular putting up an impressive display.

The women from Down Under have momentum on their side and are expected to win this game considering the form they are in.

Despite entering this competition as the lowest ranked side, the United States of America ensured that they will at least have a chance to secure a medal after finishing fourth in the table with five points.

Their last game saw them play out a 1-1 draw against arch-rivals New Zealand and have Kelsey Kolojejchick to thank who scored for the team. Team USA are capable of surprising any team in their day and should not be taken lightly.
