The Olympic Football Tournament began with a confrontation between Great Britain and Chile. The team from the homeland of football turned out to be better, winning 2-0.

Later, the bid was made by the Brazilians, who defeated the Chinese team 5-0. This match will be remembered for the wonderful match of Marta, who is already considered the best football player in the world six times. The famous player scored two goals.

Thus, Marta became the first player (and no one can boast of this among men) to score a goal in the fifth games in a row.

The confrontation between Sweden and the United States ended in a surprise. The United States team lost for the first time in 44 games! Interestingly, during the previous Olympics, it was also the Swedes who managed to defeat the United States.

The meeting between Zambia and the Netherlands also caused a lot of emotion. The Europeans won this meeting 10-3 after four goals from Vivian Miedema. Barbara Banda scored all three goals for Zambia.
