UK and Canada took the automatic knockout places from group E, with Netherlands and Brazil automatically qualifies from Group F and Sweden and USA comes from group G.

There were two more quarter-final spots as the top two third-placed teams, that was Australia and hosts Japanese. Zambia were the third placed side to miss, while Chile, China and New Zealand were knocked out by finishing bottom in their respective groups.

All four quarter-final bands will be played on Friday, July 30.

The race of promises to be that between the Netherlands and the United States. The Dutch scored a ridiculous number of goals in the group stage – 21 in three games – and the Americans have struggled with their own usual standards and expectations before the tournament.

Each semi-final is played on Monday, August 2, where the two winning sides compete for the gold medal match at Japan National Stadium on Friday, August 6. The two losing semifinalists will fight for the bronze 24 hours earlier on Thursday 5 August.

It is likely that the Netherlands could eliminate a clearly vulnerable and subordinate US team in the quarterfinals and deny the Americans a medal for the other consecutive games.

The Dutch would also like to beat either Canada or Brazil in the semis.

On the other side of the bar, Sweden looks like a likely challenger to continue after such an impressive group game and it is becoming increasingly difficult to see anyone beat them to gold.

Great Britain could make the semi-final and maybe land a bronze medal.

Gold: Sweden

Silver: Netherlands

Bronze: UK
