Episode notes

The OneFootball podcast returns once again to take a look at women’s football.

This week Angelina Kelly is joined by Give Me Sport Women's Nancy Gillen and Manchester United Women's Supporters Club founder Natalie Burrell.

As we head into the final stages of the women's football tournament at the Olympic Games, the panel discuss Tokyo 2020 so far, from Team GB and where the blame lies after they crashed out in the quarter-finals to Australia, to the impressive form of Zambia's Barbra Banda and the Netherlands' Vivianne Miedema.

The panel also discuss the USA as they face Australia in the battle for the bronze medal, and what this means for the team as since the women's Olympic football event was introduced in 1996, the side have now failed to reach the final in successive Games.

Meanwhile as Canada and Sweden prepare to face each other in the final, the panel take a look at their journeys so far along with some predictions for the fixture.

And this week Angelina also speaks to Orlando Pride's latest signing, former Atlético Madrid defender Kylie Strom on her move back to the USA, her hopes for this season and her excitement to be playing alongside one of the greatest footballers in the world, Marta.
