Netherlands v USA: Olympics women’s football quarter-final into extra-time – live!

Here’s a look at today’s teams. USA coach Vlatko Andonovski makes five changes from the lineup that faced Australia on Tuesday in the final group-stage match: Abby Dahlkemper for Tierna Davidson in the back, Lindsey Horan for Rose Lavelle in the midfield, and a new forward line with Tobin Heath, Carli Lloyd and Lynn Williams replacing Megan Rapinoe, Alex Morgan and Christen Press.

It’s the fourth different lineup deployed by Andonovski in four matches at the Olympics.
