Zambia were beaten 1-0 by Brazil in their third group match on Tuesday 27 July. The only goal scored by Andressa Alves (19th) was enough to defeat the Coopers Queens. Zambia will therefore not see the quarter-finals. They leave the Tokyo Olympic football tournament after two defeats.
They lost to the Netherlands (10-3) and then drew with China (4-4). Zambia returned from Tokyo with their young captain Barbra Banda, who scored six goals in three matches.
