The U.S. women’s national team has its Group G destiny in its own hands and at its feet.

After back from a disappointing opening loss to Sweden to beat New Zealand in resounding fashion in its second match at the Tokyo Olympics, it can secure seecond place in the group with a win over Australia Tuesday.

The teams, both 1-1-0 and with three points each, will square off at 4 a.m. ET at Ibaraki Kashima Stadium in Kashima, Japan. The match will be broadcast in the United States on the USA Network and Telemundo with streaming coverage also provided at NBCOlympics.com and through the Telemundo Deportes App. Replays will be available later that day at 10 a.m. ET and 6 p.m. ET on the USA Network and again at 11:45 p.m. ET on NBCSN.

With Australia falling to Sweden, 4-2, in its second match, that sets the stage for the winner of the USA-Australia to finish second in Group G. A draw would give second place to the USA. The Americans, whp have a superior goal difference over Australia (plus-2 vs. minus-1) needs a win or a tie to punch its ticket to the knockout rounds. The top two finishers in each group and the two best third-place teams advance to the quarterfinals. Should teams be level on points and the end of group play, the first tiebreaker is superior goal difference followed by total goals scored.

The quarterfinals begin Friday, July 30. The winner of Group G will face the third-place finisher from Group E or F at 6 a.m. ET in Saitama while the second-place team in the will face the winner of Group F at 7 a.m. ET at International Stadium Yokohama in Kanagawa. Should a third-place team from Group G go through to the knockout round, it will face the winner of Group E in Kashima at 5 a.m. ET. Coverage is available for all matches through NBCOlympics.com.
