Brighton midfielder Inessa Kaagman and the Netherlands will be looking to kick off their Olympic campaign in style this lunchtime (12pm) as they face Zambia at the Miyagi Stadium in Rifu, Japan.

The 25-year-old was Albion's top scorer last season with eight goals in the WSL, as they recorded their highest-ever finish in the WSL of sixth.

Kaagaman has yet to commit her future to Albion despite being offered a new deal back in June, but it looks likely she will stay at the club for another season at least.

But before thinking about her club future Kaagman will be the soul representative for Albion women at the Olympic and will be hoping to help the Netherlands to win gold.

This summer's tournament will be the Netherlands first appearance at the Olympics and head coach Sarina Wiegman’s last as their manager, before she takes the job as England manager.

So, the 51-year-old will be looking to end her five-year tenure with a gold medal and the Netherlands are highly fancied to do so with as 4/1 second favourites behind the USA.

However, they have been drawn in a tough group with Brazil and China in Group F.

Wiegman’s side head into the match off the back of a 7-0 victory over Norway last month and with their and the WSL's all-time record goalscorer Vivienne Miedema in fine form heading into the tournament they will be a real threat to many sides.

The 25-year-old scored 24 goals in 26 games in all competitions for Arsenal last season, with 18 of those coming in the WSL.

But the Dutch side have been dealt a massive blow as their most capped player, Sherida Spitse will miss the tournament after suffering a knee injury in training.

The 31-year-old will be a big miss not just as a leader having made 188 caps, but also as a goal threat having notched 42 goals.

Netherlands face Zambia in their opening game of the tournament this lunchtime, before then facing Brazil on Saturday lunchtime (12pm) and then round of their matches in Group F by facing China on Tuesday lunchtime (12:30pm).
