The 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil officially kick off on Wednesday afternoon, with the women’s soccer tournament taking front and center stage.
In one of the first matches of the tournament, five-time Women’s World Player of the Year Marta is set to lead host nation Brazil against China PR in Group E play. With the home crowd expecting big things from this team throughout the tournament, it will be interesting to see how much energy is in the crowd against a tough opponent.
