The women’s Olympic soccer final between Sweden and Canada has been moved to a later kickoff to avoid the intense midday heat, Sweden’s FA said in a statement on Thursday.

The game had been due to kick off at 11 a.m. on Friday but both teams complained because of the high temperatures expected in Tokyo. It will now be played at 9 p.m. at Yokohama’s International Stadium.
