The United States will open the Olympics against France in group play. France ended the United States' 58-game winning streak at the 2019 World Cup.

"It's exciting to learn more about the Olympic schedule and who our preliminary-round opponents will be in Tokyo," Team USA coach Gregg Popovich said in a statement. "The three Olympic preliminary groups appear to be well balanced, and there are a good number of teams who have legitimate shots at the gold."

Iran and the team that wins the qualifying tournament for the final spot in the games will be in the group as well.
