Britain's women curlers play the USA at 1800 GMT on Monday in a match they must win to have any chance of qualifying for the semi-finals.

2. Switzerland P8 W6 L2 Q
2. Norway P8 W6 L2 Q
4. Canada P8 W5 L3
5. Russia P8 W4 L4

Japan and Russia could also join the teams on five victories if they both win their last matches after beating Italy and Sweden respectively on Monday.

The Japanese play Switzerland, while Russia take on Norway at 1800 GMT.

Sweden and Switzerland had already qualified for the last four with one game left.
