Hope Powells GB women pulled off a magnificent 1-0 victory against Brazil ensuring a quarter final with Canada on Friday. USA are 5/4 favourites for gold but GB are only just behind them at 7/2 with William Hill having been as long as 20/1 at the start of the tournament. Brazil and Japan are 11/2.
GB have now won all three games and go into the last eight with a real chance of glory. Canada sneaked into the one of the best third place qualification spots and are 13/5 to cause an upset against the hosts. GB are 4/5 for the win. Brazil are 5/4 to beat world champions Japan who are 7/4 in what, on paper looks the tie of the round.
The record attendance for a GB womens football match was broken at Wembley last night and the longer these girls go on the more support they will receive. Hope Powell has them well drilled and they are now well in with a chance for a medal spot at least, said William Hill spokesman Mark Young.
