Midfielder Stephanie Houghton has played wonderfully for Great Britain, scoring a goal in each game played. British team captain Casey Stone managed to quickly open up the scoring in the team's last game against Cameroon. Houghton and Stone now look to lead their team against a Brazilian side that has won silver medals in the two previous Olympics.

Christiane sealed the deal with against a defensive minded New Zealand, managing to score the only goal of the game. Marta proved to be a valuable offensive asset after scoring twice in a match where Brazil destroyed Cameroon 5-0.
