Scott positive after draw

Published Add your comment

Midfielder Jill Scott emerged from Team GB's final warm-up football game against Sweden confident there is more to come before their Olympic campaign gets under way.

Hope Powell's side drew 0-0 with the Swedes, who finished third at last summer's World Cup finals in Germany, at Middlesbrough Riverside stadium, and arguably shaded a tight affair. Indeed, they might have snatched victory had substitute Rachel Yankey's 70th-minute shot crept inside the post rather than crashed back off it.

Scott said: "We have been together now for about 10, 11 days and we are really excited. It's good that we have played and we have got a bit of momentum. Unfortunately, we couldn't get the win, but we can take this performance into our game against New Zealand, analyse it and see where we can do better."
