Women's footballers bow out

Published Add your comment

Great Britain's women's football team were unable to hitch themselves to the back of a bicycle-led gold rush as they crashed out of the Olympics in Coventry after losing 2-0 to Canada.

After such electrifying group stage performances, Hope Powell's team never got to grips with their quarter-final as Canada secured a deserved win and a trip to Old Trafford to meet the United States on Monday. Jonelle Filingo and Christine Sinclair got the first-half goals and, in truth, it could have been more.

It means that if Britain is to register its first Olympic football medal since 1912, Stuart Pearce's men's team, who face South Korea tomorrow, will have to do it.
