Coach Hope Powell is looking forward to seeing what her Great Britain team are made of ahead of Friday night's Olympic preparation friendly with Sweden.

Five days away from their Games-opener with New Zealand in Cardiff, Powell's players are taking part in a Middlesbrough double-header along with their male counterparts in what will also act as a 'send-off' fixture.

"I think it gives us a benchmark of where we are with the squad, an opportunity to have a real good look at players and, playing against Sweden who were medallists at the World Cup, it is a good leveller to see how much we need to do before the first game against New Zealand," she said.
