Team GB aim to build on winning start

History-maker Steph Houghton insists there is more to come from Team GB after they opened their Olympic football campaign with a 1-0 win over New Zealand in Cardiff.

Arsenal full-back Houghton struck the opening goal of the Games with a curling right-footed free-kick after 65 minutes, becoming the first player to score for the Team GB women's side. The win, secured after an understandably nervous start given the focus on the fixture, means Hope Powell's side have one foot in the last eight of the competition.

The slender margin of victory was hardly a fair reflection of a game that GB dominated while failing to make the most of their chances, with Anita Asante and Kim Little among those who failed to finish presentable chances.
