Jill Scott Looking Forward To Olympic Challenge

Everton Ladies 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. They might even have snatched victory had substitute Rachel Yankey's 70th-minute shot not hit the post.

Jill 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.'

'Sweden are always up there with the best and they always give us a good game, but as Team GB, we just wanted to test ourselves against the best and to not lose and get the draw and we did have chances, to be fair.'

'There were a few shooting opportunities that we maybe could have done a bit better with and Rachel Yankey hit the post in the second half, so all in all, it's a positive going forward.'

Team GB will open their Olympic account against New Zealand at the Millennium Stadium on Wednesday.
