Hope Powell was focused on a South American match-up. "Brazil will be a great game at Wembley, they are always there or thereabouts in major tournaments. Now it is down to our preparations. We have every chance of progressing but we can't take it lightly. We played New Zealand in the World Cup last year and it was a very tough encounter. Cameroon are an unknown quantity."

Powell was also optimistic about the wider reaching impact of the tournament. "This gives us a great opportunity to showcase our sport, we open the Olympics and hopefully we can encourage more females to get into the sport."
