Coach remains hopeful over 2016

UPBEAT: Hope Powell

TEAM GB'S women's football coach will not turn her back on the side despite their shock elimination.

Hope Powell's side, who lost 2-0 to Canada in the quarter-finals of London 2012 last night, were the first female GB team to ever compete at an Olympics.

Now the coach has said that she would "love" to see Great Britain enter a women's football side at the 2016 Olympic Games in Brazil.

She said: "For myself and the players this has been an incredible experience and, if we get the opportunity again, I would give it the thumbs up.

"I am not a decision-maker but, if it is just the women's team that get the chance to go into the next Olympics, I would take it.

"Our girls have learnt so much from this this tournament and you can only improve from such experiences. I would love GB to be part of it again."
