Team GBs women football match opened the Olympics yesterday with a one nil victory over New Zealand at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.

The match was the first event of the games and came two days before the opening ceremony due this Friday.

Team GB member Steph Houghton scored the only goal of the game with a 25 yard free kick.

Team mate Sue Smith said To have the confidence to strike the ball like that was great.

The goalkeeper had no chance.

It was a fantastic strike.

London 2012 reported that the first football matches started before the opening ceremony so that all the games could be fitted in before the Olympics finished.

Team GB will hope to enjoy a similar experience when they take on Cameroon at the same venue in Cardiff on Thursday.
