TEAM GB women’s Olympic football coach Hope Powell has thanked the Welsh fans for cheering her team on to the quarter-finals.

Powell’s side cruised to a 3-0 win over Cameroon in their second match at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium on Saturday.

They now move on to play Brazil at Wembley tomorrow but are guaranteed a place in the last eight whatever the result after two wins from two games.

"The fans have been brilliant, really welcoming," said Powell. "I walked around the city a bit undercover and people are just really embracing it (Team GB football) and that is really special so thank you to the people of Wales.

"We’re out of the group now and that was the first challenge but we want to finish top of the group," she added.

"Playing Brazil at Wembley in front of 70,000 will be a fantastic experience.

"They are a great side but we’re striving to win and the game plan has worked in the first two games. We’re going to give it a go."

The opening goal on Saturday was a scrappy affair as a free kick by Karen Carney from the left flank was missed by everyone apart from captain Casey Stoney, who tapped in at the far post.

But the second was a work of art as Kelly Smith opened up the Cameroon defence with a neat through ball to Kim Little and the Scot cleverly back-heeled inside for Jill Scott to slot home.

Little almost added a third goal five minutes before the break but she was denied by Cameroon goalkeeper Annette Ngo Ndom, having been put through by Kelly Smith.

And Little then saw her header pushed onto the post as Britain threatened to run riot.

Anita Asante had an effort headed off the line by her opposite number, Bibi Medoua, shortly after the break and then had to be substituted after taking a boot in the face.

Ifeoma Dieke was also forced off with a nasty-looking knee injury and must be a doubt to face Brazil.

Star performer Little again went close 10 minutes from the end as her vicious drive was parried by Ngo Ndom and just avoided Eniola Aluko.

But the third goal finally came a minute later as Little teed up Steph Houghton on the edge of the box and the goal hero against New Zealand got her second of the tournament with a right-foot thunderbolt.

Cameroon lost 5-0 to Brazil in their first match in Cardiff but coach Carl Enow believes Team GB are the better side.

He said: "They played far better than Brazil. We suffered more than we did against Brazil. I think they have a good squad and I hope they make Britain proud. I would not be surprised if they went all the way to the final against the United States of America."
