Atmosphere was electric - Hope
 Women's Football News 1 Aug 2012
 
Team GB manager Hope Powell and her team are still coming to terms with the impact from their 1-0 victory over Brazil on Tuesday night. 
 
Records were smashed by the crowd and the TV audience. An incredible 70,584 crowd saw the performance live at Wembley which beat the biggest crowd for a women's match of 53,000 who watched Dick Kerrs v St Helens ladies at Goodison Park in 1920. A record TV audience peaked at 3.892 million on BBC 3 and BBC Olympic 4.
 
Fans witnessed a confident, tactical and skilful performance by a team clearly relishing their time in the limelight. None more so than their coach Hope Powell who knows what this can do for the women's game: "The atmosphere was electric and we got off to a great start," said Hope. "We spoke about it beforehand, about keeping the momentum going.
 
"Personally, I wish I could thank every one of the supporters. We're really trying to leave a really positive legacy, participation, raise awareness, raise the platform for women's football. Tonight we partly achieved some of that."
 
Steph Houghton scored the game's only goal, becoming the first female international to score at Wembley, and taking her tally to three in three matches - not bad for a left-back!. "It's unbelievable and amazing," she said. "To play in front of more than 70,000 people, you couldn't dream of a better day."
 
Full back and Londoner Alex Scott also enjoyed the experience; "Did that just really happen?" joked the 27-year-old. "But you know what, we could still be out there playing now because that is how confident we looked about getting the win.
 
"Everyone was thinking that Brazil were going to beat us but we can take belief from that result and we think we can beat anyone in this tournament."
