Brazil, Britain lose in women's Olympic football

Yahoo: Brazil failed in yet another attempt to win a major women's football title, and Britain came up short in perhaps the only chance it will ever get.

The United States and Japan, though, are moving ever closer to another final showdown.

World champion Japan ousted Brazil 2-0 in the quarterfinals of the London Olympics on Friday despite getting largely outplayed, while the U.S. ousted New Zealand by the same score.

The story is too old to be commented.
