Olympics football: Team GB women attract new supporters

BBC: Let's start with a little perspective.

Great Britain coach Hope Powell was a member of the England team the first time they played Canada, back in Sweden in 1995. The crowd that day was 665.

Powell was in charge of the England side the last time they played Canada, in last year's Cyprus Cup. The attendance… a mere 30.

The story is too old to be commented.
