Remember, it’s Great Britain, not England that we should be getting behind in the football right now.
That’s because the Olympics are on so everyone in the land is to get behind Team GB over the next few weeks.
The women’s football team may be England heavy but their 2-0 win in their Olympics opener against Chile showed it’s very much a team effort among all the home nations.
Ellen White’s double sealed the victory but Chelsea boss Emma Hayes issued special praise to Scottish midfield duo Kim Little and Caroline Weir.
“I thought the performance was solid,” Hayes told talkSPORT. “They started brightly, good energy, good intensity. I felt Great Britain looked strong in the midfield.
“The two Scottish girls really improved Great Britain and I think for that reason they’re contenders.
“Kim Little is a wonderful football player and Caroline Weir equally brings a lot to that team so let’s hope they progress as far as they can.”
The women’s tournament got off to a shock start as the USA were handed a 3-0 humbling by Sweden.
But this result didn’t surprise Hayes, who fired a warning to the world champions.
“I wasn’t surprised Sweden won,” Hayes added. “I think America is fast realising that European leagues are ready to surpass them. I think it’s important for the women’s game that someone else wins the Olympics.
“Maybe Sweden will do that. Sweden or Great Britain potentially.”
