WOMEN'S OLYMPIC FOOTBALL
BRAZIL - NORWAY
Early start tomorrow in China. I think it is time for Brazil to step forward and take a big title, Marta and Cristiane are arguably the two best players in the world and at 22 and 23 respectively, should be nearing their peak. They were unlucky to only take silver at the World Cup and winners Germany, look to have regressed. I feel the conditions suit them better and expect Norway, who are a very big side and might labour in what is forecast to be humid , sticky weather, to be seen off with the minimum of fuss. Cristiane showed her well being with a hat-trick in the last group game and that would doubtless have got Marta's competitive juices flowing. I think they will win tomorrow and go on to take the title.
