There has been quite a lot written over the last few days on the subject of the Olympic Games and its various interactions with association football. A lot of this in particular the hand- wringing chip wrapper fodder about how the behaviour of competitors over last couple of weeks has somehow 'shamed' our national game but there is perhaps a grain of a point to be made about the different feeling that Olympic football has had about it in comparison with the standard, bread and butter that we usually imbibe to the point of intoxication.

Of course they did. How could they do anything else? If the Olympic football tournament wasn't a "proper" international football tournament already, it became one after what someone will surely call Team GB's "ignominious quarter-final exit on penalties" on Saturday night. Nevertheless, those questioning the legitimacy of Olympic football might point to Team GB's failings on a night when everybody else in Britain seemed to win an Olympic medal of some description.

By the time Hope Powell's Team GB got any cohesion into their game against Canada, they were already a (terrific) goal down and the initiative had flown across the Atlantic, never to return.It was a sad, slightly flat way for Team GB's otherwise impressive campaign to end, tempered by the fact that the Canadians ended it with an excellent display.

Pearce's eyesight must be a good deal better than mine, but however hard it was to watch as a football match, Britain's win – of both match and group – was worthy and deserved.
