Team GB's Alex Scott believes Friday's Olympic quarter final with Canada will see the side presented with a different type of challenge to overcome, if they want to reach the last four of the competition.
The Arsenal full-back was in impressive form as Hope Powell's squad topped their group stage earlier this week with a stunning victory against Olympic favourites Brazil at Wembley, but with the Canadians now lying in wait at Coventry and a place in the last four at stake, Scott feels an different approach to the game needs to be made.
"Canada pose such a different threat," she said. "Brazil are all silky skills and flair, whereas Canada will be organised and structured.
"It is about how we are going to break a team like that down."
The 27-year-old is one of the most experienced players in the GB squad, having played 90 times for England as well as enjoying a successful club career with Arsenal and the Boston Breakers in the USA, so she has seen a lot in her career to date.
But the exposure and attention the squad have received since Tuesday night's occasion at Wembley, with over 70,000 in attendance and a large television audience, is something that everyone in the group had been hoping to achieve.
"We came into this tournament wanting to create a legacy for women's football, to get coverage and attention and we have had just that," she added.
"I have been reading some of the tweets and you have got people like Rio Ferdinand tweeting about us. It has been long time coming but now we are starting to show there is a place for women's football."
One player that Scott believes GB will have to keep an extra close eye on during Friday's match is Canadian striker Christine Sinclair, who is seen as one of the best players on the planet and someone Scott has seen at close quarters during her time in the USA.
"Sinclair is a great player, a real poacher, we're going to have to watch her," she revealed.
"She has so much class and composure and is a real danger."
