Team GB heroine Steph Houghton was on cloud nine after sending Great Britain to the top of Group E following an historic 1-0 victory over Brazil at Wembley in front of a record crowd for a women's game.
The Arsenal star said: "The whole day has just been fantastic.
"It's unbelievable and amazing. To play in front of more than 70,000 people, you couldn't dream of a better day.
"There was no pressure on us because we knew we had qualified for the quarter-finals already. But now we are looking forward to Friday against Canada and we will just try to recover and then focus on that match."
Houghton scored the winner in the first half, her third goal in three GB games, and added: "It came from a corner and I just gambled on the ball being played through. I thought the goalkeeper would get there first, but I just got it past her and then hit it as fast as I could."
