Team GB Women's lined up for their official squad photo on Tuesday as the excitement builds towards their opening game at London 2012.
Hope Powell's side are in Cardiff for their first Group E encounter with New Zealand at the Millennium Stadium on Wednesday and were in high spirits as they finalised the preparations for GB Women's debut at an Olympic Games.
The side drew 0-0 with tournament hopefuls Sweden in Middlesbrough on Friday, and will be confident they can have an impact on home soil, but first must overcome an improving New Zealand.
"New Zealand have done a lot of work in the last 12 months," says Coach Hope Powell. "They work really well together as a unit. They have pace, they're aggressive and they run and run ridiculously for 90 minutes.
"In all areas they have tried to improve their game and we expect a tough encounter."
Meanwhile, striker Ellen White believes Great Britain's team spirit will be a big factor.
"I think we have got a fantastic squad," she said. "We have got a great team spirit and everyone is getting on really well, which can only be a good thing."
Great Britain kick off on Wednesday afternoon at 4pm, and the match will be live on BBC1
