WOMEN’S FOOTBALL – GB 3 GERMANY 1
GB claimed its first-ever football medal as they claimed a hard earned 3-1 victory over Germany.

Brad Solomons’ troops got off to the perfect start when the impressive Samantha Miller forced the Germans to concede a penalty. Sara Lyons stepped up to blast the spot-kick into the roof of the net inside the opening two minutes.

Miller doubled the lead with a cross-shot that sailed into the far corner. Germany pulled one back but supersub Michaela Green sealed the silver with GB's third.

GB manager Brad Solomon told JC Sport: "I have been involved in Jewish women’s football for 14 years and I’ve never felt so proud about a group of players that we not my family."
