    Great Britain v New Zealand will be shown live on BBC1 from 15:30, and BBC3 will be showing the second half of Cameroon v Brazil live from around 19:45. All other coverage will be available on the BBC 'red button'.

    It's taken 65 minutes of good pressure, but Great Britain are 1-0 up! Great goal, scored by Steph Houghton.

    Should have been 1-1 there...

    2-2 France v. the USA, France were 2-0 up.

    The USA eventually win 4-2.

    First controversy of the Games, the ladies football match between North Korea and Colombia has failed to start on time, allegedly because the screens at Hampden put the South Korean flag up beside the pictures of the North Korean team, and they are apparently mortally insulted.

    OMG I can hardly believe that - hugely embarrassing if it's true!

    Yep, just seen confirmation on BBC. As the teams we being introduced, the South Korean flag was displayed on the big screens in the stadium. Apparently the North Korean team coach ordered his team off the pitch in protest, and they turnd to the dressing room. The kick-off has been re-scheduled for 21:00 and I believe the teams are now coming back out.

    I guess, in theory, the Koreans could have been penalised for refusing to start the match - there must be rules in that respect - but it looks like they've handled the situation sensibly - it would have been even worse I think if, for example, they had been disqualified for leaving the pitch.
