This week Alex Scott revels in victory over Cameroon and looks ahead to a Brazil showdown that could see a record-breaking crowd pack into Wembley...
Every now and then you play in a match that reminds you why you became a footballer. Tomorrow's game against Brazil is one such occasion.
Over 70,000 fans are expected - unheard of for a women's match in this country - and, if we get a few more than that, we could break the record for the highest ever attendance for a women's Olympic football match.
This is a game that we've been looking forward to ever since the draw was announced. It's a real glamour tie and, with Brazil and us neck and neck in Group E and with neither side having conceded a goal yet, something's got to give.
Sure, we've both qualified for the quarter-finals, but we want the win - and not just because it could give us a supposedly "easier" match in the next round.
For us, we want to do well for the fans and to make the most of the occasion.
Those factors will spur us on, of course, but we're also professionals who want victory in every match regardless of whether it's in the Olympics or a friendly.
Are Brazil favourites? I don't really think in those terms.
We believe in ourselves wholeheartedly, we know what we're capable of and we know we can get something from this game.
We certainly don't feel intimidated by them. Though none of us have ever faced Brazil before, many of us have played in the Women's Professional Soccer league in the US where we came up against most of these players at some stage, so it doesn't faze me and I think that's the case for the rest of the girls.
After all, you dream of playing games like this. It's not a matter of being scared - it's more a case of embracing the moment and making sure it doesn't pass you by.
Still, they are a quality team and have a legend in Marta, who won the Fifa World Player of the Year award five times in a row. The obvious question is - how do you beat them?
Focus is crucial. We've been defensively very solid in our wins over New Zealand and Cameroon, but if you switch off for a split second against Brazil they'll punish you.
Ball retention is also important. We gave it away a bit against New Zealand, but improved a lot in Saturday's 3-0 win over Cameroon.
No disrespect to those teams though, but Brazil are on another level. If you give the ball away cheaply, you might not get it back for a long time, so we need to take care when we have it.
These are the kinds of matches we relish though and everyone in the camp is buzzing.
The one downer on what's been a great few days is the injury to defender and my room-mate Ifeoma Dieke. She's had to leave the squad after tearing her anterior cruciate ligament and has been replaced by Dunia Susi.
She's understandably gutted. She reads the game so well and we're really going to miss that experience in the team.
We left Cardiff on Sunday for the Olympic Park in London, where we'll be staying in the Olympic village. The vibe in the team has been really good.
We're having a lot of fun playing together as I am sure everyone can see from the way we were celebrating our goals on Saturday.
The shoulder-shake dancing that Eni Aluko, Jill Scott and Kelly Smith did after the second goal was something we'd practised before.
I would have got involved myself and shown off some of my own dance moves, but I was down the other end of the pitch!
There'll be more to come though, not least because Karen Bardsley and I have been making a video of the team from the last few weeks at the camp.
We got the idea from the US swimming team, who made a video that went viral on YouTube. We're going to try to get it out there before the quarter-final, so watch this space!
