While the United Arab Emirates will provide a fierce resistance against Uruguay in the opening match of the 2012 London Olympic Games men’s football branch. United Arab Emirates are optimistic to reach the first point and qualified for the quarterfinals.
Great Britain Ol. – Senegal Ol.
Great Britain start their title chase at theb2012 London Olympics by taking on Senegal at Old Trafford and this will be anything but an easy game for the hosts.
Team GB automatically qualified for the Men’s Football Tournament at the 2012 Olympics, which may not prove to be such a good thing as boss Stuart Pearce had just a couple of weeks to work with his squad unlike most other coaches.
The former Manchester City boss caused a lot of controversy by leaving David Beckham out of the squad as he decided to allocate three over-age places to Ryan Giggs, who has been appointed captain, Craig Bellamy and Micah Richards.
Boss Stuart Pearce is likely to field a similar line-up to that which started the Brazil game, with Daniel Sturridge set to start after recovering from illness.
Probable starting line-up (4-3-3): Butland – Richards, Tomkins, Taylor, Bertrand – Ramsey, Cleverley, Allen – Bellamy, Sturridge, Giggs.
Making their first ever appearances at the Men’s Olympic Football tournament, Senegal will have something to prove, even if they have been placed in a very difficult group.
The Teranga Lions were always going to have a tough task against the likes of Great Britain and Uruguay, but the situation got even worse when the national team chiefs failed to persuade Newcastle stars Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse to join the squad.
Nevertheless, even without the two strikers, Senegal boast a pretty good squad, with Momo Diame, Papa Gueye and Ibrahima Balde the most notable players in the side.
The Teranga Lions may not be favourites in their first match at the London Olympics, but they certainly have enough attacking potential to hurt their opponents..
Key striker Dame N’Doye was forced to withdraw after his club FC Copenhagen refused to give him permission to play, with Kalidou Coulibaly Yero called as a replacement. Defender Victor Bindia is doubtful through injury.
Probable starting line-up (4-3-3): O. Mane – Bindia, Ba, P. Gueye, Souare – Kouyate, Diame, I. Gueye – Balde, S. Mane, M. Gueye.
