Great Britain's Olympic football team carry high hopes for a home gold medal at the London Games.

Captained by Ryan Giggs, Stuart Pearce's squad boasts plenty of experience at the highest level and should benefit from partisan support in all their matches.

Here's their schedule for the group stages:

Team GB vs. Senegal, Old Trafford, July 26

Team GB vs. United Arab Emirates, Wembley, July 29

Team GB vs. Uruguay, Millennium Stadium, August 1

Should Pearce's men make it through Group A, they'll face a quarterfinal meeting with one of teams to progress from Group B—to come from Mexico, Korea Republic, Gabon and Switzerland.

From there you'd expect to see Spain and Brazil factor from the other half of the draw, so it won't be easy to come out on top. If Team GB are to stand a chance of winning gold, here are six men who need to perform.
