90+4—FULLTIME! It finishes GB 1-1 Senegal, and you'd probably say that was a fair result. That said, Bellamy should DEFINITELY have had a penalty. Up next for Team GB are UAE, while Senegal will face Uruguay. Thanks for joining me and be sure to read our reams of reaction content as it floods into the site this evening and tomorrow morning!
90+3'—Mane plays in Konate, but his shot on the angle is wide.
89'—Now it's Senegal with a chance. Mane heads wide from a great position. They'll be FOUR ADDED MINUTES.
88'—SO CLOSE FOR GB!—Ramsey breaks down the left and his cross is met sweetly by Sordell. Fine strike, but it crashes against the bar.
84'—Mane with the inch-perfect pass to set up Konate. GB's two central defender were both slow to get back from an attacking corner and caught out there.
82'—GOAL SENEGAL! Senegal break with pace and Konate provides a cool finish over Butland to bring them level. It's been coming.
79'—SUBSTITUTION: Bellamy gets a decent ovation as he's replaced by Jack Cork. The Liverpool man has provided GB's biggest threat going forward tonight.
76'—GB are far from home and dry here. Senegal still threatening and will surely get at least one good chance before the final whistle.
74'—As a Liverpool player Bellamy not getting as much sympathy from the Old Trafford crowd as he might expect. Just to reiterate though, that was an horrific tackle.

70'—DRAMA! Bellamy is absolutely obliterated by a crunching tackle from Ciss just inside the box. CLEAR, BLATANT PENALTY... but nothing given. Unbelievable. Team GB players swarm in, but are soon pulled away and calmed down.
69'—Bellamy released on the right. His lofted cross leaves Sordell in a 1-vs-6 battle of the giants however and goalkeeper Mane collects comfortably for Senegal.
67'—Ramsey with a classy ball through to release Sordell, but the striker is JUST OFFSIDE. Great vision from Ramsey.

65'—Chance for GB. Rose's cross hits the back post and Bellamy volleys on the stretch. His contact is weak.
63'—SUBSTITUTION: Arsenal's Aaron Ramsey replaces Allen for Team GB, who is noticeably limping as he leaves the field.
61'—Rose over-hits a pass forward. Meanwhile, Allen is struggling and calling to the bench to be replaced. GB need some fresh impetus here.
59'—Taylor links well with Bellamy on the right, but GB can't get a cross over. Still not much of an atmosphere to report inside Old Trafford. Very quiet.
55'—Zargo tries to blast one on a diagonal angle from the corner of the box. Butland stands tall, but the ball sails over his head. Soon after Ciss has a go and this time Butland needs to parry the ball away.
53'—All getting a little bit feisty now. Tackles flying in from the Senegalese and we can surely expect several more yellows before the evening is out.
48'—Very soft yellow card for Bellamy early on in the second half. Soon after Balde tests Butland with a low drive to the goalkeeper's left. Butland makes a sharp save.
46'—We're away with the second half and Team GB have made a change at the break. Sordell has replaced Sturridge, who as we know has been struggling with viral meningitis recently.
45'—HALFTIME! Team GB go into the break with a deserved 1-0 lead, through Bellamy's clinical strike on 20 minutes. Much to improve on, but Pearce's team have a clean sheet and the advantage. What more could you ask for? (don't ask Brazil).
44'—Still a muted atmosphere inside Old Trafford. Not much in the way of excitement so far.
42'—SUBSTITUTION: Senegal forced into a change. Gueye goes off injured and in his place comes Kouyate.
