With both sides still hoping to come out on the top of Group A, Team Great Britain and Uruguay will face off in Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium, and these two sides have a very genuine chance of coming out of London 2012 with Olympic gold.
Each with two gold football medals to their name, both Uruguay and Team GB are looking to live up to past expectations in the Summer Games. But, only one can come out on top in this fixture, with Senegal waiting to pounce on the group’s second spot should either lose.
Stuart Pearce’s Britons need only snatch a draw to see them through to the tournament’s quarter-finals, but Uruguay’s need for the three points could make for a thrilling encounter this evening.
Uruguay can also go through with just one point, but they would need UAE to do them a serious favour against Senegal, something which is far from assured of happening.
While football has and always will revolve around team efforts, the sport can often whittle down to individual struggles between opposing players that affect their side’s dynamic enough to decide a tie.
With that in mind, here are the top five battles you can expect to see on Wednesday that could see who ultimately wins Olympic gold this year.
