GB's success against the UAE was largely reliant on positive football. The periods where they dominated coincided with the phases when they got men forward and passed confidently and aggressively.
Stuart Pearce will need to ensure that Britain do the same tonight, and that must start with his tactical choices.
Pearce got it spot on against the UAE, with regards to his formation, starters and substitutions. The inclusion of Ramsey gave GB a greater deal of technical finesse on the right wing, whilst the introduction of Daniel Sturridge and Scott Sinclair, and the technical reorganisation this initiated, were vital in tipping the game in GB's favour.
If Pearce can make the same bold choices against a Uruguayan side that certainly has the potential to be dangerous going forward, not only will the Millennium Stadium play host to an exciting game, but also it will be one in which GB have an excellent chance of getting a result.
The tactics do not have to be complicated, merely attacking. In Neil Taylor and Micah Richards, or Ryan Bertrand if Richards is required in central defence, GB have wing-backs who will look to get forward and play the game inside Uruguay's half.
There is a reason for you having heard "the best form of defence is attack" before; it is often true. By getting on the front foot and forcing Uruguay to track back, they will be limiting the amount of chances the 1924 and 1928 Olympic champions can create whilst simultaneously increasing their chances of scoring.
Uruguay will undoubtedly look to play attacking football, but the GB squad contains attacking players more than good enough to go blow for blow with the Uruguayans. Do that and not only will Uruguay be thrown off their game, but also they will be exposed defensively.
