Wednesday evening’s game at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff sees Great Britain face Uruguay in the last of the final round of group games.
Stuart Pearce’s side will guarantee qualification for the quarter finals if they avoid defeat, whilst only victory will do for the South Americans unless United Arab Emirates record victory against Senegal, in which case a point will be good enough.
With Spain already out of the tournament, Great Britain are now second favourites to win gold, with most bookmakers offering a price of 9.0 (8/1).
After being denied all three points in their opening match following a late equaliser by Senegal, Great Britain were impressive in their 3-1 victory over UAE on Sunday.
Captain Ryan Giggs opened the scoring to give Team GB a first half lead before Rasheed Elisa drew UAE level on the hour mark.
Substitute Scott Sinclair scored with his first touch before Daniel Sturridge made sure of the three points with a superb chip with fifteen minutes left on the clock.
Probable starting line-up (4-4-2): Butland – Bertrand, Richards, Caulker, Taylor – Allen, Ramsey, Giggs, Cleverly – Bellamy, Sturridge.
Uruguay did enough to get all three points in Group A’s opening game against UAE last Thursday, before their shock defeat to Senegal three days later left them with a mountain to climb.
Uruguay had the majority of the chances on Sunday, and even had a man advantage for the majority of the game following Abdoulaye Ba’s red card. However, two more goals for forward Moussa Kanate gave the African side the points.
Probable starting line-up (4-3-3): Campana –Aguirregaray, Rolin, Coates, Albin – Rodriguez, Arevalo, Lodeiro – Ramirez, Cavani, Suarez.
