Great Britain Preview
Without a doubt, Team GB has been the most highlycontroversial team in the tournament to date. Great Britain’s entry into the competition has numerous issues clinging to it. Ever since it was decided that Great Britain will be entering a team in the football competition, there have been rumours of protest from the football clubs of the home nations of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. These factors mostly lie on the issue of the independence of the clubs in participating in future championships as separate entities.
However, the majority of the players from the three Home Nations have from the very beginning displayed great enthusiasm in playing for Team GB., Ryan Giggs has been chosen as the captain of the team at the age of 38.His Welsh compatriot Craig Bellamy, a strong forward, is the third over-aged player in the squad but the rest of the players are promising youngsters such as Aaron Ramsey, Tom Cleverley, and Daniel Sturridge.
It is much too early at this stage to say whether or not Great Britain has a fighting chance against a team like Uruguay. Their entry into the competition was automatic, being the hosting nation.
The Uruguay Olympic Football team has a pretty impressive Olympic record.The fact that the team is being led by ÓscarTabárez and consists of two-thirds of the force that led them to the World Cup semi-finals two years back, leaves very little room for any possible doubts. Indeed, Uruguay has every right to boast as one of the strongest squads among the sixteen teams competing in the 2012 Olympic football tournament.
