LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – When Great Britain vs. Uruguay 2012 head to Old Trafford today (en vivo 11:45 AM PST), Ramirez and Lodeiro will be attempting to get Uruguay into the quarterfinals. Today’s Great Britain vs. Uruguay 2012 match is critical; three teams are all on the brink of advancing into the quarterfinals, or being eliminated, based upon today’s outcome.
The situation in Group A is tense currently with three teams only one point apart. News analysts have been reminding soccer fans today that the two top ranked male teams at the end of Wednesday’s group games will advance to the quarterfinals. While that situation is more clear in other groups, Group A is still too close to predict.
Currently, Great Britain and Senegal lead Group A with four points each with Uruguay close behind with three points. United Arab Emirates is currently eliminated from the tournament. But with Great Britain, Senegal, and Uruguay all playing today, a dramatic loss by any of the three teams could climate them from this tournament.
For Team Uruguay, the hope remains with Ramirez and Lodeiro. The two delivered a masterful performance against UAE in their tournament opener last week. Ramirez scored forty-two minutes into the match. And Lodeiro delivered the game winning goal only fourteen minutes later.
Great Britain’s offense has been exceptional. Against Senegal. Bellamy delivered a goal only twenty minutes into the match. The game ended with a 1-1 draw. Then against UAE, Giggs, Sinclair and Sturridge all scored. Today’s match is expected to be tape delayed. But live scores can be viewed online today HERE.
The two top teams to advance out of Group A today will battle the top two advancing teams out of Group B, likely to be Mexico and South Korea. News analysts remind fans that Group B quarterfinals games will be August 4 at Wembley Stadium and at Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.
As Wayne Rooney told fans moments ago, “Really enjoying the olympics. Good luck to my friend Ryan Giggs and the Team GB tonight. Come on lads!”
