Great Britain's men face a tough group in the Olympic football tournament after being drawn against Uruguay, the United Arab Emirates and Senegal for the London 2012 Games.

Stuart Pearce's side will kick off the tournament against Senegal at Old Trafford, Manchester, on July 26, then play the UAE at Wembley on July 29 and finish the group against Uruguay in Cardiff on August 1.

Uruguay were viewed as the toughest opponents Team GB could have faced while Senegal qualified on Monday night after beating Oman in a play-off at Coventry.
