Team GB boss Stuart Pearce will make a decision on striker Daniel Sturridge's Olympic football dream after Friday night's friendly against Brazil.

The 22-year-old Chelsea frontman is battling his way back to fitness after being diagnosed with viral meningitis and remains a doubt for the tournament, which gets under way next week.

However, he is back in training and doing well, and Pearce is hopeful he will be ready to face Senegal in the Great Britain side's first group game. Pearce said: "He looks very good, to be fair. Obviously, we are hoping to play him in some part of the game tomorrow, and really make a final judgment call at that stage."
