Great Britain's men followed the women into the Olympic quarter-finals as Daniel Sturridge's goal secured a 1-0 win over Uruguay at the Millennium Stadium.

And Stuart Pearce's men admirably opted not to follow the lead of those discredited badminton players by trying to engineer a result that would keep them out of Brazil's way until the final. Instead, should they come through a last-eight meeting with South Korea in Cardiff on Saturday evening, they will face the hot favourites at Old Trafford next Tuesday.

Sturridge's goal was the least they deserved from yet another encouraging display, which maintained improvement from previous matches.
