Great Britain will be hoping to make it two wins in succession on Wednesday evening when they take on Uruguay in their final group game of the men’s football as Paddy Power report the latest odds and free bets on Stuart Pearce’s side tonight.
Stuart Pearce’s men were impressive at times against UAE in the last game, picking up three valuable points after being frustrated against Senegal in their opening fixture of the tournament.
Looking at the win – which took place in front of a packed Wembley stadium – it was Captain Ryan Giggs that gave Great Britain the lead before Scott Sinclair and Daniel Sturridge got a goal apiece following UAE’s equaliser.
The result means that Great Britain will qualify for the next round if they secure a draw against Uruguay. However, they are being urged to go for the win and top the group to give themselves an even better chance of progressing to the latter stages.

It will definitely be a tough game for Pearce and his team. Although Uruguay have failed to impress massively so far – they defeated UAE but went down 2-0 to Senegal – but they still have plenty of dangerous players.
This includes Liverpool striker Luis Suarez who will look to cause the Team GB defence some problems throughout. Edinson Cavani and Gaston Ramirez are other dangerous players, while their approach of ‘must-win’ means they will be positive from the very first whistle.
In terms of the team news for Team GB, Sturridge is likely to start alongside Craig Bellamy in attack, while Micah Richards is also likely to come back in. Overall, Team GB will hope to have more than enough for their visitors as they look to progress from the group stages.
Backed by a passionate crowd at the Millennium Stadium, this should be a cracking match between two good sides. It gets underway on Wednesday evening from 7.30pm.
