James de Gale is the Olympic champion.

Seven days from now, 80,000 people will be packed inside the Olympic

:00:57.:01:01.

Stadium, awaiting the start of the opening ceremony. Tonight at the

:01:01.:01:05.

Riverside, another piece of history is about to be made. In the first

:01:05.:01:09.

time in over 50 years, Team GB is preparing to field a team at the

:01:09.:01:13.

Olympic Games. History could be made. Gold is the aim, and a chance

:01:13.:01:23.
:01:23.:01:23.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 58 seconds

:01:23.:02:22.

Terrific skill by the 19-year-old. Nice touch, nice term, a great goal.

:02:22.:02:32.
:02:32.:02:37.

That is what he is all about. Joe Great block by Tomkins. It is into

:02:54.:03:01.

at the Riverside, 90 minutes for the Team GB to gel. Faces like

:03:01.:03:06.

Micah Richards, against nine Mar and the whole of Brazil. A team

:03:06.:03:16.
:03:16.:03:17.

that are much more unified -- against nine Mar -- Neymar and Hulk

:03:17.:03:22.

of Brazil. It is over 50 years since Team GB competed at the

:03:22.:03:29.

Olympics, even Garth Crooks is too young to remember that. Team GB

:03:29.:03:33.

football is new to Robbie Savage, too. Good to have you here. Us

:03:33.:03:39.

Olympic football excite you? Yes, it does. From a wealth point of

:03:39.:03:45.

view, to see Ryan Giggs playing a major competition. -- a Welsh point

:03:45.:03:51.

of view. It could be this experience only, there is no

:03:51.:03:54.

guarantee there will be a team sent to Rio, we have got to make the

:03:54.:03:59.

most of it. I have been lucky to go to two Olympics, Atlanta and Sydney,

:03:59.:04:05.

and I realise that is where dreams are made. Team GB have a chance to

:04:05.:04:12.

go on the most amazing ride. They have got to Gill for big -- got to

:04:12.:04:22.
:04:22.:04:22.

gel. That starts tonight, that is the test. The will is still only

:04:22.:04:25.

had to incorporate two new players but this team is not one that

:04:25.:04:30.

anybody would recognise -- the women's team. As a collective, they

:04:30.:04:36.

have never played together. That is absolutely right. That is the

:04:36.:04:39.

challenge for Stuart Pearce. They have got to pick the road running,

:04:39.:04:45.

almost. They have got to start quickly against an unbelievable,

:04:46.:04:52.

fantastic Brazilian side. More on those players, and you will notice

:04:52.:04:56.

that Robbie and I shared a sud this evening. Stuart Pearce has plenty

:04:56.:05:06.
:05:06.:05:07.

Stuart Pearce has the historic task of steering broke Britain's through

:05:07.:05:11.

this Olympics. This is your first public Team GB selection, what is

:05:11.:05:16.

the thinking behind your line-up tonight? We have played one it away

:05:16.:05:24.

in Spain dined closed doors. This is another market, to get been a --

:05:24.:05:27.

behind closed doors. This is another marker, to get the fitness

:05:27.:05:32.

up ahead of the game against Senegal. And to go into that game

:05:32.:05:36.

ready to fire for the tournament. You said you will assess Daniel

:05:36.:05:39.

Sturridge after tonight's game, what is your gut feeling as to

:05:39.:05:43.

whether he will make it or not? think he will be fine, personally.

:05:44.:05:48.

He has showed us in training that he is at it. On the back of that we

:05:48.:05:52.

have given him a start up front, his favoured position. We are

:05:52.:05:56.

looking to maybe push him out there for 45 minutes and pull him off at

:05:56.:05:59.

that stage, and see how is and how he comes out of that tomorrow

:05:59.:06:04.

morning. A very impressive Brazil line-up, some big Games in there,

:06:04.:06:10.

all of their players have senior caps, how big a test will this be?

:06:10.:06:15.

-- big names in there. It is the biggest test we can have at the

:06:15.:06:23.

level. For us, it is a perfect game to judge what we are, physically

:06:23.:06:28.

and tactically. We will come out of this game the better for it, no

:06:28.:06:32.

matter what goes into the game. I have said, go out and enjoy it,

:06:32.:06:36.

make sure we get what we want out of the game. With the main

:06:36.:06:39.

objective being next Thursday, hitting the ground running them.

:06:39.:06:49.
:06:49.:06:50.

This is the team that Stuart Pearce has gone with, his first first 11.

:06:50.:06:57.

He has gone with local lad Jason Steele in goal. Quite a few

:06:57.:07:03.

familiar names, quite a few Welsh names. Joe Allen, Ryan Giggs,

:07:03.:07:08.

Taylor. Sturridge was suffering from meningitis last week. There is

:07:08.:07:12.

plenty to play with on the bench. am very excited about the front

:07:12.:07:17.

three. He has gone for pace. Sturridge has an eye for goal. He

:07:17.:07:23.

said it is his favoured position. Danny Rose is a bit unknown. And we

:07:23.:07:28.

all know about Craig Bellamy. It will be interesting. Let's talk

:07:28.:07:33.

about Ryan Giggs and his leadership about Ryan Giggs and his leadership

:07:33.:07:35.

qualities. I was fortunate to play with him for Wales and when he

:07:35.:07:40.

speaks, you listen. All of the young boys will learnt so much. I

:07:40.:07:43.

believe Stuart Pearce will look to his leadership to help him. He is a

:07:43.:07:47.

fantastic character, he is funny around the players and he is the

:07:47.:07:51.

most decorated player in British football. Never had a chance to

:07:51.:07:55.

perform on the global stage, with Wales not qualifying for major

:07:55.:08:01.

tournaments. A potential for him to show the world. It will be

:08:01.:08:03.

interesting in the midfield. England got criticised for not

:08:03.:08:07.

keeping the ball. Great Britain have three players in the middle of

:08:07.:08:11.

the park who like to keep the ball. They need to do that tonight

:08:12.:08:17.

against a Brazil who will keep the ball. Those players around Giggs

:08:17.:08:21.

needn't threat. If they feel under pressure, they can give the ball to

:08:21.:08:27.

him -- needn't fret. It will not faze Ryan Giggs so it is great to

:08:27.:08:31.

have him in the side. Micah Richards was a part of the

:08:31.:08:37.

Manchester City scored, if not always a regular. -- the Manchester

:08:37.:08:41.

City squad that won the league. He has never quite Brogan into the

:08:41.:08:46.

England team and become a regular. He fell away a bit at Man City.

:08:46.:08:53.

never quite broken into the England team. It is a big chance for him at

:08:53.:08:58.

this stage. Brazil, up 18 who know each other well. They don't qualify

:08:58.:09:03.

for the next World Cup because they are hosts -- Brazil, a team who

:09:03.:09:07.

know each other. This tournament is an important landmark, the

:09:07.:09:11.

development of a young squad. Neymar is known the world over, he

:09:11.:09:15.

is wanted by the world's richest clubs, they can't get their hands

:09:15.:09:19.

on him just yet. They have the money in Brazil to keep some of the

:09:19.:09:25.

best players and he is one of them. I am interested to see how he

:09:25.:09:35.
:09:35.:09:35.

We know they are going to play with flair and exuberance. We are going

:09:35.:09:39.

to have to cope with that tonight. They will attack. Brazil can't play

:09:39.:09:43.

any other way. They have been unfaltering, regressing their style

:09:43.:09:48.

after a bit of criticism in the last World Cup -- they have been

:09:48.:09:54.

altering. Against Argentina, Messi played and scored a hat-trick, most

:09:54.:09:59.

of these Brazil players play. I am looking forward to seeing Oscar,

:09:59.:10:05.

and Lucas who is on the bench. is there too. You won't like him

:10:05.:10:15.
:10:15.:10:15.

when he is angry! -- Hulk is there. Stuart Pearce says it is the best

:10:15.:10:22.

way to start, against Brazil. it? I am not sure. I think if they

:10:22.:10:25.

played a lesser nation, they would have been able to keep the ball

:10:25.:10:30.

more. Brazil will have more possession. I don't disagree but I

:10:30.:10:34.

think players are best on the edge. Players will know they are against

:10:34.:10:41.

the best on the world and they will have to play. Let's see. 90 minutes

:10:41.:10:45.

for this team to gel against a Bristol side who are looking to

:10:45.:10:52.

conquer the world in a couple of years -- against a Brazil side. It

:10:52.:11:02.
:11:02.:11:06.

will be an interesting test. Here There is something special about

:11:06.:11:11.

this that we can't put into words. The Olympic adventure that lies

:11:11.:11:16.

ahead for Team GB. For years -- seven years football fans have been

:11:16.:11:19.

debating the ins and outs of entering a British side for these

:11:19.:11:25.

Games. The home nations have been good. The talking stops on a lovely

:11:25.:11:30.

Teesside night, with Great Britain player its first match since 1971,

:11:30.:11:36.

a 5-0 defeat against Bulgaria. It was a team of amateurs, teachers,

:11:36.:11:41.

insurance salesmen and fishmongers. The gloomier pundits predict a

:11:41.:11:51.
:11:51.:11:52.

similar scoreline tonight, worth �300 million, the Brazil side. As

:11:52.:11:58.

an order for the Olympic Games, this could be sumptuous in the

:11:58.:12:02.

evening sunshine. Vital for Brazil that they do well in these Olympics

:12:02.:12:12.
:12:12.:12:12.

to come. We pause for the anthems gold at the Olympics in a fortnight,

:13:37.:13:46.

what can Team GB do? # God save our gracious Queen

:13:46.:13:50.

# Long live our noble Queen # God save the Queen

:13:50.:14:00.
:14:00.:14:00.

# Send her victorious # Happy and glorious

:14:00.:14:10.
:14:10.:14:26.

# Long to reign over us Stuart Pearce. He is the hero of

World Cup 90 and Euro 96. What a test this will be for a Team GB,

:14:35.:14:40.

that have had one at warm-up game against Mexico, played in Spain

:14:40.:14:48.

last week, 330 minute periods, they lost 1-0. -- 3 and periods of 30

:14:48.:14:56.

minutes. Ryan gig captains the side -- Ryan Giggs captains the side.

:14:56.:15:01.

Ryan Birch and starts on the right, normally a left-back. -- Ryan

:15:01.:15:07.

Bertrand starts on the right. Stuart Pearce says he needs to see

:15:07.:15:12.

Jason Steele in action, he has seen a lot of Jack Butland for the U21s.

:15:12.:15:17.

The big question, is Daniel Sturridge as fit as the coach says?

:15:17.:15:20.

A decision on his Olympic participation will be made after

:15:20.:15:29.

this. Only Pato is missing from Brazil's glittering line-up. All 11

:15:29.:15:33.

starters are full internationals, 10 players have won major-league or

:15:34.:15:43.
:15:44.:15:48.

Continental titles. Neymar is the Thiago Silva has just cost Paris St

:15:48.:15:53.

Jermaine over �30 million. Martello is one of the best left-backs in

:15:53.:16:02.

the world. That is some line up. There will be a lot of interest on

:16:02.:16:12.
:16:12.:16:12.

young Sturridge, whether he can get sharp in training. He will want to

:16:12.:16:16.

be part of it. The Brazil team is littered with talent. Look what

:16:16.:16:25.

they have one already. They have the equivalent of the European

:16:25.:16:28.

Champions League. That tells you the seriousness and quality of the

:16:28.:16:35.

team. This is the man we have come to see. Only four players have

:16:35.:16:40.

scored 100 goals before the age of 20, including Neymar, there he is.

:16:40.:16:43.

There was a huge cheer when his name was read out before the game.

:16:43.:16:49.

This is what you come to see, the stars. It is a star-studded Brazil

:16:49.:16:56.

line up. He scored his 100 goal on his 20th birthday, Neymar, South

American football of the Year at the age of 90. -- footballer of the

:17:34.:17:44.
:17:44.:17:55.

They are inside GB's 18-yard box. Making them kick it long, that is

:17:55.:17:59.

one thing Stuart Pearce did not want to do, he wanted to play from

:17:59.:18:09.
:18:09.:18:29.

pressure. They lost some of their there was a late challenge.

:18:29.:18:39.
:18:39.:18:53.

referee spotted it. The referee is the Euro 2012 English players, no

:18:53.:18:58.

Northern Ireland players four Scottish players. The respective

:18:58.:19:02.

football associations of those two countries did not exactly support

:19:02.:19:12.

:22:04.:22:08.

across the line, coming short, there is a lot of movement there.

:22:08.:22:15.

Tom Cleverley is quite high up the pitch, near to him. He has played

:22:15.:22:21.

three games for England Under 21s last season, for Stuart Pearce, the

:22:21.:22:31.
:22:31.:22:51.

:22:51.:22:56.

to be in the back of the net. is criticism of Neymar back in

:22:56.:23:06.
:23:06.:23:34.

Brazil that he has not lived up to expected Brazil formation. Hulk has

:23:34.:23:37.

started further on the left than we had thought, Oscar Moore to the

:23:38.:23:47.
:23:48.:23:49.

right hand side. -- Oscar, more to the right hand side. The Brazil

:23:49.:23:54.

coach is under pressure, there is a feeling he will be sacked if they

:23:54.:23:59.

don't win gold. He was a defender as a player, then he became a P E

retinue of doctors and trainers, youngster really. He is one of the

:25:01.:25:11.
:25:11.:25:18.

He is offside, there is a worry about the English centre backs.

:25:18.:25:22.

There is a huge gap between Micah Richards and James Tomkins and even

:25:22.:25:27.

though I have to say that they will come round on number two, he comes

:25:27.:25:33.

round, he wasn't offside, was he? Micah Richards steps forward, he

:25:33.:25:43.
:25:43.:25:51.

between these players in the squad, Team GB 29, Ryan Giggs has 23 of

can have an argument in a phone box now. He scored 30 goals for Santos

:28:22.:28:32.
:28:32.:28:47.

Sandro has scored for Brazil. The Team GB defenders were expecting a

:28:47.:28:55.

shot at goal, he crept in totally unmarked. It is a Spurs player, who

:28:55.:29:00.

scored for Brazil in this Olympic warm-up. He got caught, flat footed,

:29:00.:29:07.

expected the shot, it did not come. A lovely ball to the far post,

:29:07.:29:12.

Neymar with the cross. It was weighted beautifully. He floated it

:29:12.:29:16.

over Steele, a simple goal in the end. Lack of concentration at the

:29:16.:29:26.

back for GB. He has entrusted Sandro with a starting place in the

:29:26.:29:36.
:29:36.:29:36.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 58 seconds

:29:36.:30:18.

side in the last four games. That You're talking about him a few

:30:18.:30:22.

minutes ago, slightly erratic. I think Daniel Sturridge has gone

:30:22.:30:31.

past him twice now with relative ease. Sent off a couple of times

:30:31.:30:35.

for Real Madrid last season. referee has made it very clear to

:30:35.:30:42.

him that this is a friendly, no more of that or you are in the book.

:30:42.:30:45.

I like Daniel Sturridge for his acceleration, he can stop the ball,

:30:45.:30:49.

can go past a player. He was waiting for a bit of support. There

:30:50.:30:59.
:31:00.:31:25.

Richards got up well. Britain's did ever so well to keep it in. --

:31:25.:31:35.
:31:35.:32:06.

the international player. The each other. Oscar has dropped back

:32:06.:32:16.
:32:16.:32:19.

to left back. It is basics. Hold that position until you go back.

:32:19.:32:24.

Three years, it they have used full backs as attacking wing-backs in a

:32:24.:32:30.

back four -- for years. I was reading a journalists say that they

:32:30.:32:33.

have gone too much for pace and power and that the Spanish way is

:32:33.:32:43.
:32:43.:32:55.

the way now, and Brazil have to get the free kick. Let's have a look at

:32:55.:33:01.

the Micah Richards chance. He comes around the back post. I think he is

:33:01.:33:05.

trying to head it back across the goal. He heads it down and take the

:33:05.:33:13.

pace of it. Cabral comes across, he looks like he has got a blocked.

:33:13.:33:16.

But Richards could not direct it back into the six-yard box, where

:33:16.:33:23.

he could have caused trouble. A good leap at the far post. The best

:33:23.:33:33.
:33:33.:33:41.

chance of scoring is that set his weak spot according to the

:33:41.:33:51.
:33:51.:34:15.

Brazilian side -- the goalkeeper is Brazil have never achieved in the

:34:15.:34:25.
:34:25.:34:25.

Olympics, we have two gold medals at football. 19 a late and 1912! --

:34:25.:34:35.
:34:35.:34:40.

leave out David Beckham? Gig just gave yards and yards for the papers.

:34:41.:34:47.

He was damned if he did and damned if he didn't. He was proved that if

:34:47.:34:53.

he was given the job, was allowed to choose his own squad. I feel

:34:53.:34:57.

sorry for David Beckham, but his career has been littered with

:34:58.:35:02.

medals and great occasions. He has played at a high as levels, he has

:35:02.:35:06.

played in the World Cup, European Championships, Champions League

:35:06.:35:13.

finals. David Beckham isn't without the top end of a player's career.

:35:13.:35:18.

If you look at Bellamy, he has missed out with Ryan Giggs, because

:35:18.:35:22.

Wales have not qualified. For themselves, I think it is a good

:35:22.:35:32.

decision. I understand that David wants to play. Had there been a

:35:32.:35:36.

squad of 23, I think he would have made it. Unfortunately for him, he

:35:36.:35:41.

hasn't. People sympathise because of everything he has done to help

:35:41.:35:46.

bring the Olympics to the country. A lovely ball by Marcello to Thiago

:35:46.:35:56.
:35:56.:36:07.

tried the little spin. The free- kick goes the way of a Team GB, a

:36:07.:36:17.
:36:17.:36:25.

pass but he did not have enough movement went Craig Bellamy took

:36:25.:36:28.

the free-kick. Not enough people in advanced positions to take

:36:28.:36:38.
:36:38.:36:39.

advantage. It is quiet inside the stadium. Brazil have won two

:36:39.:36:49.
:36:49.:37:15.

Olympic silver medals and two pass the Olympic Stadium for the

:37:15.:37:20.

last few years. Bertrand trying to find a front runner with an

:37:20.:37:24.

optimistic ball. I think we are doing relatively well, keeping the

:37:24.:37:28.

ball at the back. Tomkins is comfortable, Taylor is comfortable

:37:28.:37:34.

on the ball. They are trying to work it into Allen and mines. It is

:37:34.:37:44.
:37:44.:37:46.

the middle third, when we half- into the feet of Sturridge and

:37:46.:37:56.

:38:08.:38:13.

three times. They have won the South American Under 20

:38:14.:38:22.

Championship 11 times, including the last three. The home nations

:38:22.:38:30.

can't boast that kind of record. Whatever competition they enter,

:38:30.:38:40.
:38:40.:38:59.

they look to win. It is was Stuart was under pressure. He is composed.

:38:59.:39:02.

This is one thing we have found with the international team, when

:39:03.:39:08.

the ball goes back to the keeper, it is usually clear it. That is

:39:08.:39:11.

where we turn over the ball on occasions. If they have had a

:39:11.:39:17.

chance to pass it out, they have done that. A bit of hesitation

:39:17.:39:22.

between Bertrand and Richards. He was confident enough to bring it

:39:22.:39:26.

out. I wonder if the referee gave him the benefit of the doubt, he

:39:26.:39:36.
:39:36.:39:50.

was in possession. I think he could are made to feel very much part of

:39:50.:39:55.

the British Olympic team at the village, when they stayed on Monday.

:39:55.:39:59.

They came up here to the north-east, to train on Wednesday. Stubble

training sessions. They met the cerebral palsy GB team as well --

:40:06.:40:14.

double training sessions. And emotional moment for the Sinclair

:40:14.:40:19.

family, because Scott Sinclair is with this team and his brother is

:40:19.:40:29.
:40:29.:40:34.

this time. Got himself a bit of space. That is Sandro, the goal

:40:34.:40:43.

scorer. He did better with his head of. -- his header. It just took

:40:43.:40:47.

everybody by surprise. Tomkins doesn't really anticipate his run.

:40:47.:40:56.

He lets his man get a rate from him. -- away from. You are relying on

:40:56.:41:01.

everybody staying tight and concentrated. It took a good

:41:01.:41:11.
:41:11.:41:13.

challenge to stop Sandro by amazing story for him last year.

:41:13.:41:19.

come from nowhere to play in a Champions League final. And being

:41:19.:41:23.

on the left-hand side of midfield, he has played most of his football

:41:23.:41:29.

away from Chelsea on loan at various clubs. Oscar was gifted

:41:29.:41:39.
:41:39.:41:49.

team together over the last six months or so. Six of the squad were

:41:49.:41:53.

in the Under 20 World Cup winning side of last summer. Oscar was the

:41:53.:42:03.
:42:03.:42:35.

start. Marcelo was in the previous referee. Team GB look for Rose.

:42:35.:42:45.
:42:45.:43:00.

GB corner. They have hope because the goalkeeper doesn't look the

:43:00.:43:04.

most confident in the air. Sturridge has had a couple of

:43:04.:43:13.

shooting opportunities and he takes them. As a striker, you have to be

:43:13.:43:23.
:43:23.:43:53.

didn't do too well with the last year's Under 20 World Cup-

:43:53.:44:03.
:44:03.:44:07.

winning side. Here is Hulk. Rafael joining in. Rose got across to him.

:44:07.:44:12.

This is Brazil's first corner. play from at Danny Rose. Timed it

:44:12.:44:18.

well. As always with Brazil, full backs to have to get forward. This

:44:18.:44:25.

is the midfield and attack. -- they have to assist the midfield and

:44:25.:44:35.
:44:35.:44:51.

with Manchester United over the last few years. A new contract, he

:44:51.:44:55.

has the ability to become one of the world's top right full-backs

:44:55.:45:05.
:45:05.:45:33.

art to get it back underneath the bar. Good passing from Brazil, it

:45:33.:45:39.

opens up, he has time and space to look up. He tried to pick out

:45:39.:45:43.

Leandro. Not easy to get it back on target. Just to ease with which

:45:43.:45:50.

they got the full-back in there, Rafael, too easy. He made his debut

:45:50.:46:00.
:46:00.:46:32.

to get away with a messy defending. Was this a foul? It looked like,

:46:32.:46:42.
:46:42.:47:16.

didn't it? Yes, it was. Ryan Giggs not so magical when a player goes

:47:16.:47:20.

down. Totally unnecessary. He does have something of a reputation

:47:20.:47:25.

about that as well. Correct, against Scotland, he did the same

:47:25.:47:30.

thing. It was a slip, whether there was contact with Bertrand's boot, I

:47:30.:47:37.

am not too sure. He tried a foul initially, go back on his feet, it

:47:37.:47:47.
:47:47.:47:57.

in that game in March 2011 and was accused of this sort of thing,

:47:57.:48:02.

going down too easily. He went down far too easily. Was it birdcam's

:48:02.:48:11.

hand on his head? -- the Trans's hand on his head? He should come

:48:12.:48:16.

down to the panel -- you could come to the Pamir it lead if he comes

:48:16.:48:22.

down that easily. The way the game stopped, this is just awful. The

:48:22.:48:28.

slightest of touches, is that what you are going to go down for? It

:48:28.:48:32.

does not endear him to the crowd. Everybody on that side of the pitch

:48:32.:48:37.

can see that. We saw this with Drogba, a lot of the foreign boys

:48:37.:48:43.

here. What about the good side, the skill? There is no question of that,

:48:43.:48:48.

lovely skills on the move. That is fantastic, that is what we try to

:48:48.:48:54.

encourage kids to do, move the ball around. His goals record speaks for

:48:54.:49:01.

itself, there is no question of his quality, this is unnecessary, the

:49:01.:49:10.

play acting. He has been rated alongside Messi, Christian Ronaldo.

:49:11.:49:20.
:49:21.:49:39.

about it. Where I come from, we would say, man up. A flick of the

:49:39.:49:49.
:49:49.:50:16.

Absolutely. He just moved away from him, slipped so easily away for the

:50:16.:50:19.

Manchester City defender, who will get a yellow card. His first touch

:50:19.:50:23.

is so important, then off we went. There was always going to be

:50:23.:50:28.

problems. There would two good touches, then this, the Chase of --

:50:28.:50:33.

change of pace, there, you can't go to ground. You can't go to ground

:50:33.:50:39.

and make that challenge. He has got in front of you. Richards is now

:50:39.:50:49.
:50:49.:50:59.

12 minutes, have a chance to double their lead. The Blues are for Moura

:50:59.:51:09.
:51:09.:51:34.

becoming a world footballing great. -- Naymar. There was power and

:51:34.:51:39.

accuracy in the strike, but it nice and slow. He guessed right. It was

:51:39.:51:47.

finished really well, no question about it. We get a lesson here,

:51:47.:51:51.

Micah Richards can consider himself fortunate he did not get a red card

:51:51.:51:57.

for that as well. Nice and accurate, it hits the side netting.

:51:57.:52:04.

Unstoppable. The referee has said to a Naymar Packet Inn, the

:52:04.:52:14.
:52:14.:52:23.

celebration, you antagonising the favourites to be a limpet top

Wednesday, at 3:30pm. The men's team play Senegal next Thursday,

to Brazil's defence whatsoever. Probably from... Confirmation that

:53:59.:54:08.

Micah Richards was cautioned. He gave away the penalty. In the

:54:08.:54:18.
:54:18.:54:35.

competition proper I think it would Olympics, Senegal, United Arab

:54:35.:54:44.

Emirates, Uruguay. There are some great names to look forward to

:54:44.:54:49.

seeing in this tournament. The quality that Brazil have on this

:54:49.:54:55.

pitch right now. They are in Group C, playing Egypt and pillories.

:54:55.:55:05.
:55:05.:55:42.

They will avoid Spain until the actually. I know it was slightly

:55:43.:55:47.

forward but I think that is where the space was and that is what he

:55:47.:55:52.

anticipated -- and that was where he anticipated Leandro going. Great

:55:52.:55:58.

pace, movement. It is the movement of the ball on the way to the pass.

:55:58.:56:02.

They can keep the ball under pressure and cause as a problem.

:56:02.:56:12.
:56:12.:56:39.

When we are under pressure, give played left midfield and the

:56:40.:56:49.
:56:50.:57:08.

Champions League final. Sitting the final third, we are

:57:08.:57:12.

dispossessed. We are sitting far too deep. There is not enough

:57:12.:57:16.

support to him, no one close enough to him, we are spending a lot of

:57:16.:57:22.

time chasing. Brazil have always had two City midfield players who

:57:22.:57:26.

are prepared to gobble up anything loose and pressed the ball inside

:57:26.:57:36.
:57:36.:57:41.

their own third. There is a near -- there is a real difference. Romulo

:57:41.:57:46.

and Sandro are sitting players this is the important areas. We can't

:57:46.:57:56.
:57:56.:57:59.

keep the ball. Cleverley was fouled. Sandro is looking cross. He looks

:57:59.:58:05.

heard. He has had problems with foot and ankle injuries. His last

:58:05.:58:09.

start for Manchester United was October. He was a clear run,

:58:10.:58:14.

doesn't it? Get himself back in the spring of things. He was not happy

:58:14.:58:21.

with that challenge whatsoever. He has had senior England call-ups.

:58:21.:58:31.
:58:31.:59:04.

has not made an appearance for the the ball comes to him, flicking up,

:59:04.:59:07.

trying to flick to over somebody's head, get hold of the ball and just

:59:07.:59:12.

retain possession. We keep giving it away far too easily. That is why

:59:12.:59:22.
:59:22.:59:34.

we are spending the majority of the catch the keeper out at the near

:59:34.:59:43.

post. Once again, a great movement of the ball. Neymar was going to go

:59:43.:59:49.

in that space. Hulk comes into it, what he is trying to do his

:59:49.:59:52.

disguise what he was aiming to do which is fake the cross for the

:59:52.:59:58.

shot. Good movement, great movement from Brazil. There was criticism in

:59:58.:00:02.

Brazil for his selection, some felt he should have been kept back and

:00:02.:00:12.
:00:12.:00:30.

off Micah Richards. Once again, the electric pace down the right-hand

:00:30.:00:34.

side for Rafael, lots of space. Look at the space at the edge of

:00:34.:00:39.

the 18-yard box there. Micah Richards, hands behind the back,

:00:39.:00:47.

blocked it with any. So much space. There again, time and space for

:00:48.:00:57.
:00:58.:01:27.

The full-backs are always going forward, they shift over one side

:01:27.:01:37.
:01:37.:02:10.

ball at this late stage of the half. Just the movement, watching Oscar

:02:10.:02:18.

at the moment, in the frontline of the midfield, he comes close to the

:02:18.:02:22.

back to collect. He is challenging the team. He played against one of

:02:22.:02:26.

the fancied teams to win the tournament, one of the best teams.

:02:26.:02:31.

That was a poor ball by Thiago Silva. Bellamy has gone to the

:02:31.:02:41.
:02:41.:02:47.

left-hand side. Joe Allen had to haven't made the best use of it.

:02:47.:02:57.
:02:57.:03:03.

Hulk was offside. I think the can pass the ball well, he did well

:03:03.:03:08.

season -- did so all season with Swansea. Giggs was onside, he

:03:08.:03:13.

didn't realise it. That is the last moment of a first half, dominated

:03:13.:03:19.

by Brazil in terms of class, quality. Neymar's penalty for the

:03:19.:03:25.

Micah Richards's foul, adding to Sandro's header. They have been

:03:25.:03:31.

very good Ms value -- very good value, these are stars in the

:03:31.:03:41.
:03:41.:03:43.

They were certainly a difference in class in the first 45 minutes.

:03:43.:03:47.

Neymar showed flashes of brilliance and that was the penalty that made

:03:47.:03:53.

it 2-0 to Brazil after 45 minutes. We will show you how that was won

:03:53.:03:57.

in a few moments, with some of the best bits of Brazil and some of the

:03:57.:04:02.

worst bits of defending of Team GB. We looked like a team that has

:04:02.:04:07.

never played together before, that is the kindest thing you could save.

:04:08.:04:11.

Micah Richards Sam Tomkins are finding it very difficult to forge

:04:11.:04:16.

any type of understanding -- Micah Richards and Tomkins. I am worried

:04:16.:04:23.

about most of the dangers coming down the left-hand side. Hulk was

:04:23.:04:26.

superb for the penalty, he brought him down almost back into first

:04:26.:04:33.

gear, then went to third gear and Richards couldn't get there. When

:04:33.:04:37.

you are stretched as a defender, stay on your feet. Forget it, he is

:04:37.:04:45.

through. Micah Richards solved the problem for the attacker. There are

:04:45.:04:50.

a lot of lessons to be learned but we have got to hit the road running.

:04:50.:04:53.

Being together in training, spending a couple of weeks together,

:04:54.:04:58.

getting to know each other is one thing. It is not until you get into

:04:58.:05:01.

a semi competitive environment that you start to find out about each

:05:01.:05:06.

other. We have seen the first half lack of communication,

:05:06.:05:10.

understanding and the whole back four in general. Brazil have been

:05:10.:05:15.

the far better team, keeping the ball and Brazil -- Team GB have

:05:15.:05:19.

given the ball away cheaply. It has been a poor performance by a Team

:05:19.:05:25.

been a poor performance by a Team GB, understandably so. Let's look

:05:25.:05:30.

at the first goal. Tomkins has a word with Bellamy but he loses his

:05:30.:05:34.

marker. Once the ball is bouncing in the penalty area, it is game

:05:34.:05:40.

over. He will have to learn very quickly. Once the ball bounces, you

:05:40.:05:45.

have got to forget the ball and mark your man. The body position

:05:45.:05:51.

was all wrong. He should have been open. The warning signs were there.

:05:51.:05:56.

They were. We have seen the lack of communication. Richards going for

:05:56.:06:02.

the same ball as Tomkins, I think Neymar was clean through on goal. I

:06:02.:06:07.

think we are going to see it here. Tomkins should have got around a

:06:07.:06:16.

bit quicker. Are we are let off the hook there. As a defender, you know

:06:16.:06:20.

he is not going to win it, that is the attitude you take. You get

:06:20.:06:26.

round and you cover but he doesn't do it. This one, Richards has tried

:06:26.:06:30.

to play offside. Tomkins is watching the ball. By the time he

:06:30.:06:35.

realises, is man is in. It is a lack of communication. They have

:06:35.:06:40.

never played together before. The left-hand side, looking at Tomkins,

:06:40.:06:48.

he doesn't actually know where his man is. Were it not for what some

:06:48.:06:51.

finishing from Brazil that was slightly suspect, it could be a lot

:06:51.:06:55.

worse. It could. They are playing against top-class players. That is

:06:55.:07:00.

why I said, better now than later. If we are serious about getting a

:07:00.:07:05.

medal, we will probably have to play these in the semi-final.

:07:05.:07:09.

seems a long way off right now. is a friendly, let's not get

:07:09.:07:14.

carried away, there are no points at stake. We are learning how to

:07:14.:07:18.

play together. Stuart Pearce has 15 minutes to get them regrouped and

:07:18.:07:23.

calm down. I would like to see the midfield, Joe Allen and Cleverley,

:07:23.:07:27.

getting into contact with Oscar. Oscar is running the show. Don't

:07:28.:07:32.

let him dictate the play, push up a few yards, get in contact, make it

:07:32.:07:37.

competitive. Let's look at the penalty, no doubt for you that

:07:37.:07:44.

Micah Richards was a bit naive. is fantastic player from Hulk. He

:07:44.:07:50.

stops Richards, he goes again. Richards is naive, diving in. Lack

:07:50.:07:55.

of games from Richards last season and pre-season... This is the angle.

:07:55.:07:59.

He is struggling, leave it alone, he has gone, it is up to the

:07:59.:08:04.

goalkeeper. He hasn't scored the goal. Once you have a penalty

:08:04.:08:09.

against the Brazilians, that is what happens. Steele will not have

:08:09.:08:12.

enjoyed his first half in his Home enjoyed his first half in his Home

:08:13.:08:18.

Stadium. It is growing up time for a lot of these guys. Which is good.

:08:18.:08:23.

Micah Richards has got to do some more growing, certainly Tomkins has.

:08:23.:08:28.

Taylor is finding it very difficult. Danny Rose is disappointing. By

:08:28.:08:34.

trans, not too bad. I think -- Bertrand is not too bad. We have

:08:34.:08:39.

seen a gulf in class. You can paint the picture how you want. Basically

:08:39.:08:44.

Brazil are a far better team. first 10 minutes or so, when Ryan

:08:44.:08:50.

Giggs was more in the game, there was a bit of delivery, you felt

:08:50.:08:54.

that perhaps they were going to build steadily. But Brazil just

:08:54.:08:59.

smothered to them. Jonathan Pearce said that Great Britain's best

:08:59.:09:08.

chance was from a set-piece. It was chance was from a set-piece. It was

:09:08.:09:18.
:09:18.:09:27.

Micah Richards was unfortunate. We have got to try to take advantage

:09:27.:09:37.
:09:37.:09:40.

of Ryan Giggs' quality. That has We have a double header of men's

:09:40.:09:46.

and women's football at the Riverside Stadium. The Olympics is

:09:46.:09:51.

going to be opened by the football on Wednesday, how much is tonight

:09:51.:09:56.

helping to a print -- raise the profile? It is fantastic to bring

:09:56.:10:02.

it to the north-east of England, the chance for the not Voller --

:10:02.:10:07.

the north-east of England to get really involved. A tough match, but

:10:07.:10:12.

great experience of what they are going to face coming into the games.

:10:12.:10:16.

Really pleased on both fronts. A chance to get involved in the Games

:10:16.:10:20.

in the north-east and a chance for art seems to have some top

:10:20.:10:23.

experience. In Great Britain we don't necessarily think of football

:10:23.:10:26.

as being an Olympic event, football doesn't need the Olympics, unlike

:10:27.:10:31.

some of the other sports. What have you been doing to create the one

:10:31.:10:36.

team ethos with the other sports? Actually, it is a very historic

:10:36.:10:40.

moment tonight. The first time a Team GB team has competed in

:10:40.:10:45.

women's football for this country so I think it is important. Every

:10:45.:10:51.

single athlete, all 542 that will represent Team GB, has come to the

:10:51.:10:54.

Loughborough preparation camp, where they have had the opportunity

:10:54.:10:57.

to meet the other athletes and be inducted into the team. Every

:10:57.:11:02.

athlete has been through that, all 800 support staff. Now all of the

:11:02.:11:05.

athletes including the footballers are coming into the village

:11:05.:11:08.

environment and we have the privilege of having the footballers

:11:08.:11:13.

with us last week. Give us an insight into what it is like in the

:11:13.:11:17.

village at the moment. Interesting times. 130 nations are registered

:11:17.:11:24.

for the games. About 2000, 3,000 athletes are in so far. It is

:11:24.:11:26.

fantastic and important to get there early and they have had that

:11:26.:11:34.

opportunity. Thank you. Team GB took on Sweden in the

:11:34.:11:44.
:11:44.:11:50.

women's game earlier. It was not a The pullback is not good enough but

:11:50.:11:57.

it still works for Whyte and it is just past the post. The closest we

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 58 seconds

:12:08.:13:15.

goalkeeper wasn't too sure. Always left. Little has the chance to

:13:15.:13:22.

venture forward. Smith is offside. A good finish but it won't matter.

:13:22.:13:28.

We look across tell Sir the offside flag is up. Kim little picks it up

:13:28.:13:32.

and it is definitely offside. It is a great finish and she will be

curl it in. Rachel Yankey is through and onside. The follow-up

:14:40.:14:50.
:14:50.:15:04.

Yankey was at the heart of it all missed. The best chance of the

:15:14.:15:36.

did enough to put off and the Congratulations on your player of

:15:36.:15:41.

the match in a Team GB shirt. What is it like? I was delighted to play

:15:41.:15:44.

friendly game with South Africa, it helped me get my nerves out. The

:15:44.:15:49.

goals have been fantastic. It was good to have family and friends in

:15:49.:15:52.

the audience and at home in Scotland. I tried to keep it simple

:15:52.:15:55.

and stick to the game plan we have been working on for the last week

:15:55.:15:59.

or so and we achieved that. Bob was a disappointing not to get the win,

:15:59.:16:04.

but it was good to be undefeated. He was England captain, now the

:16:04.:16:08.

Team GB captain in your fancy new kit. What was it like out there

:16:08.:16:13.

today? It was a tough challenge. We knew Sweden would be tough. They

:16:13.:16:16.

are World Cup bronze medallists. We know we can play better than we did

:16:16.:16:20.

today. It is good to get a game under our belt. A clean sheet is

:16:20.:16:24.

fantastic. It was good defending. We need to take chances and more

:16:24.:16:34.
:16:34.:16:35.

Don't forget, you can watch Team GB take on New Zealand in the first

:16:35.:16:39.

event of the 2012 Olympics next Wednesday afternoon at 3:30pm. The

:16:39.:16:43.

majority of that team playing for England, or that was lacking today

:16:43.:16:46.

was a competitive edge. That will be there on Wednesday, you can be

:16:46.:16:56.
:16:56.:16:57.

sure. Let's look ahead to the men's through to the quarter-finals.

:16:57.:17:02.

Argentina failed to qualify this time. Brazil will be confident of

:17:02.:17:09.

qualifying from Group C and the Spain squad featuring Mata will be

:17:09.:17:13.

favourites to progress from Group D. Great Britain's main opposition

:17:13.:17:18.

will come from a Uruguay team featuring Luis Suarez and they meet

:17:18.:17:22.

in the final game of the group on Wednesday, August 1st, at the

:17:22.:17:28.

Millennium Stadium. Before that, Stuart Pearce, men -- Stuart

:17:28.:17:32.

Pearce's men face Senegal and the United Hamed -- United Arab

:17:32.:17:36.

Emirates. Whilst you we are the weaker side they have played 17

:17:37.:17:45.

times together in preparation for I would expect GB and Uruguay to

:17:45.:17:52.

come through. Mexico are very dangerous on GB's side of the draw.

:17:52.:17:54.

Joint favourites for me as Spain and the team we are seeing at the

:17:54.:17:58.

moment, Brazil. They are the teams to beat. Players to watch in the

:17:58.:18:05.

tournament, I mentioned you have got out there playing for Spain and

:18:05.:18:10.

Mata, they put quality in their side, don't they? They just won the

:18:10.:18:17.

under 19. They are not short of talent in the Under 23 Stakes.

:18:17.:18:21.

the Spaniard has moved to Barcelona. They were fantastic and the euro's,

:18:21.:18:26.

a great talent. You have Luis Suarez, a fantastic players on show.

:18:26.:18:30.

It is going to be exciting. GB are going do have to defend better than

:18:30.:18:34.

they have tonight to get any medal at all. What I will be looking for

:18:34.:18:41.

the second half is them playing with respect for the Brazilians,

:18:42.:18:46.

they are good players, step-up five yards and compete more. I am

:18:46.:18:50.

expecting changes by Stuart Pearce. Don't be surprised to see Sinclair.

:18:50.:18:54.

You want to see the over-rate players, kids, Bellamy and Richards.

:18:54.:19:02.

I agree with Garth, the players have pace. Let's see what happens

:19:02.:19:12.
:19:12.:19:16.

in the second half. A huge learning for Team GB at the start of the

:19:16.:19:20.

second half as we see a second significant change in fact, because

:19:20.:19:27.

as we are seeing running out there, Scott Sinclair, Team GB has made

:19:27.:19:31.

two half-time substitutions and they are making a third now. They

:19:31.:19:37.

are also bringing on Scott Sinclair, Jack Cork has come on as well and

:19:37.:19:41.

Jack Butland has replaced Jason Steele in goal. The Middlesbrough

:19:41.:19:45.

goalkeeper replaced by the Birmingham City goalkeeper, who was

:19:45.:19:51.

out on loan at Cheltenham all last season and was watched at one game

:19:51.:19:56.

by 52 top scouts and went with England to the European

:19:56.:19:58.

Championships of course, did not make an appearance but he is very

:19:58.:20:08.
:20:08.:20:13.

highly rated. That is his first for Team GB, Jack Cork has come on

:20:13.:20:20.

to the heart of the midfield and Scott Sinclair has come on one the

:20:20.:20:30.
:20:30.:20:56.

left-hand side. The son of the substitution, there is Steven

:20:56.:21:06.
:21:06.:21:38.

Caulker out there. Yes, Tomkins has will the changes have, do you

:21:38.:21:48.
:21:48.:21:49.

think? It looks like Taylor has gone to write back. Danny Rose has

:21:49.:21:53.

gone to left back, he has played there before. The Spurs left side

:21:53.:22:02.

midfield. That is Caulker there, a loose touch. Craig Bellamy has gone

:22:02.:22:12.
:22:12.:22:12.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 58 seconds

:22:12.:23:11.

down the middle, Scott Sinclair has Southampton. He has had a nomadic

:23:11.:23:21.
:23:21.:23:43.

existence until then, on loan from Birmingham. He has played for

:23:43.:23:53.
:23:53.:23:58.

England at every level, hasn't he? proved a real danger at set pieces.

:23:58.:24:03.

He scored the opening goal. Just getting and the free header, the

:24:03.:24:08.

set piece, misses GB's best opportunity to score but they have

:24:08.:24:18.
:24:18.:24:50.

Jack Butland has been brought into action since coming on and it was a

:24:50.:24:58.

good save. An excellent save. Neymar doing well, nice and

:24:58.:25:06.

composed, shifts the ball and tests the keeper. Straight at Butland. It

:25:06.:25:16.
:25:16.:25:26.

was the first thing he has had to Leandro moving to the near post. A

:25:26.:25:36.
:25:36.:25:42.

good understanding with Oscar from to look over the goalkeeper. He

:25:42.:25:52.

knows he has too much on it. years of age, be experience already.

:25:52.:26:01.

-- big experience already. Leandro, Oscar, Hulk, nee Moa, the movement

:26:01.:26:05.

up front, interchanging of positions, coming away from the

:26:05.:26:13.

play to get the ball, this is just... Bellamy going into da Silva.

:26:13.:26:23.

He uses his body. The sunset at the seaside -- over Teesside,

:26:23.:26:28.

Middlesbrough's own Olympic flame. A special night for the people who

:26:28.:26:33.

have come. They won't forget this, going into an Olympics and being

:26:33.:26:43.
:26:43.:26:47.

able to play apart in it by they will be able to say in years

:26:47.:26:54.

to come, I remember seeing them at Teesside. GB have to apply pressure,

:26:54.:27:04.
:27:04.:27:21.

in midfield, try to win the ball from 1960 will be watching the

:27:21.:27:31.
:27:31.:27:56.

simply can't attract P&O, Hulk, Neymar, Oscar -- they can't track.

:27:56.:28:01.

That isn't accurate shot Crom Estate Jack Butland. That is the

:28:01.:28:05.

second time within a few minutes he has had to deal with it. Just the

:28:05.:28:09.

movement off the ball, out of position, to be able to create

:28:09.:28:13.

space for other players. It is fantastic to watch, the passing as

:28:13.:28:19.

well, the accuracy, the tempo of their play, slow, then quickening

:28:19.:28:24.

it up and it has become an exercise of can Team GB get the ball, and if

they get it, can they try to keep He needs support on the right-hand

side, I am not sure that is what Mary's, after travelling around on

:29:53.:30:03.

loan, six clubs to learn his trade a lot of players, it stops the

:30:03.:30:13.
:30:13.:30:53.

growth of the home-grown clubs. -- Team GB. Huff Bellamy was in their

:30:53.:30:59.

-- this is much better. That is the best Team GB move of the game.

:30:59.:31:06.

excellent move. Juan they have worked it, great play of from Danny

:31:06.:31:13.

Rose, a celebration -- acceleration. Cabral pulls of their wonderful

:31:13.:31:23.
:31:23.:31:24.

save, he didn't know he was offside. We have not had full backs bursting

:31:24.:31:29.

down to put in crosses. I think Cabral is injured. He is

:31:30.:31:34.

disappointed it didn't go in the back of the net, but it is better.

:31:34.:31:40.

It is the first time we have really had a shot on target. With Rose and

:31:40.:31:43.

Taylor playing further up, the Brazilian right backs cannot raid

:31:43.:31:47.

as dangerously as they did. only time the full backs can get

:31:47.:31:52.

forward like that is if you keep possession, to allow them to step

:31:52.:31:55.

forward in the opponents' half, to comfortably have the ball. If you

:31:55.:31:58.

start going forward as full backs and you haven't got comfortable

:31:58.:32:07.

possession, you get exposed at the back. 50-50 possession. For all the

:32:07.:32:14.

game? Yes, but look at the goal attempts on target. I wouldn't say

:32:14.:32:22.

Team GB have had 50% of the play. Brazil keep the ball moving, keep

:32:22.:32:32.

it moving. The two holding midfield players just hold, they changed

:32:32.:32:38.

positions, they run off Ford and you have Oscar coming deep. If --

:32:39.:32:48.
:32:49.:32:51.

they run off forward. It is wonderful to watch simplicity of

:32:51.:32:56.

the moving and the passing. Marcelo with the header away, Team

:32:56.:33:01.

GB can still bring on Dawson, the West Bromwich Albion defender,

:33:01.:33:06.

Aaron Ramsey of Arsenal and Marvin Sordell who moved to Bolton in the

:33:06.:33:16.
:33:16.:33:17.

general windowed. -- January window. All of the players will be itching

:33:17.:33:27.
:33:27.:33:57.

good, composed touches. Jack Cork captained the England Under 18 at

:33:57.:34:03.

the 2008. I like what I have seen it off him. He is quite elegant, he

:34:03.:34:13.
:34:13.:34:34.

runner when he was a schoolboy. An for Giggs. Marcelo was there with

:34:34.:34:43.

cleverly. -- Cleverley. Juan clears it towards Leandro, he was trying

:34:43.:34:53.
:34:53.:35:03.

to bring in Hulk on the left-hand Ramsey. I should imagine Cleverley

:35:03.:35:08.

will have a rest. Marvin Sordell is going to come on as well. Rose has

:35:08.:35:18.
:35:18.:35:22.

think Danny Rose did ever so well. He got down the left-hand side.

:35:22.:35:29.

This is good place and play. Rafael goes to ground and doesn't get the

:35:29.:35:33.

ball. He is trying to pick out Ryan Giggs. On the edge of the box,

:35:33.:35:43.
:35:43.:36:06.

seen Oscar in the second half, here Romulo, the Spartak Moscow player.

:36:06.:36:16.
:36:16.:36:23.

the block in, well played. He read the situation well. This was low,

:36:23.:36:33.
:36:33.:36:40.

the defender down, and then up through the gear. Neymar with the

:36:40.:36:50.
:36:50.:37:04.

shuffled around in terms of moving forward. Taylor has come to this

:37:04.:37:09.

side, Rose has dropped to the left- back position and he has got for a

:37:09.:37:14.

better than he did from the Ford position -- he has got forward

:37:14.:37:21.

better. Than he did from the forward position. I am sure Stuart

:37:21.:37:25.

Pearce will go back and look at the DVD and break things down into

:37:25.:37:30.

areas. In the first half they couldn't really affect the back

:37:30.:37:34.

four of Brazil, they didn't get at them or put them under any pressure.

:37:34.:37:41.

Here is Aaron Ramsey, the Arsenal player. Coming on for his national

:37:41.:37:51.
:37:51.:37:51.

hero. Ramsey, the youngest Welsh captain. He replaces Ryan Giggs,

:37:51.:38:01.

his old hero. The next GB substitution, Marvin Sordell comes

:38:01.:38:08.

on to replace Craig Bellamy. GB have had better shape in the second

:38:08.:38:12.

half. Craig Bellamy, presumably being saved for Senegal next

:38:12.:38:18.

Thursday. It is only right that you try to give everybody a run. See

:38:18.:38:26.

what they can do. Try to get themselves back into this game. It

:38:26.:38:30.

is good for Marvin Sordell. He had a really good spell at Watford, he

:38:30.:38:33.

moved in the genuine transfer window, he didn't get the start

:38:33.:38:38.

that he wanted. He has a great opportunity here. He has only

:38:38.:38:44.

played 43 minutes for Bolton after the 43 -- after the �3 million a

:38:44.:38:51.

genuine move. He had a decent scoring record at Watford. -- �3

left-hand side. Marcelo eventually -- footballer of the year for the

:39:57.:40:21.

will make history with appearances in the same summer in the Olympics

:40:21.:40:31.
:40:31.:40:36.

hurry to press like they did in the first half. Sordell is in the

:40:36.:40:46.
:40:46.:40:58.

back courageously and in determined fashion to save his side. Neil

:40:58.:41:03.

Taylor played Neymar onside in the first place, he showed the pace to

:41:03.:41:13.
:41:13.:41:18.

stay with him. He managed to get get back, he times it perfectly.

:41:18.:41:24.

Sandro has gone forward, the man who got the first goal. Sandro is

:41:24.:41:34.
:41:34.:42:14.

substitutions. Ganso, number 16. The first want to come on, Lucas

:42:14.:42:24.
:42:24.:42:43.

United made a bid for Lucas. He is a very good dribbler, be? That he

:42:43.:42:53.
:42:53.:43:04.

may be too selfish. -- there is a Oscar. Oscar would be my pick of

:43:04.:43:08.

the Brazilians in the first half, his movement and his touch, his

:43:08.:43:18.
:43:18.:43:22.

awareness, linking the play. went Donga did not pick Ganso four

appearance so far for Tottenham, had a bit of a nightmare in the

League Cup competition. He found his speech playing for Brendan

:44:28.:44:32.

Rodgers at Swansea, he came on leaps and bounds when he used the

:44:32.:44:37.

ball. I think it was the way they play, everybody has to have the

:44:37.:44:47.
:44:47.:45:14.

hit and I hope from Ramsey. -- hit and hope. Trying to be creative.

:45:14.:45:17.

Running into the front line, running beyond from players

:45:17.:45:27.
:45:27.:45:56.

sometimes creates space for the wrong. Centre-backs, we have not

:45:56.:46:03.

been able to test the mettle, Juan, Thiago Silva, they have been

:46:03.:46:06.

protected by the full-backs. They have not been under any pressure

:46:06.:46:16.
:46:16.:46:35.

have lunged into a challenge, but he has learned. The same for Rafael,

:46:35.:46:41.

once he got into Manchester United, his talent is not questionable but

:46:41.:46:44.

he is rash, he would slide all the time, get himself booked and for

:46:44.:46:47.

what they want to do, when the Champions League and the League, he

:46:48.:46:54.

had to learn quickly and he has improved such a lot. They could

:46:54.:47:04.
:47:04.:47:11.

send on Pato added time now. -- any Sinclair and Rose. They have looked

:47:11.:47:21.
:47:21.:47:41.

dangerous on the left-hand side. A could cover though. Good work from

:47:41.:47:51.
:47:51.:48:00.

substitutions, that is going to be Pato who comes on for Leandro. He

:48:00.:48:06.

has had a thigh injury for most of 2012, a sumptuous talent though.

:48:06.:48:11.

Craig Dawson is going to come on, the West Bromwich Albion defender.

:48:11.:48:16.

There is Pato, the Brazilian substitute. Will RGB be able to get

:48:16.:48:20.

Dawson on before the corner tick -- before the corner kick is taken?

:48:20.:48:25.

They are trying to. Yes, they are going to do it. Micah Richards is

:48:25.:48:35.
:48:35.:48:35.

coming off. It is pre-season, they are searching for this business. --

:48:35.:48:41.

for their fitness. Here is Dawson, from Rochdale, from West Bromwich

:48:41.:48:51.
:48:51.:48:51.

Apology for the loss of subtitles for 58 seconds

:48:51.:49:35.

substitutions, haven't we? I think so, from GB. What a talent Pato is.

:49:35.:49:44.

Name Llyr has gone down. -- Neymar has gone down. I think he has dirt

:49:44.:49:49.

in his sock. You can take a touched like that and anticipated challenge

:49:49.:49:54.

from the defender, can you complain when it comes in? You look at Messi,

:49:54.:49:58.

the likes of the Spanish player, they are filed a lot. What they

:49:58.:50:08.
:50:08.:50:13.

tried to do is let go of the ball played for England Under 20 once on

:50:13.:50:23.
:50:23.:50:41.

eight occasions. -- Under 21s on youth policy way you cannot afford

:50:41.:50:51.
:50:51.:51:12.

enough. Look at the pace, he did not get for Sordell any time to get

:51:12.:51:18.

out there and run at him. He accelerated. He snuffed out any

:51:18.:51:28.
:51:28.:51:51.

chance of Sordell turning and out. Well done, Butland. It opened

:51:51.:51:56.

up on the edge of the box. Good movement, a good pass once again.

:51:57.:52:01.

You can see what he is trying to do, the shape of his body, trying to

:52:01.:52:04.

whip it around the first post -- the far post but he does not get

:52:04.:52:12.

the angle. It is weak. I wonder if he goes on to be a football legend,

:52:12.:52:17.

whether kids around the world to will copy his hairstyle. It is the

:52:17.:52:27.
:52:27.:52:53.

more it. A free kick given against Wednesday. Their opening game in

:52:53.:52:59.

the Olympics, kick off at 3:30pm. The men play Senegal on Thursday,

:52:59.:53:09.
:53:09.:53:46.

so quickly, division to in 2010. -- played 13 minutes in the finals, he

:53:46.:53:56.
:53:56.:54:10.

knows that he has Marcelo ahead of him in the pecking order for a few

:54:10.:54:20.
:54:20.:54:54.

didn't he? Lucas has got great exhilaration with the ball. He got

:54:54.:55:00.

away from Jack Cork. Ten minutes to go. It is slightly petering out,

:55:00.:55:06.

but you know, keep the spirits up, try to get back in the game. There

:55:06.:55:10.

is no one in the group as good as these, there is no doubt about that.

:55:10.:55:15.

Brazil are one of the best. Senegal are a different threat, a tall,

:55:15.:55:25.
:55:25.:55:43.

confident young man, Neymar. moves the ball very well, a short

:55:43.:55:49.

free kick, opens up. That is the viewing position of 40 is trying to

:55:49.:55:55.

go for, keeping it low. He works hard as well. Everybody has to work

:55:55.:56:02.

hard at the team. Especially the stars of the game, they press GB

:56:02.:56:07.

right on the edge of the 18-yard box. They tested them out to see if

:56:07.:56:17.
:56:17.:56:38.

senior debut, they beat the USA 4-1. They were beaten by Mexico. Mexico,

:56:38.:56:43.

a great counter-attacking, then Messi scored a hat-trick and they

:56:43.:56:50.

got a 4-3 win. Bessie is one of the superstars of the game to have

:56:50.:56:57.

played in the Olympics. -- Messi. He insisted on playing and scored

:56:57.:57:07.
:57:07.:57:26.

excellent. Their composure in possession. Romulo has been a good

:57:26.:57:36.
:57:36.:58:16.

foil for the attacking, creative made here -- made it here tonight

:58:16.:58:20.

that Neymar has been kept on, a genuine superstar and are making.

:58:20.:58:26.

The crowd has come to see him. There is hype about him, he needs

:58:26.:58:30.

to perform brilliantly on the international stage. Some people

:58:30.:58:40.
:58:40.:58:50.

say that Messi still has to do that on. He did not see Danny Rose on

:58:50.:58:56.

the outside of him. That ball came to Sordell, a lack of awareness.

:58:56.:59:02.

Brazil making another substitution, Danilo was going to come on. He is

:59:02.:59:06.

another player who moved to Porto last season from Santos. Sandro is

:59:06.:59:16.
:59:16.:59:17.

going to go off. Yes, played well. Our first goal after 11 minutes. --

midfield. He won a title in two different countries in the last 12

:59:36.:59:44.

months with Danilo, with Santos. Then he picked a title with Porto.

:59:54.:00:05.

face. We have hardly mentioned the boys at the back, they have been

:00:05.:00:11.

well-protected. Sordell's are was out. I think he is trying to pin

:00:11.:00:20.

the centre-back behind him. Lovely ball in from Alexandra, looking for

:00:20.:00:30.
:00:30.:00:34.

plateau from the bench. It is ridiculous. Matt - to bring on a

:00:34.:00:44.
:00:44.:01:13.

to a very old George Best. -- Neymar just then was a flashback to

:01:13.:01:17.

a very young George Best. The way he used to run with the ball at his

:01:17.:01:21.

feet. The ball was glued to his feet, he used to mesmerised

:01:21.:01:31.
:01:31.:01:56.

a video of George Best. He was a came to see him, a superstar in the

:01:56.:02:02.

making. I said before, the amount of goals he scores in the games he

:02:02.:02:07.

has played, here he is, Neymar. I think he has shown the very best of

:02:07.:02:15.

what he can do. He has good food skills and his work-rate and

:02:15.:02:21.

movement... -- good foot skills. The combination of their movement

:02:21.:02:26.

up front, they have been really well supported up front. That was a

:02:26.:02:33.

nice touch to Sinclair by Sordell. The take it and strike. Just take

:02:33.:02:37.

it to your left foot and a strike, you might as well. The game is

:02:37.:02:47.
:02:47.:02:58.

didn't. A lovely ball to the far post, a good save by Jack Butland.

:02:58.:03:03.

He dived at the feet of Lucas very bravely. He goes to make sure that

:03:03.:03:13.
:03:13.:03:37.

the striker is OK and helps him up. with Neymar on his case. People

:03:37.:03:42.

need to remember that these are the favourites for the competition.

:03:42.:03:47.

�300 million of talent, at least. The centre half has just cost 30

:03:47.:03:57.
:03:57.:04:02.

they finish it? A good save again. Really good goalkeeping from an

:04:02.:04:09.

excellent young star. Watch out for him in the future. Joe Hart could

:04:09.:04:16.

have a real challenger in the England side. A lovely gifted touch

:04:16.:04:20.

again by Neymar, trying to set them up through the middle. This was a

:04:20.:04:26.

good stop by the keeper. Ben Foster said, take a note of this guy's

:04:26.:04:30.

name because he is a one for the future. He goes down well, he gets

:04:30.:04:36.

up, he covers his near post, on his toes all the time. He has made two

:04:36.:04:44.

or three good stops. He has come on at half-time and impressed me.

:04:44.:04:51.

Three minutes of added time at the Riverside. At half-time we feared

:04:51.:04:55.

that a Team GB might be buried in an avalanche of Brazilian second

:04:55.:05:03.

half goals, but it hasn't come. Credit to them. Robbie Savage said

:05:03.:05:08.

at half-time that we have seen the gulf in class. These are just good

:05:08.:05:13.

players. Exceptional players. The team has been together for a couple

:05:13.:05:17.

of weeks and they are working for their fitness as well. The same

:05:17.:05:21.

could be said for a lot of the other teams taking part. This looks

:05:21.:05:25.

a slick operation in front of us. If this is the team they are

:05:25.:05:32.

grooming for 2014, it is looking well. Don't forget, this is the

:05:32.:05:37.

first time that this Team GB has played together over 90 minutes.

:05:37.:05:43.

This Brazilian side has been together for most of this season.

:05:43.:05:53.
:05:53.:06:04.

They have a chance now to wrap again. He won't forget this game in

:06:04.:06:13.

a hurry. The a smirk on the face of Menezes. A little touch from

:06:13.:06:20.

plateaued, I think he is expecting that to go over. -- from Pato, I

:06:20.:06:30.
:06:30.:06:37.

think he is expecting it to go over game of the season was for

:06:37.:06:41.

Cheltenham against Macclesfield in front of 2000 fans. He has come a

:06:41.:06:49.

long way. We are looking for the younger talents to come through.

:06:49.:06:53.

From what you have seen in the second half, he hasn't been phased

:06:53.:07:03.
:07:03.:07:28.

to keep possession and keep the ball moving. Movement all the time,

:07:28.:07:32.

always looking for a new position. Wherever the ball is, everyone

:07:32.:07:38.

takes a position. Moves away, moves into space. Sometimes running

:07:38.:07:45.

unselfishly to create space for others. It has opened up a bit of a

:07:45.:07:55.
:07:55.:07:56.

gap, closed quickly by Dawson. against what will be the favourites

:07:56.:08:01.

for the gold medal. Stuart Pearce's men well beaten on the night, 2 a

:08:01.:08:09.

very good side. Neymar is one of the emerging global stars, a gulf

:08:09.:08:14.

in class but they dug in deep in the second half. There were a lot

:08:14.:08:22.

of changes. You can see why he was brought into the squad when Ruddy

:08:22.:08:27.

got hurt in the euros. A big gulf in class, a lot of quality in the

:08:27.:08:32.

team, players coming into the side. He didn't disappoint me. There can

:08:32.:08:36.

be occasions where there is a lot of build up. I think he knows the

:08:36.:08:40.

expectations on him and the team. He showed flashes of brilliance. A

:08:41.:08:46.

little bit of petulance. In general I thought they were real class

:08:46.:08:51.

tonight. The Team GB adventure starts tonight, watch them in the

:08:51.:08:56.

Olympics, watch Brazil over the next two years. This is a special

:08:56.:09:06.

Thank you. The good folk of Middlesbrough and the Riverside

:09:06.:09:10.

seem to have enjoyed what they saw. It was noted on Twitter that there

:09:10.:09:15.

was no chanting going on, because there isn't really a Team GB chant.

:09:15.:09:21.

Not yet. I think it might develop in the latter stages. It was much

:09:21.:09:28.

better in the second half. Enough to build atmosphere? Taylor, Rose,

:09:28.:09:33.

Colcot looked much more comfortable in the centre of defence -- Caulker

:09:33.:09:38.

looked. I think in Jack Butland, we have seen a performance in the

:09:38.:09:42.

second half which was very special. You could see the fruits of the

:09:42.:09:48.

labours from the training camp in Krakow. Absolutely, with Joe Hart

:09:48.:09:52.

and Robert Green. The Olympics is not unusual for bringing through a

:09:52.:09:57.

star or two. He might be that staff. We were quite critical about the

:09:57.:10:03.

lack of cohesion and communication. Players looking like they were out

:10:03.:10:07.

of sorts, not forging relationships. The second half, there was

:10:07.:10:12.

definitely a building. I saw confidence. There is no room for

:10:12.:10:16.

shrinking violets, you have got to have a go. I thought we saw one or

:10:16.:10:26.
:10:26.:10:30.

The rose was better at left-back, I thought. Much better. I still fill

:10:30.:10:34.

in the last third, we are not creating enough. We don't look like

:10:34.:10:39.

we're going to score a goal. Do you think it is we are out there?

:10:39.:10:47.

is not now, it will be. It is work in progress. We play sanicle next

:10:47.:10:57.
:10:57.:10:59.

week. We have UAE to look forward To I think you will hear chanting.

:10:59.:11:04.

What are they going to chant. is what the be away think they

:11:04.:11:11.

should chant. David Hart, given sell, a Team GB, go for gold. --

:11:11.:11:21.
:11:21.:11:22.

These are the goals from the first half. This is when things were

:11:22.:11:27.

rocky at the back. Tomkins gets caught out and you can't allow the

:11:27.:11:32.

ball to bounce there. Because this ball to bounce there. Because this

:11:32.:11:37.

is the result. He put it past the goalkeeper. James Tompkins had a

:11:37.:11:42.

poor first half. Caulker did much better in the second half. But

:11:42.:11:52.
:11:52.:11:57.

James Tompkins played in the I thought holed was clever and

:11:57.:12:04.

dynamic in the way he ran at Richards -- I thought Hulk was

:12:04.:12:09.

clever. He stops him, he goes again. Fantastic play and a definite

:12:09.:12:16.

penalty. Very clever how the changes gear, goes into overdrive.

:12:16.:12:23.

I think he should be leaving it alone there, leave him with the

:12:23.:12:31.

problem to score the goal. You were impressed by Hulk? I thought he was

:12:31.:12:35.

very impressive. I wouldn't be surprised to see him get a move, I

:12:35.:12:37.

think he is suited to the Premiership, he is big, strong,

:12:37.:12:44.

very quick. I know they gave the man-of-the-match to Neymar. His

:12:44.:12:50.

vision for a pass in the second half, Hulk was fantastic for me.

:12:50.:12:54.

What did you make of Neymar, so much hope and build up around him

:12:54.:12:56.

much hope and build up around him and so much demand for him. It is

:12:56.:13:00.

not unusual for star Brazilian players to have to cope with that

:13:00.:13:04.

hype and they have to produce it on the big stage. Their fans demanded,

:13:04.:13:11.

we want to see it. I thought Bosco looked very good today. He looked

:13:11.:13:14.

exceptional at the back. The Brazilians are not renowned for

:13:14.:13:24.

defensive qualities but they looked They were not tested. Menezes has

:13:24.:13:29.

been looking to change the style and be a side that can smother the

:13:29.:13:34.

opposition. I don't think they have never won the Olympic gold, their

:13:34.:13:37.

intention is very clear. They want to win this. They will have to roll

:13:37.:13:43.

Spain over to do it. But they are very capable. This Olympics is huge

:13:43.:13:47.

for them, they host the next Olympics, they host the next World

:13:47.:13:50.

Cup. They have the Confederations Cup next year, this is a big

:13:51.:14:00.

stepping-stone. If it is. If you look at Hulk, Oscar, Neymar, icy

:14:00.:14:05.

little signs of previous Brazilian teams -- I see little signs.

:14:05.:14:10.

guy who came on, Lucas, he was fantastic. His pace, he went past

:14:10.:14:17.

Caulker are once. There was a great shot and the save by Butland.

:14:17.:14:27.
:14:27.:14:27.

hear what Stuart Pearce made of his What is your assessment of that

:14:27.:14:32.

team two performers? Certainly not a fully fit one at the moment. We

:14:32.:14:35.

know next week is the most important one for us. I think we

:14:35.:14:38.

played against one of the outstanding Olympic sides, to be

:14:38.:14:46.

honest with you. I think they are let alone being under 23 side, they

:14:46.:14:51.

would take on most international teams to be fair. They could be one

:14:51.:14:54.

of the teams to knock over in this tournament. If you are going to win

:14:54.:14:58.

the tournament. They are a very good side, well ahead of us in

:14:58.:15:04.

respect to fitness and games together and understanding, but our

:15:04.:15:07.

players and a lot of young players in there have got to come out and

:15:07.:15:11.

use the positives from that. We passed the ball quite well,

:15:11.:15:16.

probably up to the final third. We gave away -- we gave away a couple

:15:16.:15:20.

of sloppy goals. We will draw the positives from it, we will have a

:15:20.:15:22.

look at it over the weekend and we will be stronger for the

:15:23.:15:26.

performance. What do you think you're side might have done better?

:15:26.:15:31.

We gave the ball away when we got it in advanced positions. We do not

:15:31.:15:34.

have enough numbers forward quickly enough to support it when we got it

:15:34.:15:39.

forward. They endeavoured to pass from the back for the full 90

:15:39.:15:45.

minutes. Certainly, one or two needed the fitness and needed 90

:15:45.:15:51.

minutes under the belt. A couple of these players have never played at

:15:51.:15:54.

this standard and this level before. What do you feel you learn from

:15:54.:15:58.

some of your players tonight? is a great deal to be learnt. We

:15:58.:16:03.

knew where we were fitness wise, that is for sure. I think we need

:16:03.:16:06.

to find a bit more punch in the final third, you know, that is for

:16:06.:16:10.

sure. That will come with maybe fitness, getting players into the

:16:10.:16:16.

box and numbers into the box. is your only competitive warm-up

:16:16.:16:20.

match before Senegal on Thursday. Do you feel ready for the games?

:16:20.:16:24.

think so, if you say do I think the team is ready, no, I would have

:16:24.:16:28.

answered the same weight if you had asked me before the game, we are

:16:28.:16:32.

not ready before this moment in time. On Thursday we will be more

:16:32.:16:37.

ready. We will have had two matches under our belt and another four or

:16:37.:16:41.

five training sessions between now and Thursday and it will be all to

:16:41.:16:44.

play for. I think we will get stronger as the tournament goes on.

:16:45.:16:49.

We knew that from the of said. Thank you.

:16:49.:16:53.

He said, before the match that Brazil was the best test for this

:16:53.:16:57.

side. Do you think it was and with hindsight a side that may have

:16:57.:17:01.

given you more confidence in your own performers? I don't think you

:17:02.:17:04.

going to a tournament with false notions, you need to know the

:17:04.:17:08.

reality. You have young kids who will grow up quickly because they

:17:08.:17:13.

have to. In the second half, some did. It was a fair assessment by

:17:13.:17:18.

Stuart Pearce. They struggled at third -- times, gave the ball away

:17:18.:17:22.

cheaply, but those guys want to be successful. They have had good

:17:22.:17:26.

seasons at their clubs. They are lacking in fitness. People might

:17:26.:17:31.

think it is a cop out. When you are tired, the form and technique goes.

:17:31.:17:35.

Give them a couple of games and they will be back. One of those

:17:35.:17:38.

players who progress during the game was Danny Rose. Yes, when he

:17:38.:17:42.

went to left back he was more comfortable, he formed a good

:17:42.:17:46.

partnership with Sinclair on that side. He set up the best chance,

:17:46.:17:55.

for a late dash for Craig Bellamy, It was much more positive from

:17:55.:18:01.

Danny Rose, from the left-back position. Maybe a shade of side.

:18:01.:18:07.

shade? Miles offside! If you are offside, you are offside. It

:18:07.:18:11.

terrific ball from Danny Rose, a better performance from the young

:18:11.:18:19.

Neil Taylor had a growing performance. Yes, he grew in

:18:19.:18:28.

He timed the tackle to perfection. He does brilliantly, he was

:18:28.:18:34.

thinking about offside, he tracks and tracks, gets the block in.

:18:34.:18:40.

Excellent defending. He gets tired towards the end, understandably so.

:18:40.:18:44.

Rose got tired, they work hard. By Thursday there will be much more in

:18:44.:18:51.

the tank. I think what we wanted to see more of was Ryan Giggs with set

:18:51.:18:59.

pieces or dead-ball opportunities. How proud way you to Captain Team

:18:59.:19:03.

GB tonight for the first time competitively? Obviously very proud.

:19:03.:19:07.

It was a good game to be involved and against Brazil, it is special

:19:07.:19:13.

to play Brazil. To Captain and be involved was great. Brazil are

:19:13.:19:17.

clearly an extremely talented side. A difficult match. Do you feel more

:19:17.:19:21.

or less confident going into the Olympic games after that? It was

:19:21.:19:24.

great preparation for us. They are ahead of us fitness wise. We have

:19:24.:19:30.

only been together really nearly two weeks, so we are getting better

:19:30.:19:34.

and better. Yes, it was a good market today. We are definitely

:19:35.:19:39.

getting better. We will improve as the tournament goes on. It was a

:19:39.:19:45.

good benchmark for us. Where do you feel the players are fit as wise?

:19:45.:19:49.

Are some tired, or are some on it - - undercooked, even? It is

:19:49.:19:54.

difficult really because you want all 18 players to be fit. That is

:19:54.:19:57.

the main thing for the first game. You can't kill them, running every

:19:58.:20:02.

day. Do what you would normally do in a pre-season. Equally, you need

:20:02.:20:07.

to get some sort of base fitness. It has been tricky, balancing the

:20:07.:20:11.

two. This game will bring as on again and we have another six days

:20:11.:20:15.

or so to get ready for Senegal. the captain of a side playing with

:20:15.:20:18.

each other for the first time, what did you learn about some of the

:20:18.:20:22.

other players tonight? We have talent in the dressing room.

:20:22.:20:28.

Everyone is comfortable on the ball. We will get better. I have seen it

:20:28.:20:31.

in training. I have seen the quality and training and we have

:20:31.:20:37.

seen in parts tonight. It is always disappointing to lose a game. But

:20:37.:20:40.

we will take the positives out of it. A bank you.

:20:40.:20:45.

He will enjoy playing at Old Trafford for the first competitive

:20:45.:20:50.

game of the Olympics, won't he? Ryan Giggs it must be bizarre, for

:20:50.:20:54.

Wales, playing with people who were not up to his standard and in this

:20:54.:20:57.

team he will look around the team... Oh it is generous of you to admit

:20:58.:21:04.

that. He said the players are comfortable on the ball. He is used

:21:04.:21:07.

to play with the best players in the world that United. He will help

:21:07.:21:11.

the younger players. It was nice to hear him say they are comfortable.

:21:11.:21:15.

He seems positive and comfortable that -- and confident that they can

:21:15.:21:20.

grow. Stuart Pearce has to decide what is best team he is. He has

:21:20.:21:24.

only had a short period to see what they can do. What is your best

:21:24.:21:30.

team? Put them in. I thought Caulker, Richards, Rose, Taylor,

:21:30.:21:35.

Buckland, that is his best five and we will go with that next Thursday

:21:35.:21:39.

but he has learnt a lot tonight. This time next week we will be

:21:39.:21:43.

half-an-hour or so to the opening ceremony extravaganza and there was

:21:43.:21:47.

some spectacular scenes in the capital tonight. The Olympic torch

:21:47.:21:51.

was at sailed into the Tower of London, where it will be locked up

:21:51.:21:56.

for the night along with the medalled. This is Royal Marine

:21:57.:22:02.

Martyn Williams are sailing torched down, the relay is entering its

:22:02.:22:08.

final week. It was handed to Dame Kelly Holmes. What a beautiful

:22:08.:22:12.

sunset in London. Let's hope that we're the remains. It will be

:22:12.:22:16.

carried by Lennox Lewis, Tim Henman, going from Downing Street to Albert

:22:16.:22:22.

Square. An historic week ahead. The Torch relay is the subject of a

:22:22.:22:27.

special programme coming up next week. Incredible. I know what the

:22:27.:22:36.

Queen feels like now. Wonderful. Marvellous. I am out of breath,

:22:36.:22:46.
:22:46.:22:51.

The British will come out, whatever the weather. This is what makes an

:22:51.:22:57.

Olympics special, people getting behind it. Just mind-blowing.

:22:57.:23:07.
:23:07.:23:10.

loved it, it was the time of my This programme tells the

:23:10.:23:14.

inspirational stories of people who carried the Flame, one to putting

:23:14.:23:22.

your diary. None of us carried it, Jack Butland, there was a few

:23:22.:23:26.

eyebrows raised when he was called into the squad. It is great to see

:23:26.:23:30.

another English keeper playing for GB tonight, coming through. There

:23:30.:23:35.

was a time when we had three or four world-class goalkeepers. It is

:23:35.:23:41.

great to have heart and Butland, he looked top-class tonight. A string

:23:41.:23:51.

He has strong hand. He pushed out of the danger area numerous times.

:23:51.:23:56.

Even there, the Punch, he knocked it 20 yards out of danger. Here

:23:56.:24:00.

again, he keeps strong hands. I love this. Look, straight away,

:24:00.:24:08.

smothers it. Brave. Brave. This is superb. You can see the benefit of

:24:08.:24:12.
