  1. The referee blows his whistle for full-time. Great Britain have drawn 1-1 with Senegal in their opening match at the Olympics.

  2. 90+4

    Konate finds himself with a sight of goal but he wastes the chance as his weak effort goes wide.

  3. 90+3

    Rose is taken out by a poor challenge from Mane on the halfway line. Free-kick to Great Britain.

  4. 90+2

    Great Britain have now increased the tempo but Senegal's defence are standing firm and clearing the danger.

  5. 90+1

    We are in the first minute of additional time.

  6. 90

    Great Britain have another shout for a penalty turned down as Sordell tumbles under a challenge from Abdoulaye Ba. It was the correct call from the referee to reject that appeal.

  7. 90

    Senegal cause panic at the other end as Mane sends a free header well wide of Butland left hand post. Chances late on at Old Trafford.

  8. 89

    Great Britain nearly move back ahead as Sordell hits the bar with a powerful effort after Ramsey found him in space with a neat cut-back.

  9. 88

    Senegal make their final change with Kalidou Yero taking over from Souare.

  10. 87

    The resulting free-kick from Giggs is met by Richards' header but he can only send the effort straight at Ousmane Mane in the Senegal goal.

  11. 86

    Papa Gueye is booked for a late challenge on Cleverley on the right flank.

  12. 85

    Mane is caught offside as he looks to find space for a shot. Senegal continue to look dangerous.

  13. 84

    Senegal are still dominating the possession after that equaliser. They will look to push on now.

  14. 82

    GOAL KONATE! Great Britain are punished as Konate is played through one-on-one with Butland and he finds the back of the net with a very neat finish. Senegal deserve that equaliser after being the better side in this half.

  15. 82

    Great Britain work the corner short but Giggs and Ramsey find they can't create anything.

  16. 81

    A good run from Ramsey ends with his low cross from the right turned behind for a corner.

  17. 79

    Great Britain make their final change of the night with Jack Cork taking the place of Bellamy, who is still hurting after the earlier hefty challenge. He certainly isn't happy with the fourth official.

  18. 78

    Senegal win a throw-in deep inside their own half as Abdoulaye Ba's clearance bounces out off the legs of Sordell.

  19. 77

    Mane overhits his attempted through ball to Magaye Gueye and the Senegal forward can't do anything to prevent a Great Britain goal-kick.

  20. 76

    Kouyatye sees his driven effort from 25 yards blocked and Great Britain clear the loose ball.
