  1. Great Britain's men's football team qualifY for the quarter-finals of the Olympic football tournament after Sturridge's goal defeatS Uruguay. Pearce's men progress to the knockout stages, where they will face South Korea on Saturday, as winners of Group A.

  2. 90 + 5


  3. 90 + 5

    Suarez curls the free-kick through the wall but Butland brilliantly catches the effort.

  4. 90 + 5

    Goalscorer Sturridge goes off and is replaced by Craig Dawson. Uruguay have a free-kick within shooting distance.

  5. 90 + 4

    Lovely strike from 20 yards from Gaston Ramirez rattles the frame of the GB goal. A very late scare for Pearce.

  6. 90 + 3

    Ramsey picks up a very late booking. Presumably for time-wasting.

  7. 90 + 2

    Two minutes of four additional minutes have now been played. GB are going into the quarter-finals if something remarkable does not happen.

  8. 90 +1

    Sinclair's evening is over. Jack Cork comes on.

  9. 90

    Referee Nishimura diffuses the situation. Uruguay take the corner and Rose heads clear. Uruguay attempt to return the ball into the box. But Butland claims and is fouled. Excellent goalkeeping.

  10. 89

    Richards has words with Cavani and there is a mass confrontation in the GB penalty area. Coates does not look happy.

  11. 88

    Corner to Uruguay after a bit of a scramble to deny Suarez and Cavani. GB thought Cavani was offside.

  12. 87

    Uruguay make a hash of the free-kick. Sturridge breaks forward and Campana saves well to tip a curling effort around the far post.

  13. 86

    Allen is fortunate not to be shown a yellow card when pulling down the counter-attacking Egidio Arevalo.

  14. 85

    It is all turning a little bit prickly in the closing minutes. Lots of free-kicks.

  15. 84

    Ramsey takes the free-kick. It is terrible. He fires the cross over the penalty area and out of play on the far side.

  16. 83

    Referee Nishimura has had an excellent game.

  17. 82

    Ramon Arias is booked for a nasty challenge on Ramsey on the left-side of GB's attack. Substitute Nicolas Lodeiro is then also shown a yellow card for showing dissent by punching the ball into the ground.

  18. 81

    Richards again wins the header in front of Coates to clear the free-kick. It has been a good battle between those two at opposing set-pieces.

  19. 80

    Cleverley is astounded that he is adjudged to have fouled Suarez wide on the right. Replays show the Manchester United midfielder did kick the striker in the shins.

  20. 79

    Bellamy is still chirping away having now sat down on the bench. Cavani was not happy that Bellamy was putting the captain's armband onto Richards' arm.
