Stuart Pearce: Has Team GB edging towards the knockout stage
Stuart Pearce insists there will be no letting up from his Team GB side after picking up their first win.
A 3-1 victory over the United Arab Emirates at Wembley on Sunday has left Britain within touching distance of the quarter-finals.
They require just a point from their final Group A fixture against Uruguay to secure their safe passage to the knockout stage.
Pearce, though, does not know how to play things safe.
He was a no-nonsense defender during his playing days and a coach who demands 100 per cent from his troops at all times.
Taking that into account, he has made it clear that Team GB will be going all out for another three-point haul on Wednesday when they head to the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.
"We're going to try and win every game," he said.
"We've set the team up to do that, always.
"I think we can improve on the performance from tonight. We always expected that we would improve on the performance game by game.
"It's going to be tough against Uruguay, but we have got to recover and get ready for it."
Pearce saw two substitutions against the UAE change the course of the tie, with Scott Sinclair and Daniel Sturridge entering the fold to score two late goals.
"The two lads came off the bench and had a real impact for us, which was pleasing," added Pearce.
