Duo through to last eight

James Tomkins and Momo Diame have both made it through to the Olympic quarter-finals as Team GB and Senegal finished first and second in Group A respectively.

Tomkins was an unused substitute at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium as Team GB beat two-times Olympic gold medallists Uruguay 1-0. A goal from Daniel Sturridge just before half time was enough to make sure Stuart Pearce's side survived the group stages undefeated and will go into their quarter final with South Korea on Saturday high in confidence.

Diame captained Senegal as they drew 1-1 with already-eliminated UAE at the City of Coventry Stadium. UAE had taken a surprise lead through Ismaeil Matar before Moussa Konate scored his fourth goal in three games to ensure his side progressed to the last eight.

Team GB will now face South Korea in Cardiff at 7.30pm on Saturday, while Senegal will face Mexico at 2.30pm on the same day.
