Great Britain vs Uruguay, Olympic Soccer: Open Thread

Team GB kicks off against Uruguay today at 2:45pm ET on NBC Sports Network and NBCUniversal Soccer Channel (as well as and the NBC Olympics Live Extra app).

Team GB starting line-up: Butland; Taylor, Richards, Caulker, Bertrand; Ramsey, Allen, Cleverley; Bellamy (c), Sturridge, Sinclair.
