Team GB faces a massive match today when they play South Korea in the Olympic men’s soccer tournament. A win and Team GB will be in the semi-final. A loss, and they’ll make the short trip home.
You could argue that Team GB has exceeded expectations thus far. With manager Stuart Pearce in charge, everyone expected a dire tournament especially after the way Team GB played so poorly against Brazil in the pre-tournament friendly. But I’d argue that it’s been the Team GB players who have lifted this side rather than anything in particular that Pearce has done. The former Manchester City manager is merely a spectator.
That may sound harsh, but I’d like to see Pearce having to make a critical decision today to see whether he has what it takes to be a manager at this level. Against a very tough South Korea side, we may see that happening today.
For viewers in the United States, the match will be shown live on MSNBC, NBC’s soccer channel, NBCOlympics.com and the NBC Live Extra app.
