Stuart Pearce has a medal in his sights after Team GB defeated Uruguay 1-0 to qualify for the quarter-finals of the Olympics.
Great Britain, who are 7/1 with bet365 to win gold, will take on South Korea at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday after Daniel Sturridge grabbed the only goal of the game on Wednesday.
Pearce revealed his men had been inspired by Great Britain’s medal winners during the day, as well as the women’s side’s 1-0 win over Brazil on Tuesday, and he is aiming to add to the nation’s medal tally.
“We have only ever planned and prepared to win the tournament,” said the GB coach.
“The coaches of all the teams in the last eight know they will have two shots at getting a medal if they get to the semis.
“Because even if you are unsuccessful in the semi-finals you get the shot at the bronze, so the importance of this next game is very high.”
