Team GB men swerve Brazil and Spain in Olympics draw
Great Britain's men's football team will avoid Brazil, Spain and Mexico in tomorrow's draw for the London 2012 Olympic tournament.
The four countries have been seeded for the 16-team tournament, which means they will be kept apart for the group stage of the competition.
FIFA's Olympic organising committee decided on the seedings, and the draw will also keep apart the European teams and the countries from Latin America.
Britain's women's team have also been seeded for their competition, involving 12 countries, along with the United States and Japan.
In the men's tournament, the Stuart Pearce-managed Team GB will be in Group A.
They will play group matches at Old Trafford, in Manchester, on Thursday July 26, Wembley Stadium on Sunday July 29 and the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff on Wednesday August 1.
Spain, who are seeded on the basis of their senior side being world champions, will play in Glasgow (Hampden Park - July 26), Newcastle (St James' Park - July 29) and Manchester (August 1).
Brazil are seeded as the "all-time top Olympic performer", despite never actually winning gold, and will be in Group C, playing at Cardiff (July 26), Old Trafford (July 29) and Newcastle (August 1).
Mexico are seeded as the highest-ranked country not from Europe or South America, and will be in Group B playing in Newcastle (July 26), Coventry (Ricoh Arena - July 29) and Cardiff (Aug 1).
The Great Britain women's team will begin the tournament on Wednesday July 25 - the first day of Olympic action - in Cardiff, followed by a second match at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday July 28.
Pot Two: Brazil (seeded), Uruguay, Mexico (seeded), Honduras.
Pot Three: Japan, South Korea, UAE, Oman or New Zealand
Pot Four: Egypt, Gabon, Morocco, Senegal or New Zealand.
The draw will create four groups of four countries, with one team from each pot. Seeds cannot be in the same group.
The women's draw will see three groups of four countries, headed by the three seeded teams.
The draw will also see the African teams (Cameroon and South Africa), Asian teams (Japan and North Korea) and North American teams (USA and Canada) placed in different groups.
