The Team GB men's football quarter final against South Korea in Cardiff on Saturday has sold out.

Around 70,000 will fill the Millennium Stadium for the second Olympic match in a row following GB's 1-0 win over Uruguay on Wednesday.

The football has led to a carnival atmosphere in the city since the GB women's team opened the entire Games last Friday.

England can never win on penalties. Can Great Britain do it?

Terrible penalty. Looks like GB will lose.

And Great Britain loses in the quarterfinals. On penalties. What else is new?
