Great Britain lost to South Korea in a dramatic penalty shoot-out in the Olympic football tournament sending South Korea into a last four meeting with Brazil at Old Trafford on Tuesday.
Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge’s penalty was saved by substitute keeper Lee Bumyoung as GB lost the shoot-out 5-4 in Cardiff.
In the other match, Leandro Damiao helped Brazil to qualify into the Olympic semi-finals as Brazil survived a major scare against nine-man Honduras with a narrow 3-2 win.
In other fixtures, Mexico survived a stunning Senegal comeback as they won a Wembley thriller 4-2 during extra time to reach their first Olympic semi-final since 1968.
Mexico took a two-goal lead with just over 20 minutes remaining but Tottenham misfit Giovani dos Santos and substitute Hector Herrera punished horrible extra-time errors to set up a clash with Japan and a guaranteed medal match.
In another clash, Japan beat Egypt 3-0 to advance to the semi-finals of the men’s football tournament at the London 2012 Olympics.
Egypt trailed 1-0 to a goal from Kensuke Nagai, and were reduced to ten men just before the break when Saad Samir was sent off. Japan added to their tally with strikes from Maya Yoshida and Yuki Otsu.
