Team GB Men's captain Ryan Giggs kick-started his team into action against UAE on Sunday night with the opening goal and has immediately turned his attention to the crucial Group A decider against Uruguay on Wednesday.
Taking place in Cardiff, the city where Giggs was born, Stuart Pearce's men know that if they avoid defeat against the South Americans, it will be enough to secure their place in the Olympic quarter final.
And Giggs believes Sunday's win at Wembley is a timely boost to the squad's morale and confidence as the knock-out stages loom for Team GB.
"It was a very important win, especially after the Senegal result and the pressure was on," said the Manchester United legend.
"I'm still disappointed not to play in a World Cup, a Euros or a major tournament and now this is something I'm relishing.
Fellow GB goalscorer Daniel Sturridge, who was suffering from viral meningitis in the build-up to the competition, added: "It was good to score.
"The fans have been fantastic. It has been a difficult few weeks for myself, but I am slowly getting there. I am not at my peak and I don't feel as I want to, but it's good to be playing and I'm getting fitter with each game.
"We've only played three games together, but we are getting to know each other better in training and it is showing on the pitch."
Now it's on to Cardiff where the team will play in front of a Welsh audience and for the likes of Giggs and his fellow Welshmen Joe Allen, Neil Taylor, Craig Bellamy and Aaron Ramsey. it will be a special occasion.
"It will mean a lot to all of the Welsh lads to play in our own stadium, our own back yard so it will be a great occasion," he added.
"I hope the fans will get behind us as they have in our first two games."
