[SCOREBOARD] The parity in the men's soccer competition at the London Olympics was evident on the first day as four games ended in ties and the other four were decided by one goal. Host Great Britain had to settle for a 1-1 tie with Senegal when Moussa Konate equalized for the Lions of Taranga eight minutes from time. Brazil was cruising along with a 3-0 lead thanks to goals by Rafael, Leandro Damiao and Neymar after only 30 minutes, but Egypt rallied for two late goals to make the final score 3-2. Mexico's Olympic campaign got off to a sluggish start as it had to settle for a 0-0 tie with South Korea. For all the results, complete schedule and viewing information ...

    The refereeing for the GB vs. Senegal match was terrible. Senegal should of had at least 3 if not 4 players sent off the field during this game for consistant harsh fouling, consistency is needed here amoung the ref's.

    I'm not a ref and I didn't see the entire match but the one foul late on Bellamy amazed me that it didn't draw a straight red. Then to find out the Senegal player already had a yellow and didn't get a 2nd amazed me even more. If that ref gets another game, it's pretty outrageous. By the way, not a Brit fan here, just a neutral who prefers to watch football and not rugby; apparently the ref is not a historian and doesn't realize the two games diverged over this exact foul, hacking. Bellamy is lucky he didn't lose a season to that 'tackle'.
