The first match by a Great Britain men's team for 41 years will be an Olympic warm-up game against Brazil at Middlesbrough on July 20, the Football Association have confirmed.

The match will see Stuart Pearce's side pitted against one of the favourites for the competition.

It will be part of a double-header at the Riverside Stadium with Team GB women's team, coached by Hope Powell, taking on Sweden before the men play Brazil.
