Two Tottenham Hotspur players start, while some potential Tottenham Hotspur targets are involved as well. Why not have a live thread party for this one? The Brazil and Great Britain Olympic football teams are playing a tune-up match at the Riverside Stadium in Middlesborough, which I recall being very nice and very large. Their team used to be fun too. Way to go, Gareth Southgate.

Great Britain Lineup (4-3-3): Jason Steele; Ryan Bertrand, Micah Richards, James Tomkins, Neil Taylor; Joe Allen, Ryan Giggs, Tom Cleverley; Danny Rose, Daniel Sturridge, Craig Bellamy

Brazil Lineup (4-2-3-1): Rafael Cabral; Marcelo, Juan, Thiago Silva, Rafael; Sandro, Romulo; Neymar, Oscar, Hulk; Leandro Damiao

Bolded are your two Tottenham players. Keep an eye on Leandro Damiao, who might come to us someday, and Daniel Sturridge, who could be a realistic transfer target. Steven Caulker is on the bench.

Kickoff is at 2:45 p.m. ET, 7:45 p.m. local time. You can catch the game on ESPN3 in the USA and BBC One in the UK.
