Ryan Giggs scores Olympic goal for Britain

With Prince William and David Beckham watching, Britain won its

first men’s soccer match at the London Olympics with a 3-1 victory

over the United Arab Emirates on Sunday.

Ryan Giggs, playing in his first major tournament, scored the

opening goal in the 16th minute to become the oldest goalscorer at

the games.

Rashed Eisa equalized in front of 82,239 fans at Wembley

Stadium, but Scott Sinclair scored in the 73rd and Daniel Sturridge

added another in the 76th.

Britain now has four points in Group A, the same as Senegal. The

UAE is eliminated.
