Great Britain's Olympic dreams suffered an unexpected setback at Old Trafford tonight as Moussa Konate's late equaliser for Senegal saw the match end 1-1.
Craig Bellamy put the hosts in front with a clinical volley early in the contest.
But Stuart Pearce's men were then pushed onto the back foot by the Africans' ultra-physical approach, which largely went unpunished by Uzbek referee Ravshan Irmatov.
Still, it did seem GB had weathered the worst until Konate struck eight minutes from time.
The hosts pushed forward frantically in search of a winner but they came no nearer than a Marvin Sordell effort that crashed against the bar.
And the greatest damage could yet be felt in the dressing room, with both Bellamy and Joe Allen needing to be checked after sustaining worrying knocks.
