WEMBLEY, England -- Brazil will start its bid for a first men's Olympic gold medal against Egypt.
Brazil will face the Egyptians at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium on July 26, a day before the official opening of the London Games. The team also plays Belarus and New Zealand in Group C.
CONCACAF qualifying tournament champions Mexico were drawn in Group B, along with South Korea, Gabon and Switzerland.
In Group D, World Cup champion Spain was drawn with Honduras, Japan and Morocco.
Britain will start against Senegal. The hosts will also play the United Arab Emirates and Uruguay in Group A.
"Uruguay will be tough but I wouldn't dismiss anyone," Great Britain coach Stuart Pearce said of his team's draw, according to FIFA's website.
"The addition of three overage players can contribute to a really strong side. It will be tough, tournament football always is. Everyone in the squad will have star quality but I'll pick the squad on merit," Pearce said.
