Former Yeovil Town loanee Steven Caulker continued his development on the big stage tonight, as he made his debut for the Team GB side. In a match against Brazil at the Riverside Stadium, Caulker was introduced at half time as a substitute for West Ham United centre-back James Tomkins.
Caulker played the whole of the second half in the centre of defence, with the Great Britain side playing out a goalless second period. However, the damage had already been done during the first half, with Stuart Pearce's side having already conceding twice to the Brazilians. The game is being used as a warm-up friendly for the London 2012 Olympics - the first time a Great Britain side has competed or qualified for the Olympic Games since 1960.
