Ryan Giggs got his goal and Britain got a 3-1 win over the United Arab Emirates to keep its Olympic title dreams going. With Prince William and David Beckham watching on, too. The 38-year-old Giggs capped a nifty buildup with a 16th-minute opener to become the oldest scorer at the games, which is also the Welshman's first major tournament. Rashed Eisa nearly spoiled the party for 82,239 fans at Wembley Stadium with an equalizer at the hour mark. But Giggs' replacement, Scott Sinclair, scored in the 73rd before Daniel Sturridge's perfect lob capped what turned out to be an emphatic win. With Beckham and British royalty watching on, the hosts joined Senegal atop Group A with four points to eliminate the UAE. Uruguay has three points.
