The ‘Great Britain X’ for the 2012 Olympics…well here’s mine anyway!

Whoever the New England manager proves to be and whatever squad he subsequently picks will play a hugely significant part in Stuart Pearce’s Team GB squad for the London Olympic Games that begin just 23 days after the Euros have concluded. With Team GB meeting up around two weeks before the opening game of the Olympics, that could leave a player with one weeks holiday throughout the whole summer if he is selected in both squads.

Even if a player does not feature heavily at the Euro’s they still shouldn’t be selected for the Olympics as playing football for 51 of the 52 weeks in a year is too much. So I have drawn up my side for the opening Team GB game at the Olympics and have taken all things into account.

The squad as a whole must have no more than three players over the age of 23 and can currently be selected from England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland but politics may mean that changes nearer to the date. So here is my Team GB starting 11.
