Sunderland striker and Team GB hopeful Fraizer Campbell hopes footballers from outside England take part in the London 2012 Olympic Games.

The Scottish, Northern Irish and Welsh football associations have discouraged their players from participating, fearful of losing their independent status within FIFA.

Campbell told Sky Sports News: "It would mean everything (to me), there has not been a GB team for a long, long time and so I'd be delighted to be part of a team that competes in our home country, delighted to be a part of something as big as this. That's why it's Team GB, it's everyone in Britain coming together and performing as best we can to win things as a nation."
