The Football Association have reacted swiftly to confirm no player selected for Euro 2012 will be picked for the Great Britain Olympic team later this summer.

GB coach Stuart Pearce trimmed his squad to 80 players earlier this week. However, in noting that he could potentially lose 10 players to the Games, including Spain's David De Gea and Javier Hernandez, who is set to be picked by Mexico, Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has expressed his displeasure, claiming it will leave his pre-season plans in chaos.

The FA have tried to calm such concerns, outlining the selection policy that will frame Pearce's Olympic squad, and Club England managing director Adrian Bevington said: "Any player who travels to Euro 2012 with England will not be considered for the Olympic GB team. This position has not changed."
