Pearce names GB squad

Published Add your comment

Five Welsh and 13 English players have been selected for Great Britain's men's Olympic football squad for London 2012.

Team GB manager Stuart Pearce has not picked any Scottish or Northern Irish players for the tournament. The announcement of the squad confirmed that David Beckham has missed out with Ryan Giggs, Craig Bellamy and Micah Richards named as the three over-age players allowed - all the others have to be under 23.

Swansea have three players named, the most of any club - Scott Sinclair, Joe Allen and Neil Taylor, while Tottenham defender Steven Caulker, who has also been included, was on loan at the Liberty Stadium last season.
