Gary Neville admits he understands Team GB coach Stuart Pearce's decision to leave David Beckham out of his squad for the Olympics.

The former England captain, a close friend and former Manchester United team-mate of Neville, failed to get one of the three over-age places in the squad.

"We live in a man's world. You have to front up when you get disappointments," Neville said in the Daily Star.
