Great Britain boss Stuart Pearce will not be making a complaint to FIFA about Gareth Bale's withdrawal from Olympic duty with a back injury.

Bale was not selected in Pearce's 18-man squad after reporting that he would not be fit enough to take part. Yet, with GB set to take on Senegal in their opening game at Old Trafford on Thursday, the 23-year-old played and scored for his club Tottenham in their pre-season match with the Los Angeles Galaxy in the United States on Tuesday.

It immediately led to a string of complaints, with former Wales skipper Robbie Savage and England striker Gary Lineker expressing their surprise at Bale's presence on Tottenham's tour. However, Pearce is eager to maintain his focus on Thursday evening's game.
