Bellamy doubts a future for GB team

Published Add your comment

Craig Bellamy believes the notion of a Great Britain Olympic football team will be put back in cold storage once this summer's competition is over.

Stuart Pearce's side take on Uruguay in Cardiff on Wednesday night needing to avoid defeat to secure a quarter-final berth. That would give further strength to a belief that GB should continue, providing a way can be found to navigate a complicated qualification criteria, but Bellamy knows there are significant political obstacles to overcome.

And he does not believe they will, as he said: "I am sure it would be beneficial and I would love to see it happen again. From my own experience, it has been outstanding, one of the best experiences I have had as a footballer. But I this is probably the last time it will happen, which would be a shame."
