If Great Britain were to pool all of their national players, who would make the starting line-up?

Here GMS conjures up a potential four-nations dream-team.

Gk: Alan Mcgregor – Scotland – Besiktas

While this would surprise many, Joe Hart has been in horrific form, and Alan Mcgregor is definitely a suitable replacement.


Right-back: Glen Johnson – England – Liverpool

Fast and and powerful, Glen Johnson is the strongest candidate for this role.


Centre-back: Phil Jagielka – England – Everton

A very solid defender, Phil Jagielka is a player you can rely on.


Centre-back: Ashley Williams – Wales – Swansea

Composed on the ball, fast and strong in the air, Ashley Williams might not be the obvious choice - but he is the best choice.


Left-back: Leighton Baines – England – Everton

A better option than the ageing Ashley Cole, Baines is fast, a great crosser and great from the dead ball.


Defensive-midfield: Darren Fletcher – Scotland – Manchester United

If the Scot can get back to full fitness, then he would be invaluable to a Team GB.


Defensive-midfield: Micheal Carrick – England – Manchester United

He would compliment Darren Fletcher perfectly. Micheal Carrick is a definite regular.


Right-wing: Daniel Sturridge – England – Liverpool

Fast, strong and lethal in front of goal, Daniel Sturridge would offer a great goal scoring threat.


Left-wing: Gareth Bale – Wales – Real Madrid

The most expensive player in the world, Gareth Bale would be the main man in the Team GB squad.


Attacking-midfield: Wayne Rooney – England – Manchester United

An obvious choice in the starting 11, Wayne Rooney wouldn’t play as an out and out striker for Team GB, instead linking the play in a more withdrawn role.


Striker: Steven Fletcher – Scotland – Sunderland

Steven fletcher is a potent finisher, and would lead the line brilliantly for Team GB.
