Team GB duo targeted by Welsh fans


Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey were barracked by a number of Wales fans as the players left Cardiff City Stadium following the 4-1 win over Norway, the Football Association of Wales have confirmed.

Captain Ramsey and winger Bale, who scored the opener, have courted controversy by appearing in promotional images for a Team GB supporter shirt. The FAW do not wish their players to be involved in Stuart Pearce's squad for the London Olympics as they fear it will have a detrimental effect on their status as an independent footballing nation.

The players' names were applauded when they were read out ahead of kick-off, although a "No Team GB" banner was briefly unfurled at one end of the ground. However, a group of fans made their feelings known to the pair as they boarded the team bus outside the stadium following the game.
