Manchester United's up-and-coming young goalkeeper Ben Amos is pinning his hopes on a call up to the British Olympic team for the London 2012 Games.

Amos, 21, admits the presence of Joe Hart in the England team will limit his chances at international level, but he will be young enough to qualify for the Olympics, which is an under-23 tournament, although three over-age players are permitted per squad.

Amos told "With Joe Hart doing so well in the England team, potentially a candidate for the next captain of the team, chances might be few and far between in the future so the Olympics is a good opportunity to represent not just England but Great Britain at such a big event."
