Gareth Bale Models Great Britain Olympic Football Shirt: Photo

Wales and Tottenham Hotspur winger Gareth Bale has caused a bit of controversy after modeling the supporters shirt for the Great Britain 2012 Olympics football team.

The issues are:

  1. The Welsh FA (and Scottish FA) don’t want players from their nations participating on the Great Britain team because they feel it’ll undermine their power with FIFA, and
  2. The teams haven’t been picked yet, so there’s no guarantee that Bale would be selected (although if they can find a way to get past the Welsh FA, then Bale would be one of the first names picked).
Whether the British football associations figure out a solution in time for next summer, we’ll have to wait and see. But for the time being, at least we can ogle what the supporters shirt looks like. The actual shirt worn by the footballers will be different.
