Stuart Pearce Names 18-Man Team GB Football Squad for Summer Olympics

Stuart Pearce has named his 18-man squad for the Team GB football squad to play in the 2012 Summer Olympics.

After last week’s news that David Beckham would not be included in the squad, the attention has switched to focus on the youngsters — and a few older footballers — who will be flying the British flag at the Summer Olympics.

The 18-man Team GB football squad is as follows:

  • Joe Allen (Swansea City)
  • Craig Bellamy (Liverpool)
  • Ryan Bertrand (Chelsea)
  • Jack Butland (Birmingham City)
  • Steven Caulker (Tottenham Hotspur)
  • Tom Cleverley (Manchester United)
  • Jack Cork (Southampton)
  • Craig Dawson (West Bromwich Albion)
  • Ryan Giggs (Manchester United)
  • Aaron Ramsey (Arsenal)
  • Micah Richards (Manchester City)
  • Danny Rose (Tottenham Hotspur)
  • Scott Sinclair (Swansea City)
  • Marvin Sordell (Bolton Wanderers)
  • Jason Steele (Middlesbrough)
  • Daniel Sturridge (Chelsea)
  • Neil Taylor (Swansea City)
  • James Tomkins (West Ham United)

Out of all the teams represented, Swansea City has the most players represented (3). The 18-man Great Britain football squad is comprised mostly of Premier League footballers, in addition to a few footballers from Championship sides. Goalkeeper Jack Butland will be in the nets, with Jason Steele as the back-up goalkeeper.

The men’s football matches at the Summer Olympics begin on July 26, 2012 when Great Britain plays Senegal at Old Trafford.

Other than Senegal, Team GB will play UAE and Uruguay in their group games, where they’ll be competing in the competition for the first time since 1960.
