Beckham in Pearce's 2012 plans
Friday 25 November 2011
Stuart Pearce has admitted David Beckham could be involved in the 2012 Olympics. The coach of the British team, when asked about the inclusion of the former England captain yesterday, said: "He's certainly on a long list of people, yes." Olympic rules state countries can select a maximum of three players over the age of 23 and Beckham has already expressed his desire to take part.
Pearce said: "We're in the process of putting a long list out which can be added to in due course. [Players] will have to sign a form putting forward their participation within that and putting themselves forward for selection so the clubs will be aware very shortly of who is on that list."
