Team GB squad announced
Stuart Pearce has confirmed his Team GB squad for the London Olympic Games, with Aaron Ramsey, Tom Cleverley and Daniel Sturridge among the names included.
It had emerged that Pearce would select Craig Bellamy, Ryan Giggs and Micah Richards as his over-aged players for the tournament, which is predominantly made up of players under the age of 23, while none of England's Euro 2012 squad were considered for selection.
Gareth Bale and Jack Wilshere had also been ruled out through injury.
"It has not been an easy task to finalise my squad for this tournament, and the stature of the competition and uniqueness of the occasion has underlined the importance of every choice I have made," Pearce said.
"With just 18 places it is very different from other international tournaments, the options are limited, but it is the Olympic Games and every player in this squad should be very proud they have a chance to compete for a gold medal on home soil.
"I remember the huge advantage we gained from playing in front of our own fans during Euro 96, and I'm sure with the nation behind us it could be a fantastic tournament for us."
The final squad features 13 Englishman and five Welshmen, with no Scottish or Northern Irish players making the cut.
