Beckham 'determined' to make Team GB squad - LA Galaxy's Arena

LA Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena insists that David Beckham is intent on making the Team Great Britain Olympic squad.

The 37-year old midfielder was watched by Team GB coach Stuart Pearce in the Galaxy's 1-0 loss to New York Red Bulls and failed to impress but Arena says he is desperate to represent his nation at this summer's Olympic Games in his home city of London.

"David is determined to make the Olympic squad. It's very important to him. He's passionate about it and is working hard towards it. I'm sure he can make it," Arena said.

"His form has been good and we had Stuart Pearce out here to see him play but he, like the rest of the team, needs things to go his way so he can get back towards being at the top of his game."
