Chelsea ace Sturridge eyeing Team GB involvement

Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge admits he would love to be a part of the Great Britain Olympic football team.

Team GB is prepping for this summer's London Games and 22-year old Sturridge says he sees it as a great opportunity to get a good group of U23 players together to take on the rest of the world.

"Definitely, without a doubt," he told the club's official website.

"It's the type of opportunity that only comes along once in a lifetime.

"It's the first time Great Britain have had a team competing in the football tournament and obviously we are the home nation, so it would be a chance to make history.

"My focus for this summer is on the European Championships but generally speaking, the Olympics is a great event.

"I think it's an interesting prospect for any player and if you get a chance to take part then you will take it.

"You always want to be involved in big events and if you get the opportunity that's great.

"I think they will do great. I know the likes of Aaron Ramsey and Gareth Bale have already said they want to take part, so to have players like that mixed in with the top English, Irish and Scottish talent should make for a brilliant occasion."
