Former Everton legend Southall dead-against Team GB

Former Everton keeper and proud Welshman Neville Southall is against the idea of a Great Britain Olympic team. "I don't see the point," said Southall, who won a record 92 caps for his country.

"You will just lose the identity of all the teams. The whole point of going to the Olympics is that special moment when your flag goes up.

"What flag are they going to put up if they win it? The Union Jack? It's not my flag. My flag's a dragon.

"As a Welshman I'd rather play for Wales if I was in the Olympics. I would want to go and represent my country."

Southall also believes club managers will be against the idea.

"If I've got a player who is worth £10million, why would I want somebody kicking lumps out of him at the Olympics?" he added.
