Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley is excited about Team GB's Olympics chances.

Cleverley insists there is enough ability in Stuart Pearce’s squad to challenge for a medal.

He said: “There is everything in this squad — youth, experience, enthusiasm, speed, technical ability and a good manager.

“There is no reason why we can’t do well.

“It is a strong tournament but if we work hard and turn up on the day, I am sure we will be amongst the medals.”

Cleverley is fit after injuries last term wrecked an impressive start to his senior United career.

He added: “To be back playing is all I want to do. It is all I work for. Being back for the Olympics makes it even sweeter.”
