Manchester United veteran Paul Scholes is disappointed for former teammate David Beckham over his Team GB omission.

British coach Stuart Pearce caused a major stir by leaving out ex-Reds midfielder Beckham, despite including the LA Galaxy superstar in his original plans.

"It's a shame about Becks," said Scholes. "It's surprising as well, after everything David did to help London get the Olympics. That's Stuart Pearce's decision, but I feel sorry for David as I'm sure he'd have loved to have played in it."
