Premiership legends interested in British Olympic football team

David Beckham and Ryan Giggs have indicated they wish to be considered for the British men's team at the London 2012 Olympics.

The duo are among 184 of 191 players contacted by the Football Association of which only seven have ruled themselves out.

British Olympic Association communications director Darryl Seibel said: "This is an outstanding response and it confirms what we have believed all along, which is there is widespread interest among players in competing for Team GB at the London 2012 Games.

"Clearly, the players recognise just how special this opportunity is."
Players who wanted to be in the Team GB Player Pool, from which coach Stuart Pearce will pick his squad for the Olympics, did not need to provide a written response to the FA.
