English FA plan to enter teams in Tokyo Olympics

The English FA plan to enter a team for the Tokyo Olympics.

The Daily Mail says the FA are preparing to accommodate all requests from Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland in an attempt to field men's and women's Team GB football teams at Tokyo 2020.

A breakfast meeting in Athens between the four home nations before the UEFA Congress at least agreed to keep a dialogue going, which is enough slim incentive for the FA to do all they can to keep the Olympic football dream alive.

One of the traditions that most upsets the Celtic nations is that of England holding the football representative position on the British Olympic Association in perpetuity. But the FA are prepared to stand down immediately so that post can be shared around the four countries.
