Two Tottenham Hotspur players have been selected in the Team GB football squad for the Olympic Games.
It would have been three if Gareth Bale had not picked up an injury, so it’s left to Steven Caulker and Danny Rose to fly the flag for Spurs.
Team GB will play Senegal, UAE and Uruguay in their group games as they compete in the competition for the first time since 1960.
The team will play a friendly against Brazil in Middlesbrough on 20 July and their opening Olympic fixture is against Senegal at Old Trafford on 26 July.
Squad: J Allen (Swansea), C Bellamy (Liverpool), R Bertrand (Chelsea), J Butland (Birmingham), S Caulker (Tottenham), T Cleverley (Manchester United), J Cork (Southampton), C Dawson (West Brom), R Giggs (Manchester United), A Ramsey (Arsenal), M Richards (Manchester City), D Rose (Tottenham), S Sinclair (Swansea), M Sordell (Bolton), J Steele (Middlesbrough), D Sturridge (Chelsea), N Taylor (Swansea), J Tomkins (West Ham)
