David Beckham’s dream of Olympic participation was given a boost after he was included in Britain’s 35-man squad.
The announcement of Stuart Pearce’s final 18-man squad will be made on July 6 and Beckham, if confirmed in the final squad, would appear as one of three permitted overage players.
Ryan Giggs, Craig Bellamy, Rio Ferdinand and Frank Lampard have also been mentioned as potential candidates.
Beckham’s name has been a constant though, mainly due to the influential role he played in getting the Olympics.
