Team GB face the risk of incurring the wrath of the Welsh FA once more after West Ham midfielder Jack Collison was targeted for a call-up to the Olympic Games squad, according to The Sun.

The FAW have been reluctant to agree to their own players being called up for this summer’s London games as they fear it could significantly impact on their autonomy at FIFA and their international independence in football.

However, while the FAW are not in favour of Team GB, ultimately, the choice has been left up to the individual players.

Collison, 23, along with Wales team-mates Aaron Ramsey and Gareth Bale as well as West Ham colleagues Mark Noble and James Tomkins, have been named in the provisional squad.

Ramsey and Bale sparked controversy last year when they featured in promotional photos for the official Team GB jersey.
