Giggs, Bellamy and Richards selected in 18-man Team GB squad

The Manchester United ace, City defender and Liverpool forward have been called up by Stuart Pearce for their Olympic campaign, which begins on July 26 against Senegal
Stuart Pearce has announced his 18-man squad that will represent Team GB at this summer's Olympic Games.

The manager also revealed his three 'over-age' players earlier in the week, as he included Craig Bellamy, Ryan Giggs and Micah Richards. David Beckham, however, was reportedly omitted to make up for a lack of defensive options.

The final squad is as follows:

Goalkeepers: Jack Butland, Jason Steele

Defenders: Micah Richards, Ryan Bertrand, Steven Caulker, Craig Dawson, Neil Taylor, James Tomkins

Midfielders: Joe Allen, Ryan Giggs, Tom Cleverley, Jack Cork, Aaron Ramsey, Danny Rose

Strikers: Craig Bellamy, Scott Sinclair, Marvin Sordell, Daniel Sturridge

The squad kick off their campaign against Senegal at the end of the month. Their next Group A game is against United Arab Emirates on July 29 at Wembley, before they face Uruguay at the Millennium Stadium three days later.

Fans will get the chance to preview the Team GB team in a warm-up fixture with Brazil at the Riverside Stadium on July 20.
