David Beckham Too Old for The Olympics

37 year old David Beckham has reportedly been omitted from  the Great Britain Olympic football squad.

BBC sports reports that the former England captain was reportedly shortlisted but was overlooked for the final 18-man squad as one of three players over the age of 23 allowed to compete in the Olympics.

The team will begin their Olympic campaign against Senegal at Old Trafford on 26 July before facing the United Arab Emirates at Wembley on 29 July, and Uruguay at the Millennium Stadium on 1 August.
