Pearce 'honoured' to coach Team GB
- From the section Olympics
Stuart Pearce reveals he is "honoured to be asked" to coach the Great Britain men's football team at the London 2012 Olympics.
Pearce, capped 78 times for England, cites his experience of playing on home soil at Euro 96, and is hoping "the excitement of the tournament" can "generate something special".
The former Manchester City and current England Under-21s manager says he aims to select a squad "from all the home nations" but would not be drawn on whether or not David Beckham will be involved, with just three players over the age of 23 allowed in each 18-man squad.
