Bale and Ramsey in Pearce's plans for 2012

Stuart Pearce, coach of Great Britain's Olympic football team, confirms that Welsh internationals Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey are in his plans despite the Football Association of Wales being opposed to their players featuring at the 2012 London Olympics.

The former England left back believes that the players are "desperate" to represent Team GB on home soil, which Pearce compares to his own experience of playing for England when the nation hosted the 1996 European Championships.
