Scotland's Kim Little keen on Team GB chance

One of Scotland's top women footballers has told BBC Scotland she will play for Team GB at the Olympics, if selected.

Arsenal's Kim Little says London 2012 presents a wonderful opportunity for all athletes.

"It's a one-off tournament and I'm British and Scottish, so, yes, I'd play," she said.

Her comments come despite the Scottish Football Association's repeated opposition to a British Olympic football team.

Little was speaking after Scotland's 7-2 friendly win over Finland at Tynecastle on Wednesday.

Jennifer Beattie and Jane Ross both scored twice in the final warm-up match before next month's Euro 2013 qualifiers, with Hayley Lauder, Rachel Corsie and an own goal giving the Scots revenge for a 1-0 loss in Helsinki on Sunday.

"We've got a lot of quality in our side and a lot of Scottish players could be in contention for an Olympic side," said Glasgow City's Corsie.

"But until anyone's asked or approached, I think we need to keep a low profile on the matter because it will take focus away from important matches we have for club and country."

Little's Arsenal team-mate Beattie added: "I don't have any information about the tournament at the moment.

"If I am approached, then I'll have a decision to make."
