Gb 1/3 To Not Take Part In 2016 Olympics Football

More penalty heartache for followers of British football and William Hill are offering 1/3 that they do not take part in the 2016 Games (9/4 that they do).

“There was a lot of discussion before these Games as to whether Team GB would take part and considering they have only played five games together, the project could be deemed a success, but despite that, it appears a 2016 reunion is pretty much out of the question,” said Hill’s spokesman Joe Crilly.

The Come Beck Kid 7/2 To Fulfil Olympic Dream

Stuart Pearce may have not selected David Beckham for the 18 man Olympics football squad but he has hinted that he may well be on the stand by list. He is 7/2 with William Hill to play at the games.

If selected on the stand by list Beckham could only take the place of Ryan Giggs, Craig Bellamy or Micah Richards due to the restrictions of over age players. Golden Balls is 8/1 to score this summer and it is 14/1 that it is from a free kick. Even more remarkable would be if he captained the team. That is offered at 12/1 with Hills.

“Becks playing at the Olympics would be remarkable even to his own standards. It was a shock to see him omitted from the squad but would be even more shocking if he were to come back. No one wants to play for their country more than Beckham and it would be really good to see him represent Team GB this summer,” said William Hill spokesman Mark Young.

7/2: Beckham to play at the Olympics

8/1: Beckham to score at the Olympics

12/1: Beckham to be GB captain

14/1: Beckham to score a free kick at the Olympics

*All of the specials are ‘All in run or not,’ so no money back if Beckham doesn’t go to the Olympics
