Beckham fails to make Britain's Olympic squad

David Beckham says he has failed to make the British Olympic football squad.
The former England captain made Stuart Pearce's shortlist of 35 but was not selected for the final 18-man squad as one of three players over the age of 23 allowed to compete in the Olympics.
Beckham said Thursday in a statement to The Associated Press: "Everyone knows how much playing for my country has always meant to me. So I would have been honored to have been part of this unique Team GB squad."
He adds: "Naturally I am very disappointed, but there will be no bigger supporter of the team than me. And like everyone, I will be hoping they can win the gold."
