David Beckham campaigns again for Olympic team‎

On July 1, Becks will find out if he is part of the team from Great Britain this summer in London. Great Britain hasn’t even qualified for Olympic soccer since 1960 but the host nation gets an automatic bid. A soccer team can only carry three players older than 23 on its roster, and Beckham is hoping to be one of them.

“I would love to be on the Olympic team,’’ Beckham told NBC’s Meredith Vieira in a wide-ranging interview. “I’m very proud of what I’ve achieved in my career so far. I’ve obviously played for the national team for quite a few years, and now I want to represent the G.B. team in the Olympics.’’
