• Stuart Pearce names Welshman as captain for Games
• 38-year-old has never played in international tournament
Stuart Pearce has confirmed that Ryan Giggs will be the captain of the Team GB men's football team at this summer's Olympics.
Despite never having played in a major international tournament with Wales, his credentials are impeccable, having won 12 Premier League titles, five FA Cups and two Champions Leagues with Manchester United. He also won 64 caps for Wales before retiring from international football in 2007.
"Obviously I have experience and there are a lot of younger players in this squad, as captain hopefully I can pass that on to the younger players," said Giggs.
Giggs' fellow Welshman Craig Bellamy and Manchester City's defender Micah Richards are the other two over-age players in the squad.
Team GB will play their first match in half a century when they take on Brazil at the Riverside Stadium on Friday 20 July. Read More
