DAVID BECKHAM is odds on with Ladbrokes to be included in the Team GB Olympic squad after Stuart Pearce was named boss yesterday.
The bookies rate the home nations side 8-1 to win gold and it's 12-1 they win every game before being crowned.
Beckham is 20-1 to be the first player to score a GB Olympic goal and it's 8-1 the home team win a silver medal next summer.
Hope Powell's women's side are 10-1 chances for a gold medal and optimistic patriots can take 100-1 about a men's/women's gold double.
Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes said: “Olympic football hasn't been a big event for us historically but that looks set to change. The presence of Beckham will give turnover a further boost and we can safely say now a Team GB Gold will be a terrible result.”
