WILLIAM HILL rate Team GB & NI as 8-1 shots to win gold at the 2012 Olympics.

The bookies think at least 12 squad members will be English and it is there are more Scottish players than Welsh (5-4).

The current favourite to manage the team is Gareth Southgate at 7-2 with Martin O’Neill 7-1 and David Beckham 20-1.

Meanwhile, Beckham will take charge of the newly-formed team according to Ladbrokes.
He's their 7-4 favourite ahead of Stuart Pearce (7-2), David Moyes (6-1) and Kevin Keegan (20-1).

It's 5-1 the team win gold and Jack Wilshere is 9-2 to wear the captain's armband for the first game.

The Scottish Football Association are up in arms over the plans and McBookie.com offer 10-1 on a Scot representing the team.

McBookie.com spokesman Paul Petrie said: “Despite assurances from FIFA, there is always the chance a Team GB could have an impact on the Scottish national team and we think that risk would be too big to persuade a Scot to take part.

“We certainly hope this is a price we have correct as we are very much in the No Team GB camp.”
