Wayne Rooney – an Olympian?

OK so yesterday Wayne Rooney was banned by UEFA for the first three games of Euro 2012. The debate raged, do we take him, do we not take him?

Here’s an idea I’ve seen no-one put forward yet. Euro 2012 isn’t the only tournament being played next summer. We are actually hosting one too, the second most important worldwide football tournament.

I’m talking, of course, about the Olympics. The football competition at the Olympics is played with squads of players under the age of 23, with three over-age players in the squad. How about leaving Wayne at home when England head to Poland and Ukraine, and having him take one of the over-age spots to lead the line for Team GB in London?
