DID YOU KNOW THAT DAVID BECKMAN DID NOT MAKE THE BRITAIN'S OLYMPIC SOCCER TEAM?
David Beckham says he has failed to make the British Olympic football squad.
"Everyone knows how much playing for my country has always meant to me, so I would have been honored to have been part of this unique Team GB squad," Beckham said Thursday in a statement to The Associated Press. "Naturally I am very disappointed, but there will be no bigger supporter of the team than me. And like everyone, I will be hoping they can win the gold."
Beckham had been heavily favored to be in the squad after being instrumental in helping Sebastian Coe, the head of the London organizing committee, and his team win the rights to stage the games in the 2005 vote.
