Jump to navigation Jump to search

The following is a list of squads for each nation competing in men's football at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. Each nation must submit a squad of 18 players, 15 of whom must be born on or after 1 January 1989, and three of whom can be older dispensation players.[1] A minimum of two goalkeepers (plus one optional dispensation goalkeeper) must be included in the squad.

Group A[edit]

Great Britain[edit]

The following is the Great Britain squad in the men's football tournament of the 2012 Summer Olympics.[2]

As part of an agreement with the FA, no players from England's Euro 2012 squad were selected. However, an agreement was made to allow Jack Butland to play on both squads. Butland, a late injury replacement for the Euro 2012 team, did not play in the tournament as England's third goalkeeper, and was allowed to keep his Olympic roster spot.
