The official design won’t be released until Spring 2012, but we will be among the first to reveal the inaugural Team GB football shirt. Historically, Great Britain home nations have stood by and watched other nations enjoy Olympic success. Given the home advantage, and the guaranteed hype surrounding the choice of manager and players then we’re expecting this adidas Team GB football kit to be at least as popular as the umbro England kit that will be worn during Euro 2012.
Argentina won in Beijing 2008 with a very young team, showcasing an impressive new crop of talent. Whether TeamGB will select with the same criteria remains to be seen, but it’s a tournament, and it’s here, so interest will be mandatory.
