David Beckham Left Off British Olympic Soccer Team

David Beckham attends an L.A. Galaxy training session on Thursday (June 28) in Los Angeles.

Earlier in the day, news broke that the 37-year-old soccer star was not included in the British Olympic soccer squad for this summer’s London games.

“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,” David said in a statement (via CNN).

“Naturally I am very disappointed,” he added, “but there will be no bigger supporter of the team than me and like everyone, I will be hoping they can win the gold.”
