Adam Johnson, Ryan Bennett, Alex McCarthy and Jordan Rhodes are the four players named on stand-by for Team GB at the Olympics.

  • Adam Johnson: Waits for possible late call
  • Ryan Bennett: Could get call if defence hit by an injury 
  • Alex McCarthy: Goalkeeper on stand-by 
  • Jordan Rhodes: Waiting game in attack 

The official squad lists were confirmed by FIFA on Friday, and each country has four on stand-by.

Great Britain's list was confirmed as Pearce named Reading goalkeeper McCarthy, Norwich defender Bennett, Manchester City midfielder Johnson and Huddersfield striker Rhodes.

As expected there was no over-age player named and no place for David Beckham.
