Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder David Beckham says playing for his country means a lot to him.
Beckham, 37, is hopeful of representing Great Britain in football at the 2012 London Olympics.
And the veteran, whose former clubs include Real Madrid and Manchester United, says all British athletes will be determined to do well at the 30th Olympic Games.
“Representing my country has been one of my proudest moments of my career for many years, and one of the things I have always been proud to be part of,” Beckham said.
“To be captain of my country was one of the biggest and best things I have ever done in my career. Playing 115 times was incredible but I have always loved representing England so it would be amazing (to play at the Olympics).
“Playing at home always comes with that expectation, but I also think it is going to spur our athletes on, to perform at home where there family is going to be, their friends are going to be, and every one of our athletes who is going to be performing is going to be so proud to be a part of this Olympics.
“They are going to want to do well, so without a doubt they will be more excited than anything else.”
