Just had a look at the team GB roster, and honestly... what in the fresh hell?? With so much talent in the UK, it’s baffling and disappointing (but not wholly surprising) that so many incredible players have been overlooked. I’m sure the selection process is difficult, but when there’s no representation for one of 4 national teams in contention- what’s the point?
Lots of players left off that really should’ve been no brainers when making up a squad like this one, imo, and it’s a shame that they haven’t been given a chance for this round of the olympics.
I’m devastated for players like Erin Cuthbert, Hayley Ladd, Rachel Furness, Claire Emslie, Simone Magill, Tash Harding, Angharad James, and Jane Ross- who have been absolutely stand out for both club and country for so long. It would’ve been great to see them in Tokyo, and certainly would’ve rounded out the team and given us some more really dynamic, interesting games. Especially bizarre to see players like Jess Fishlock, Rachel Corsie, and Jordan Nobbs, who have so much experience being left off the roster... gotta wonder what kind of thought process went into that decision
