Remember all that fuss about a Great British Olympic football team back in 2012? It seems a long time ago now, best evidenced by the fact that Stuart Pearce was deemed worthy of being the side's manager.

It now seems likely that a British team will compute in 2016 and the good folk at WhoScored have wisely used statistics rather than Stuart Pearce to pick a side based on this season's performances.

All in all it's a pretty tasty side, if rather attacking in a 'Garth Crooks team of the week' way. Eyebrows will be raised at Rob Green being picked in goal, but a back four of Callum Chambers, John Stones, James Tomkins and Ben Davies looks decent.

In midfield, Jack Rodwell and James Ward-Prowse are paired and ahead of them Gareth Bale, Raheem Sterling and Alex Oxlade Chamberlain form a mouth-watering trio behind the lone striker Harry Kane.
