Goodison Park star joins Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey.
Jack Rodwell, who was called into Fabio Capello’s senior squad, has become the first England player to be photographed in a Team GB commemorative Olympics shirt.
The Everton midfielder, who is now in the squad for the friendlies against Spain and Sweden, follows Wales internationals Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey in being pictured in the shirt.
The shirt is not the official Team GB football kit – that will be launched next year – but is a ‘limited edition commemorative shirt’ created by adidas, the official sportswear partner for London 2012 Olympics.
Rodwell appeared certain to be included in the Olympics squad – having been a regular for the England U21s, whose manager Stuart Pearce is also the Olympics team head coach.
But the 20-year-old’s call-up for the seniors has thrown his participation in doubt as he now may be included in the Euro 2012 squad.
The Football Association are expected to announce that players who play in the tournament in Poland and Ukraine do not play in the Olympics, to appease Premier League clubs who are worried about burn out.
