"With Joe Hart doing so well in the England team, my chances might be few and far between in the future. But the Olympics would be a good opportunity for me to play international football."

United's Olympic XI

Ben Amos revealed in ManUtd.com's exclusive webchat this week that he is interested in representing Great Britain at the Olympics.

As he was born after 1 January 1989, the young goalkeeper fits the age criteria for the core of the squad. The coach Stuart Pearce will also be able to select three over-aged players.

It got us thinking about picking a side purely based on United players and even if we ignore the possibility of Reds being among the over-aged players - for example, Ryan Giggs - we could still field a pretty strong line-up.

United's Olympic XI: Ben Amos; Michael Keane, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Ezekiel Fryers; Larnell Cole, Tom Cleverley, Ryan Tunnicliffe, Jesse Lingard; Danny Welbeck, Will Keane.

Substitutes: Oliver Norwood, Scott Wootton, John Cofie, Luke Giverin, Tom Thorpe, Reece Brown.

Which of United's players do you think will be called up to take part in the Games? Have your say on our Talking Reds message board.
