DAVID LUIZ MISSES OLYMPIC CUT

Posted on: Fri 06 Jul 2012

David Luiz will not be involved in the 2012 Olympics having not made the Brazil squad after it was reduced to 18 players.

The 25-year-old was named in an initial list of 35 players at the end of last month but is not one of his nation's three over-age players involved in what is largely an Under-23 tournament.

Daniel Sturridge and Ryan Bertrand are the two Chelsea players definitely part of an Olympic squad (TeamGB) with Juan Mata and Oriol Romeu in Spain's 22-man squad which is yet to be cut down to the final 18.
