Reuters, LONDON

“I guess Andy [Hunt] is under a great deal of pressure from the London Olympic Games Organising Committee and the IOC to get tickets on sale for the football events,” Regan said.

Britain last competed with a men’s soccer team at Rome in 1960 and won gold medals in 1900, 1908 and 1912. A British women’s team has never taken part in an Olympic soccer tournament.
