"THE four home nations today struck a deal which would allow an England football team to represent Great Britain at the London 2012 Olympics.
A joint letter from the four associations was sent to FIFA this morning saying Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland would have no involvement in the Olympic tournament but would not prevent an England team from doing so.
The deal will have to be ratified by FIFA before it is officially confirmed.
As revealed by PA Sport last night, last-ditch talks between the Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish FAs yesterday led to a breakthrough in the long-running saga.
A source at one of the three associations told PA Sport: “All four associations have signed a letter of intent and that has gone off to FIFA.
“The letter says that we, the three home nations other than England, have not changed our stance but as England are hosting the Games we believe it is possible for them to play under their own auspices."
...everybody happy with that?!
Apparently not. Christine Grahame has ever so slightly over-reacted, I'm sure the SFA will treat her resignation demands with the respect they deserve.
