While David Beckham was the face of Great Britian's Olympic bid, Jack Rodwell was the poster boy for the mens Team GB football team.
He modelled the the Stella McCartney designed Adidas Team GB strip last year and has been part of many of the poster campaigns surrounding the British team which will be involved in the games.
He was desperate to be included in the squad after missing out on England's Euro 2012 campaign and was expected by many to line-up alongside the likes of Aaron Ramsey and Gareth Bale this summer, but just like former England captain David Beckham, it would seem that Rodwell has had the call from Stuart Pearce informing him that his services will not be required this summer, according to the Independent.
The news isn't likely to receive quite the same headlines as David Beckham's omission from the squad, but it should please Everton gaffer David Moyes who had suggested that Rodwell should use the summer for recuperation following a number of hamstring injuries which he suffered during the season.
