London - Manchester United stalwart Ryan Giggs could finally make his debut at an international tournament at the London Olympics.

The most decorated player in British football history is under consideration for one of three overage player spots on Britain's Olympic football squad. The Welshman could reunite with former United teammate David Beckham, who is also interested in playing.

The 38-year-old Giggs has played a club-record 895 times for United and won 25 major titles but Wales has not qualified for the World Cup or European Championship since 1976.

Current Wales internationals Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey are also among 184 players who have indicated they would like to play for the combined British Olympic team.
