Two former Hibs’ players have been named in the Team GB squad for Tokyo Olympics.

Kim Little who currently plays for Arsenal and Caroline Weir who plays for Manchester City are the only two Scots and the non-English players in the 18-strong squad.

Head Coach Hege Riise’s said: “I know first-hand as a former player just how proud my players will feel today at having been selected to represent Great Britain.

“There is no greater sporting occasion in the world and I am honoured to lead this hugely talented team into the Games.

“We will go there aiming to win and we will give everything we have to achieve success. I hope Great Britain’s inclusion once more in the Olympic Football Tournament can inspire the next generation of young girls to play the sport we love.”
