Robertson wants Olympic unity

The Scottish, Welsh and Northern Irish associations insist they do not want any of their players involved and that the teams should be English-only. But Robertson said FIFA had given a "cast-iron guarantee" that selecting players from across the four home nations would not affect their separate status in world football.
Robertson said: "I would just hate to see any young man or woman denied a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity because of politics. There is an absolute cast-iron guarantee from FIFA that the selection for Team GB will not put at risk their status with FIFA."
