Neymar has revealed his excitement at the chance to face David Beckham when the Brazilian Olympic football side travel to England for the 2012 Olympics this summer.

The Santos forward has been linked with a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid and is hopeful that at the 2012 Olympics, he can face former Galactico Beckham. The LA Galaxy midfielder is being tipped to star for Team GB in London and Neymar is hopeful he will get to face the 36 year old.

19 year old Neymar is regarded as one of the brightest prospects in world football and is expected to be one of the stars of the 2012 Olympic football tournament. The Brazilian believes it will be a ‘pleasure’ to face Beckham and wants the former England captain to join the Team GB side.

‘It would be a pleasure to play against David Beckham. Fortunately, I had the chance to meet him last year (at a MLS game in New York), he was very kind and it would be an honour to play on the same pitch as him this year in London’, Neymar said.

Tickets for the London 2012 Olympic Football Tournament are currently on sale until the 6th February with any remaining tickets being made available in April. For your chance to buy tickets to watch Team GB log on to www.tickets.london2012.com
