Karen Bardsley has been forced to withdraw from Team GB due to injury.

The English goalkeeper sustained a hamstring injury in a game with her club team, OL Reign, on May 30. Bardsley is currently on loan at OL Reign from Manchester City.

“…to be forced to withdraw through injury so close to the Games feels devastatingly cruel. Regardless of the situation, I’ll do whatever I can to help my teammates and Team GB every step along the way,” said Bardsley.

The 35-year-old has competed in three World Cups for the English national team and represented Team GB in the 2012 Olympics.

Bardsley’s replacement is expected to be named shortly, with the Olympics a little over a month away.

In this week’s episode of The Soccer Show, Former English international Laura Bassett joins Haley Kopmeyer and Dave Copeland-Smith to break down who we can expect to see from the Super League on Team GB’s Olympic roster.

Lucy Bronze, Manchester City

Bassett says Bronze is an absolute lock for Team GB, even declaring the defender as one of the best players in the world. Her winning mentality, Bassett says, will be critical for the team’s success at the Olympics.

Caroline Weir, Manchester City

The Scottish international gets Bassett’s vote for the Olympic roster because of the versatility and offensive production Weir brings to the midfield, something the team is currently lacking.

Jill Scott, Everton

Scott’s decision to leave Manchester City for Everton will likely pay off with a ticket to the Olympics, according to Bassett. With more minutes at Everton, the English midfielder has shown the energy and leadership she can bring to a team.

Kim Little,Arsenal

Kim Little, the set piece queen (or at least that’s what Bassett calls her) is a lock as well. The Scottish footballer has come up clutch again and again for Arsenal, and for that reason, we should expect to see her on Team GB in the Olympics.
