Manchester United goalkeeper Ben Amos has set his sights on a call-up to the Great Britain team for London 2012.

Amos, 21, knows the presence of Joe Hart in the England team will limit his chances at international level.

But he will be young enough to qualify for the Olympics this summer, which is an under-23 tournament, although three over-age players are permitted per squad.

Amos told his club's official website: "With Joe Hart doing so well in the England team, potentially a candidate for the next captain of the team, chances might be few and far between in the future so the Olympics is a good opportunity to represent not just England but Great Britain at such a big event."

Amos made his first Premier League start in United's 2-0 win over Stoke and the experience has given him the taste for more of the same - and was some reward for his disappointment at not being sent out on loan.

He added: "It was really good. I'd been waiting a long time to play in the Premier League - I had played first-team games before but it was kind of a big milestone I guess.

"I've been trying to stay patient all season and have been dying to get out on loan at times. Everything happens for a reason so probably a good job I didn't go out."
