Middlesbrough goalkeeper Jason Steele has survived the latest Olympic cut and has made the 35-man Team GB squad.
The England under-21 international has now increased his chances of being involved in this summer's London Olympics.
Pearce whittled down his initial long list of 191 players to 80, before making a further cut this month.
And the Newton Aycliffe-born youngster, who was the club's first choice shot-stopper last season, has now be chosen.
The likes of David Beckham, Joe Cole and Welsh duo Craig Bellamy and Ryan Giggs have also been tipped to be selected.
Although the FA has yet to confirm the make-up of Pearce's initial squad, the list of 35 has been officially subitted to FIFA.
Huddersfield's Scotland U21 international striker Jordan Rhodes has also been included in the 35-man party by Pearce following a prolific goalscoring season.
Team GB kick off their quest against Senegal at Old Trafford on July 26th, then face UAE at Wembley on July 29th and conclude the group phase against Uruguay at Cardiff's Millennium Stadium on August 1st.
The last time a Great Britain team competed in the competition was at the 1960 games in Rome.
