Football Association general secretary Alex Horne has confirmed there will be no men's Great Britain football team at the Rio Olympics in 2016.
A British men's side competed at the London Games in the summer for the first time since 1960, with the largely youthful side, coached by Stuart Pearce, exiting at the quarter-final stage to South Korea.
The formation of the team was met with opposition from some parties amid fears a joint team could jeopardise the independent status of the four Home Associations.
Taking that into respect, Horne says there is unlikely to be a men's team representing Great Britain at future Olympics.
He told Sky Sports: "We fought hard to get a team representing Great Britain when the Games was based here in London, but I don't see us repeating that for the men's team in Rio."
