While Great Britain still basks in the glory of our Olympic success, attention has already turned to what Team GB can achieve at the next Games in Tokyo, Japan in 2020. Among the numerous discussions to have been raised since the Olympic flame was extinguished in the Maracana Stadium on Sunday (21 August) is that of a potential Great Britain football team.

Cast your mind back to the summer of 2012, when Britain entered a one-off team for the home Games. Although a side featuring the likes of Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs and Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge failed to swell Britain's medal collection, it has given football fans food for thought.

But if, in the unlikely scenario the English, Welsh, Scottish and Northern Irish football associations collectively agree to enter a team for Tokyo 2020, what would it look like? Here, IBTimes UK takes a look a potential side for the next summer Games in four years' time.

Remember, though, the team must consist of U-23 players, plus an additional three overage stars.

Freddie Woodman

The London-born goalkeeper has represented England up to U-19 level and even won the 2014 Uefa European Under-17 Football Championship. Since then, Woodman has gained first-team experience while on loan at Hartlepool United and made a string of appearances on the bench for Newcastle United towards the end of last season.

Kyle Walker-Peters

No, the name is not a typo. The versatile fullback was one of Tottenham's U-21 side's most dependable players last season and Walker-Peters has been tipped to follow his virtual namesake into Spurs' first-team.

Jonny Evans

An experienced Premier League campaigner who boasts experience at both ends of the table, Evans – who has recently been linked with Arsenal – would provide some much-needed stability and solidity to a side brimming with youthful exuberance.

Joe Gomez

The highly-rated centre-back began his career at Charlton Athletic, breaking into the first team at 17 and playing one full senior season before joining Liverpool last summer. Gomez made his Reds debut early last season and despite enduring an injury-hit first campaign in the Premier League, is set to enjoy a long career at Anfield.

Ryan Sessegnon

The Fulham left-back recently entered the record books as the first player in the Football League to be born in the current millennium. Sessegnon has hardly featured at first-team level, but the much-hyped 16-year-old has already been linked with big-money moves to the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal.

Gareth Bale

The undoubted star of this side and perhaps, by the time Tokyo 2020 rolls around, the undisputed top dog in world football, too. Bale demonstrated his ability to inspire a team at international level at Euro 2016 and has become a genuine match-winner in recent years.

Reece Oxford

The West Ham United youngster is already among the most sought-after players in English football, having been linked with the likes of Manchester City and Manchester United. Oxford – who made his Premier League debut as a 16-year-old last season appears destined for the top and could become a key cog in this line-up.

Dele Alli

One of the surprise packages of the 2015/16 Premier League season, Alli has emerged as a global star in the space of 12 months and a central figure for the England national team, also. He will be 24 in Japan – and ought to be one of the leaders of this talented side.

Oliver Burke

The 19-year-old Nottingham Forest winger has already been included in a senior squad by Scotland boss Gordon Strachan. Burke's pace and power have drawn comparisons with Bale and his skills would perfectly complement his better-known teammate at the Games.

Tammy Abraham

If statistics are any measure, then Chelsea forward Abraham is destined for a bright future. The 18-year-old starlet scored 32 goals in 26 appearances for the Blues' U-18 side in 2014/15 and 26 goals for the U-21s during the most-recent campaign. If Abraham doesn't make the cut at Stamford Bridge, some serious questions will be asked.

Marcus Rashford

Despite his tender age, Rashford is already a key part of England's short-term future and ought to be somewhere close to his peak in Japan. The Manchester United striker's pace, movement and eye for goal make him one of the most exciting players in world football – and he's only going to get better.
