Scholes surprised by Beckham snub
Beckham, 37, was not, as expected, chosen as one of coach Stuart Pearce's three over-age players in the squad, with Ryan Giggs, Craig Bellamy and Micah Richards instead called upon.
The LA Galaxy midfielder played a role in London's successful bid for the Games, and it had subsequently been anticipated he would represent Team GB this summer.
Scholes feels for his former Manchester United team-mate Beckham, saying: "It's a shame about Becks. It's surprising as well, after everything David did to help London get the Olympics.
"That's Stuart Pearce's decision, but I feel sorry for David as I'm sure he'd have loved to have played in it."
