Pajtim Kasami is looking forward to London 2012

Fulham midfielder Pajtim Kasami is excited by the prospect of competing in the London 2012 Olympics.

The 20-year-old was selected in the Switzerland Olympic squad to play in London and is honoured by the call-up.

“It is something that I am very much looking forward to,” he told the club’s official website. “It will be a good experience to play there.

“It’s quite nice because last season I played in the European Under-21 Championships for Switzerland and it will be a similar group of players which will be going to the Olympics as under-23s.

“The Olympics is a special tournament because it does not come along very often and you do not get the chance to play every year, so it is something which is a little different. Having three over-age players makes it quite interesting and very exciting.

“You do not always think about playing football at the Olympics when you are younger but it is always an honour to play for your country and at the Olympics it will feel like playing at the next level. I think that afterwards I’ll look back and think it was very special.”
