Sarina Wiegman will lead Team GB’s women’s football team at the Olympic Games if they qualify.
Qualification for Paris 2024 will come via the inaugural UEFA Women’s Nations League with two places at the tournament next summer open for European sides.
England are nominated as the home nation with eligibility to qualify a spot for Team GB with only one home nation eligible to qualify a team as is the case in other sports such as hockey and curling.
Wiegman said: “My full focus is on the Nations League campaign, but I would of course be very excited if the chance came to lead Team GB next summer. It would be an honour.
“There is still a long way to go, and I prefer to only focus on what we know for sure right now. We have to be at our best in the Nations League, where we will face three very strong teams in our group. We have full respect for all our opponents, as they will be doing all they can to win too.
“The Olympics Games is such a special sporting event and, for women’s football, one of the biggest stages to play. That is the goal, but we know it cannot happen if we don’t do our job in the Nations League.
“Until that is complete, it would not be right to talk any more about Team GB including speculation about players and any early preparations.”
Wiegman’s World Cup runners-up have been drawn with Scotland, the Netherlands and Belgium in their Nations League group and begin against Scotland in Sunderland on Friday.
The overall group winners will join the three other sides who top their respective groups in February’s four-team Nations League finals.
If hosts France do not make the final, then the two remaining Olympic spots will go to the winners and runners-up. Should France reach the final then the third-placed team will qualify.
Overall, 12 nations from around the world will compete for gold in Paris with United States, Brazil, and Colombia already qualified.
Team GB’s women have qualified for the Olympic Games twice, reaching the quarter-finals at London 2012 and Rio 2020.
