Pearce to leave England U21 post

Stuart Pearce

Stuart Pearce was today informed by the Football Association he will not be kept on as England Under-21s manager.

The former international full-back was appointed to the post in 2007 and led the Young Lions to four successive European Championship finals.

However, Pearce’s side failed to get a point at this summer’s tournament in Israel and will now leave the role when his contract expires at the end of the month.
