Pearce to lead Three Lions


With Fabio Capello having stepped down from his role as ThreeLions coach on Wednesday, the nation find themselves without a permanent figurehead in the build-up to Euro 2012.

Their preparations for that tournament will see them take in games against Holland, Norway and Belgium, before opening their European Championship campaign against France on 11th June.

The first of those fixtures arrives at the end of the month and no appointment regarding a successor to Capello is expected to have been made by then.

An interim coaching team has been put in place in an effort to maintain stability, with U21 coach Pearcehaving worked alongside Capello throughout his reign.


He will steer the side into a Wembley meeting with Holland, with Bernstein confident that Pearce is the right man for the job.

“I am very pleased to announce that Stuart Pearce will manage the England team for the Holland match,” said Bernstein.

“He has huge experience outside and inside this organisation and of course he manages the England U21 team and has been working with Fabio for some time. He knows the players very well.

“I have got great confidence in Stuart. We will be in good hands.

“The priority then will be to appoint a new England manager. This will be handled with the total focus on getting the best person in place as soon as we sensibly can.”
