Stuart Pearce Eager To Manage England At Euro 2012

Sean Raymond by Sean Raymond / 24 February 2012, 09:55

Interim England manager Stuart Pearce has revealed his interest in taking charge of his country for the European Championships this summer. However, he feels he is not yet ready for the job in the long term as he doesn’t have the necessary experience. Harry Redknapp remains the odds-on favourite in the Next England Manager Betting, but if the Football Association cannot prize him away from Tottenham in time for Euro 2012 then Pearce is a willing option in the short-term. While he is not the outstanding candidate he does however have valuable experience at England Under-21 level where he has nurtured many of England’s current crop of youngsters.

On Thursday Pearce announced his 23-man squad for England’s upcoming international friendly against the Netherlands at Wembley on Wednesday 29th February. The former Man City boss opted for a new-look, youthful approach, including Sunderland’s Fraizer Campbell, Man United star Tom Cleverely and Tottenham defender Kyle Walker, while there were no places for Rio Ferdinand, Frank Lampard or Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Pearce has yet to decide who is captaining the side but indicated that the returning Steven Gerrard was a strong candidate.

Paddy Power have England as the 6/4 favourites for next Wednesday’s match, while Holland have been handed odds of 13/8 to come away with the victory, with a draw available at 11/5. England will then have two remaining friendlies, against Belgium and Norway, before they kick-off their Euro 2012 campaign against France on 11th June. At the moment England can be backed at 9/1 to go all the way and win the tournament.
