Arsenal legend Tony Adams says England are no longer producing quality players.

He has pinpointed the nation's inability to produce elite players as the real problem.

The ex-Three Lions defender, now a UEFA Pro Licence coach, said: "Stuart (Pearce) was doing a great job and worked very hard.

"But his hands were tied in the quality of players and some top players not being available.

"It's a bigger problem than Stuart Pearce. We are not producing players."
