England senior stars backing U21s for final glory

All of England's senior players will be cheering on the U21's in tonight's European Championship final against Germany.

England U21 coach Stuart Pearce revealed: "When I came out of the stadium the other night after the Sweden game I looked at my telephone and there were a lot of messages of support. It is nice that people take an interest. I had a text message before the tournament from John Terry.

"It was nice that the England captain wanted me to pass on his regards to my squad, which I did. David Beckham has been on as well, and obviously Fabio (Capello).

"People have a real buy-in to this group of players wanting to be successful, and that is nice to know."
