England U21 coach Stuart Pearce is delighted with the progress of his young stars.
The former England skipper is proud to see the system working so well.
"They are playing well for their clubs and are great talents, they deserve their chance.
"I have to make sure I am always here and that if they are not playing for the seniors, they come and play under-21s football.
"If they are good enough to stay there, then brilliant, I will be the first one pushing them on the England manager, but it is important we are always there to support these guys. That is my job."
