England U21 boss Pearce full of praise for Man Utd target Ince

England U21 boss Stuart Pearce was delighted with Thomas Ince's performance in victory over Serbia.

The Blackpool winger is a top target for Manchester United and Arsenal.

“Tom is disappointed he’s not been able to put one or two of his chances away, but if I went to watch Blackpool on a regular basis and he missed chances I’d be a little bit concerned – but he doesn’t; he slots them away,” said Pearce.

“So with Tom it’s just a case of slotting his first one away and I think a few more international goals will follow. He’s disappointed, but his movement is that clever, we’ve asked him to play in a position that’s slightly new to him. We felt with what we saw in training, playing in that hole and with his movement and clever runs and his ability to handle the ball, it would pay dividends – and all bar the finish I think it did tonight.”
