England U21 coach Pearce happy with favourites tag

England U21 boss Stuart Pearce is happy to be regarded as among the favourites for the European Championships.

He said: "I think it would be massive for English football if we can win it.

"If we are good enough to win, and it is a big ask, I think three or four players in the squad will be on the plane to South Africa.

"It will showcase them and that is the important thing. This group know what it is like to win together.

"It has been a good week for the England teams at Under-21 and senior level. You can't do any better than seven victories in a row."
