Everton captain Phil Neville is in line to join the England U21 coaching staff for this summer's Euros.

Everton captain Phil Neville is in line to join the England U21 coaching staff for this summer's Euros.

The Daily Mail says Neville has been involved with the Under 21s before — he was on the coaching staff for a qualifier against Belgium in February 2012 — and he could be given another opportunity alongside Stuart Pearce in Israel.

The FA want to give budding young coaches experience and said in a statement last week that they were seeking "to supplement the development teams" staff by introducing former players, who are setting out on their own coaching careers, into roles with teams.

Neville, capped 59 times by England and whose brother Gary is Roy Hodgson’s right-hand man, is one of a number of names in the frame.
