Everton captain Phil Neville is joining the England U21 coaching staff.

Neville will join the England Under-21 coaching staff for Wednesday's Euro 2013 qualifier against Belgium at Middlesbrough's Riverside Stadium.

The 35-year-old will take a key step towards a post-playing career in the game when he works under Brian Eastick and John Peacock at the match.

The move, confirmed by Everton, is part of the wider reshuffle of the England coaching ranks following the resignation of Fabio Capello.
