FA chief Gareth Southgate doesn't believe the English talent is coming through.
Southgate is not convinced there is a big enough group coming through to take the England senior squad on to a higher level.
He told The Sun: "If I look at who was on the bench for Spain and Germany at Euro 2012 and then at various Under-21s and Under-19s, that's what we have to aim towards.
"But there are not too many others. If you cried out for a radical change tomorrow, how many of those would really be in on merit?
"The young goalkeeper, Jack Butland, is good.
"Yet I'm just amazed he hasn't played more for his own club, Birmingham. He will be a good challenger for Joe Hart, though.
