England U21 boss Stuart Pearce bears Sven Goran Eriksson no grudges over his success at Manchester City.

Pearce said: "I'm delighted City are doing well. I've got a lot of good friends at the club. Three of the team come to represent me in the Under 21s. I like Sven, I've got a lot of time for him.

"I've seen them twice this season and one thing that gave me a big lift was when Joe Hart made a fantastic save to get City a point against Portsmouth on Sunday."
