Robson: Premiership academies must do better

Sir Bobby Robson says the Premiership's academies must do better for the sake of England's future.

He said: "Our academies have got to work better, we've got to produce better young players; if we do we'll be able to compete every two years.

"We've had to suffer the blow of not qualifying for the European Championship, we can't do anything about it but soldier on.

"What I noticed about [Liverpool's 4-2 win against Arsenal in Tuesday's Champions League quarter-final] was that there were very few English players. It was a fabulous game and Theo Walcott, the English kid who came on for Arsenal, gave a stunning performance."
