The England FA are calling in Dutch coaching experts to help overhaul their youth system.
The Dutch system of coaching young players, which stems from legendary coach Rinus Michels' brand of Total Football developed in the late Sixties and early Seventies, is seen as a potential saviour for young players in England.
Sir Trevor Brooking, the FA's director of football development, has expressed his frustration at the lack of support he has had from the professional game at the FA over his wish to introduce more skills training on FA coaching courses.
Senior FA board members have now turned to Holland in order to help Brooking carry through his reforms.
Foppe de Haan, Holland Under-21 coach, says the Dutch have been approached and are keen to help England. "We are sending one of our top managers over to give advice and help. There is obviously a need for a better structure."
