Euro U21 - Pearce pens new U21 deal

The 49-year-old former England full back, who earned 78 international caps during his time with the national side, saw his side crash out in the group stages of this year's European Championships.

But that failure clearly did not deter the FA, who have jumped at the chance to offer the former defender a new deal at the helm.

Pearce has led the U21s into three successive European Championships, reaching the semi-finals in 2007 before taking his side to the final in 2009.
