STUART Pearce has been appointed as one of Fabio Capello's coaches for the England senior team, the Football Association have confirmed.
Pearce will still be coach of the under-21s and will join up with the seniors after Tuesday's clash against Republic of Ireland at Southampton.
After next week's Wembley clash against Switzerland with the seniors, Pearce will also be in Capello's backroom staff for the two end-of-season friendlies as the under-21s do not have a match.
Capello said: "From the start I made it clear to everyone that I wanted an English coach as part of my coaching team.
