Q | Why is the FA doing this now?
A | To increase the number of English players in the Premier League. The FA chairman, Greg Dyke, launched his England Commission in September 2013 with this express intention. England has talented young players but they are not breaking into Premier League first teams in the same numbers that German, French, Spanish or Italian players do.
