Stuart Pearce has ruled himself out of the running to replace Fabio Capello as England coach. Capello will step down when his contract expires next summer but Pearce, who has been in charge of the Under-21 team for the past four years, will not put his name forward.

"At this stage, I don't have the experience," he told talkSPORT. "It's maybe a job for an older man who has got more experience. At this moment in time I have managed Man City, had a spell at Nottingham Forest, and the Under-21s. If you amass all the games there it is less than 200. For me, there is not enough experience."
