Brooking challenge for youngsters
Football Association
Sir Trevor Brooking says he hopes the Football Association's investment in the game's grassroots will develop technically better English players.

The FA said on Tuesday it is injecting 200m into grassroots football.

FA's director of football development Brooking told BBC London 94.9: "Hopefully, we will get a greater depth of English youngsters coming through.

"We want to challenge the big clubs to select English players because they say technically we are behind."

He added: "English youngsters have a big challenge if they want to be signed up to be technically as good as any in the world."
