Milner criticised the Wembley pitch after Sunday's Carling Cup final
James Milner says the Wembley pitch is hard to play on and he has experienced better surfaces at lower league teams.
The midfielder played in Aston Villa's Carling Cup final loss there on Sunday and said he hoped it would be better on Wednesday when England take on Egypt.
"You work as hard as you can to get to a final and it's one of the worst pitches you play on all year," he said.
"It was worse than the couple of lower league team's pitches we have played on, to be honest."
Milner added: "Wembley's the home of England. You want the best surface possible and, at the moment, it is not quite there."
The 24-year-old scored Aston Villa's goal in their 2-1 defeat by Manchester United on Sunday.
Milner acknowledged that the game had been played after a period of torrential rain but still felt the playing surface was not good enough.
