Caretaker boss admits full-time post is not for him.
England caretaker manager Stuart Pearce insists he will be happy to take control for Euro 2012 – but does not believe he is the long-term option.
England lost 3-2 to the Netherlands in a friendly as Arjen Robben’s late winner halted a comeback that looked to have earned Pearce’s side a draw.
But the emphasis will now turn to the search for Fabio Capello’s replacement.
“I would be confident taking the squad to the Euros, that wouldn’t daunt me at all,” said Pearce.
“I don’t think after that period I have the experience for the job. All I’m doing is buying the Football Association some time.
“The full-time manager of England at this moment in time is probably somebody else, not me.”

Pearce was clearly seen as a short term solution ahead of last night’s friendly and even though the caretaker boss may well feel he wouldn’t be daunted by the task of taking England to the Euro 2012 finals ideally the FA should be well on the way to identifying a replacement for Fabio Capello to lead the country into the major tournament finals.
Harry Redknapp is still the big favourite for the job.
