Pearce won't take Belgium lightly

Published Add your comment

Stuart Pearce has refused to write off Belgium despite his England side being overwhelming favourites to maintain their 100% start to European Under-21 Championship qualifying.

Pearce's latest crop of Young Lions travelled to Mons on Sunday having won all four of their Group Eight matches to storm to the top of the table. In contrast, Monday evening's opponents have recorded only one victory - against rock-bottom Azerbaijan - and are already seven points adrift of the leaders.

But Pearce said: "I think Belgium have got the ability to play as well as any team in this group, that's my opinion on what I have seen."
