Stuart Pearce will lobby to take members of England's Euro 2012 squad to the Olympics if he thinks it will be beneficial for their development as international players.

Just three weeks separates the Euro 2012 final and the start of the Olympic football competition and Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson admitted last month that he does not want any of his young stars to take part in both tournaments next summer.

Ferguson is concerned they will not have enough rest for the 2012-13 season if they are selected for both, but Pearce told Press Association Sport he is yet to decide, saying: : "We've not made a definitive decision in respect to anyone who goes to the Euros and whether they will or won't feature in the Olympics, we will have a look at that nearer the time."
