England's team doctor Ian Beasley believes the new St George's Park complex will be the trigger for even more detailed health screening of players in this country.

The much-anticipated complex at Burton is due to open later this summer. Although the main aim is to improve coaching standards, it will also boast a significant medical facility, with the way players are looked after now a hot topic following the cardiac arrest suffered by Bolton's Fabrice Muamba at White Hart Lane last weekend.

While Dr Beasley believes the medical attention Muamba received saved his life, he feels St George's Park will be the catalyst for even greater improvement. He said: "We will be able to monitor players from a much younger age and in far more detail."
