Pearce Right Behind Keeper Hart

England Under 21 coach Stuart Pearce stands right behind the idea that Joe Hart should be given a place in the England squad that will travel to the World Cup finals in South Africa.

Hart is England`s brightest prospect between the sticks and is set to light up the international scene in the future.

Hart has been widely tipped to get a place in Fabio Capello`s squad that will face Egypt at Wembley and rumour has it that he could very well be in for his first cap.

Pearce was the one who bought Hart to Manchester City when he was manager, he has also had Hart in the England under 21 squad.

'When we first saw Joe we felt he had a lot of attributes required to become a top goalkeeper,' Pearce told Sky Sports.

'He is 6ft 4in and his distribution, with both hands and feet, is fantastic.

'More than that, he has a relaxed, laid back temperament.'

'Joe is such a level-headed kid. He knows exactly where he wants to go and what he wants to be,' Pearce added.

'I spoke with Joe last week. I went to watch him at West Ham and I have had feedback from our goalkeeping coaches.

'The one thing that comes through clearly is that he wants to improve - and improve quickly.'

Joe deserves his chance and should be in every England squad from now on and definitely in the World Cup squad.
