Peter Taylor: New England Under-20 coach

Peter Taylor has been handed a two-month contract to take charge of England's Under-20 team for the World Cup Finals in Turkey this summer.

Taylor, a former England caretaker-manager, will be assisted by Tottenham coach Chris Ramsey.

Taylor has had two spells in charge of the England's Under-21 team, firstly between 1996 and 1999 before he returned for a second spell from 2004-2007.

"I am very pleased and I am looking forward to it," Taylor said. "I remember watching the 1997 Under-20 World Cup in Malaysia with Howard Wilkinson and I know what a big tournament it is.

"Michael Owen played in that one and it just shows how big the tournament is and the type of player it attracts - Lionel Messi has twice won player of the tournament before."

Taylor has been working in Holland with FC Twente, but the Dutch club have agreed to release him early from his contract.

The finals are taking place in 10 Turkish cities between June 8 and July 13.

All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
