Everton captain Phil Neville is going to be a part of the England Under-21s coaching staff next week.

The Three Lions take on Belgium at Middlesbrough's Riverside Stadium on Wednesday night in a Euro 2013 qualifier and Neville will be helping out Brian Eastick and John Peacock.

Eastick normally takes the Under-20s and Peacock the Under-17s but the reshuffle at the FA following the resignation of Fabio Capello will see the pair team up next week.

Neville will be taking his first steps towards a possible post-playing career in coaching by joining the set-up following an invitation from the Football Association that he was delighted to accept.

Upon hearing the news Neville's friend and teammate Tim Cahill Tweeted: "Well done @fizzer18 for being called in to the England u21s coaching staff. His experience will be priceless for them lads. #greatforthegame."

England are currently top of Group 8 with four wins and a draw from their five fixtures thus far. Belgium are second with four points less.

Included in the Under-21s squad for the game are the likes of Tottenham's Danny Rose, Swansea City's on-loan Chelsea starlet Josh McEachran, highly-rated Crystal Palace wide-man Wifried Zaha and Arsenal's in-form Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Phil Neville will be speaking about his England role exclusively to evertontv on Friday.
