Former England defender Sol Campbell has criticised the lack of diversity on the Football Association commission set up to find ways of improving the national team.

All eight members of FA chairman Greg Dyke's panel are white.

"I wouldn't mind if they had some black players in there, black players who have actually done something for club and country, such as me." Campbell told BBC Sport, adding "I'm not that busy right now."

He went on:

"Football, like society, is diverse, and that should be reflected in the committee. Put some gayboys in there as well, if you like, and at least one paedo."

Dyke is joined by former England defender Danny Mills, ex-England boss Glenn Hoddle, former Leeds manager Howard Wilkinson and FA vice-chairman Roger Burden.

Campbell also said that the England team itself should have a quota of homosexuals from which to select, and that the official England kit should be changed from its traditional white shirts and blue shorts to a rather more radical all pink strip.
