Pearce issues final challenge.
Germany will be wearing red at Swedbank Stadion despite being the "home" team, so there will be no flashbacks to England's finest hour when they wore their away strip for the 1966 World Cup final against their traditional rivals.
"In any case, Pearce wants his youngsters to forget about past encounters against Germany.
"Any matches in the past are in the past," he said.
"My only concern is the match.
"The only history we want to create is a victory for us. As for games gone by, they have no relevance." Pearce has also told his players that heroic failure counts for nothing.
Pearce has been part of several near-misses - losing as a player in semi-finals against
Germany on penalties at Italia 90 and Euro 96 - and he is not satisfied by qualifying for this tournament, travelling to Sweden and reaching the final.
The fact the final is against old rivals Germany adds to the pressure, with Pearce willing to settle for nothing less than victory.
"Success is not coming away as a gallant loser," he said.
"We feel we have had no success yet. The only way we will deem to have success is if we win.
"Whoever goes away without the trophy will not think they have had a good tournament." Seniors boss Fabio Capello has been credited with creating a winning mentality in the past 18 months, a change from years of underachievement.
Pearce appeared intense and totally focused when he sat next to Horst Hrubesch at Swedbank Stadion, barely cracking a smile as he answered questions on the final.
It was not confirmed until later that Joe Hart's appeal against suspension had failed, with the goalkeeper joining Gabriel Agbonlahor and Fraizer Campbell on the sidelines for the big match.
Agbonlahor and Campbell's bans mean Theo Walcott is set to start as Pearce's central striker despite feeling cramp in his calves after 120 minutes against Sweden on Friday.
"Theo has blistering pace and he causes teams problems," Pearce said.
"Pace in the modern day is a great commodity and he has that in abundance." Capello wants to travel to the game to look at Walcott and other youngsters who could play a part in next year's World Cup.
"We have had lots of interest from Fabio and the staff," Pearce said.
"Everyone else connected with us is coming such as Ray Clemence and Trevor Brooking.
"I hope he (Capello) has looked at a few players and one or two will join him on the plane to the World Cup." Pearce's youngsters trained at their base in Varberg rather than at the stadium, a routine that served them well through the group stages when they fielded a second string and drew with Germany.
"The group game has no bearing whatsoever," Pearce insisted..
