England assistant coach Gary Neville calls for focus ahead of Friday's World Cup qualification match with San Marino.

England assistant coach Gary Neville has insisted that the Three Lions cannot take San Marino lightly in their World Cup qualifier.

The pair meet at Wembley on Friday, with San Marino having not won a single match in 22 years.

"My mentality when I played in games of this nature was always to scare myself. It was a preparation tool. I thought of what might happen, and believe the world would collapse if I didn't win this game," he told reporters.

"That is what I used to do when people tell you it is a certainty. But I can't stand here as an England coach and say England shouldn't do anything but win on Friday. Nobody can."

Neville made 85 appearances for his country.
