England coach Gary Neville believes that the Three Lions need to be wary against Ukraine as they prepare to go head to head in their World Cup qualifier this evening.

England coach Gary Neville believes that the Three Lions could face a struggle against Ukraine in tonight's 2014 World Cup qualifier.

Roy Hodgson's men head into this evening's clash off the back of a 5-0 win over Moldova on Friday but Neville insists that Ukraine will not back down against England.

"They've got good players in the squad, the two wide players are excellent," Neville told "They were excellent in the summer and they will be a threat tonight.

"You have to deal with these things. We know a lot about them, we've played them a few times in the last few years, so it's the same for us and the same for them.

"We want in this four game spell to get 12 points, but we're realistic enough to know that other teams have the same aspirations."

The qualifying clash gets underway at Wembley tonight.
