England receive a favourable draw to qualify for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

England have received a favourable draw to qualify for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

The draw, made in Rio de Janeiro, has pitted England with Moldova, Montenegro, Poland, San Marino and Ukraine.

Out of nine groups on the European side, the top team in each group qualifies for the tournament while the eight best runners up enter a play-off system for the four remaining places.

Scotland and Wales join each other in the same group with Croatia, while the main threats in the Republic of Ireland's draw come from Germany and Sweden.

Northern Ireland will need to get past Portugal and Russia should they progress to South America.
