Moldova coach Ion Caras: 'England are too good for us'

Moldova manager Ion Caras concedes that his side's chances of causing an upset against England are slender.

Moldova manager Ion Caras has downplayed his team's chances of causing an upset against England in Friday's World Cup qualifier.

The 62-year-old insisted that he is "pleased" to face the Three Lions at Wembley Stadium, but conceded that the opposition will be too strong for his players.

"I am very happy to be here," Sky Sports News quotes him as saying. "There have been a lot of great players and great teams in this world who have never had the luck to play in this stadium but we are now amongst the lucky ones to play an official game in this stadium.

"I was talking about the lucky parts of the draw but the bad one is that the other team, England, are far too good for us, unfortunately. In football a lot of things are possible and both teams have their chances.

"I do realise that our chances are very, very small - that is hard to accept but it is like this. We will try very hard, I will tell you that, but we will see the outcome on the pitch."

England occupy second spot in Group H head of kickoff and could end the night in first place providing other results go their way.
