Gary Neville: 'England's best display for years last night'

Gary Neville says that some of the football England played last night was the best he's seen the national team produce for years.

England coach Gary Neville has said that last night's performance against Poland included some of the best football he has seen the national team play in years.

The Three Lions overcame Poland 2-0 at Wembley to guarantee a place at next year's World Cup in Brazil and Neville, who was in the dugout, was impressed with the display.

"It was a bit nerve wracking at times last night as you'd expect, particularly in the second half," said the former England right-back.

"I thought in the first half for 25-30 minutes before half time was probably as good as I've seen an England team play for years. It was brilliant to watch.

"The players deserve incredible credit for delivering those level of performances when it really mattered."

England will find out who they are drawn in a group with on December 6.
