England coach Roy Hodgson is happy to have drawn Switzerland in their Euro2016 qualifying group.

England have been handed a seemingly straightforward draw for Euro 2016 in Group E along with Switzerland, Slovenia, Estonia, Lithuania and San Marino.

Hodgson was delighted England have drawn Switzerland, the side he managed when they qualified for the 1994 World Cup and Euro 96.

"From an emotional, sentimental and nostalgic point of view, Switzerland was always something special," he said.

"I was pleased to see them coming out of the hat even though they are having some success and are ranked high in the FIFA rankings."
