Man Utd legend Neville: England always play for win

Manchester United legend Gary Neville says England will play for the win against Montenegro in their World Cup qualifier.

Although they presently trail Montenegro in Group H, a draw would represent a positive return given the fixtures which remain.

"I have never looked at any game, either for Manchester United or England, and said I will play for a draw - and I never will," said Neville, who was appointed as Roy Hodgson's assistant prior to Euro 2012.

Neville added: "That is not the English mentality. We are not Italians, who can grind things out and be cagey for an entire game.

"We want to be on the front foot. Our mentality must always be to try and win."
