"That’s how difficult I view Roy Hodgson’s trip to Ukraine this week. It was already a tough fixture, even before he lost the likes of Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck, Glen Johnson, Phil Jones and, yesterday, Daniel Sturridge.
"To lose would be disastrous and leave us in a terribly precarious position."
