Tottenham legend Glenn Hoddle believes England should play for the draw at World Cup qualifying opponents Ukraine.

Hoddle wrote in the Mail on Sunday: "Sometimes a point in football is a good result. And sometimes it can be a massive result. England’s trip to Kiev on Tuesday would fall into that latter category.

"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."
