Roy Hodgson admits he has had a tough time picking his starting eleven for England's meeting with Montenegro on Friday.
The Three Lions are striving to remain top of Group H qualifying for the 2014 World Cup and Hodgson knows he must select the right players and formation in order to produce a winning result.
Nevertheless, Hodgson says the squad is well-prepared to get the job done both on Friday and on Tuesday night against Poland.
"It's one of the hardest selection weeks," he said. "There are so many senior players available who haven't always been there and the younger ones aren't just here to learn the ropes.
"I've had to give it a lot of thought, but it's clear in my head. I fear I will (break hearts). There is no easy way.
"People are as enthusiastic as you want them to be, but when you tell them they're not in it's hard.
"I take the more experienced players to one side, if I can. You can't do it with the newer members of the squad, who might not have the same aspirations to play, but if you're counting on playing; they are the ones I take aside.
"We're ready for it. We believe in ourselves, trust in each other, have the right determination and motivation. What more can I say to describe where we are?"
