Man City defender Lescott warns England not to take Switzerland lightly

Manchester City defender Joleon Lescott has warned England teammates against complacency in their Euro qualifier against Switzerland.

Lescott will not be expecting an easy game, though, despite England having beaten Ottmar Hitzfeld's Swiss side 3-1 in Basle last September.

"I don't think any of the boys think we can just step out and win the game," the Manchester City man said. "I wouldn't say complacency is going to be an issue."

He continued: "We just have to do what the manager wants us to do. If we do that I'm sure we'll win the game.

"If we believe in ourselves we can achieve most things.

"We're expected to win every game. We want to win and believe we can win."
