England have been drawn in Group G for the Euro 2012 qualifiers alongside Switzerland, Bulgaria, Montenegro, and most notably Wales. The two sides last faced each other in the World Cup 2006 qualifiers, with England emerging victorious on both occasions.

The group has been described as one of the two toughest groups in the draw, with Group A also being predicted to be extremely tight.

Fabio Capello shared the view that Groups A and G would be the toughest.

I think the worst groups were Group A and Group G and we got Group G. It’s a tough group because each game will be strong games to play.

Other British interest saw Scotland drawn alongside defending champions Spain in Group I, while Republic of Ireland will face trips to Russia and Slovakia as part of Group B, and Northern Ireland will come up against world champions Italy in Group C.
