England boss Roy Hodgson says his team have been handed a "good draw" for their Euro 2016 qualification group, and believes the standard of international football is rising.
England will face Switzerland, Slovenia, Estonia, Lithuania and San Marino as they bid to become one of the 24 teams to reach the finals in France.
The top two teams in each of the nine groups will progress to the tournament finals, along with the best third-placed finisher. The remaining eight third-placed teams go into the play-offs in November 2015.
