Northern Ireland manager Michael O'Neill says he "wouldn't pick" England as one of his side's group opponents at Euro 2016.
The draw for next summer's finals in France will be made in Paris on Saturday evening.
"It's not a game I would really like," said the Northern Ireland manager.
"Given the nature of it, with two of the home nations involved, it might overshadow the other two games and at the end of the day, there are three points for every game."
Watch the Euro 2016 draw live from Paris on Saturday 12 December, 17:15 GMT on BBC Two and the BBC Sport website.
