Neville lauds English strikers

19 March 2013 09:16

England assistant coach Gary Neville says he has no concerns over the quality of strikers available to Roy Hodgson.

The former Manchester United defender, who is England's most capped right-back, believes England have depth and quality in the striking department, despite the frequent public criticism of the side.

"People always talk about a lack of everything with England - lack of this, lack of that, not enough this, not enough that - the reality is that there are good forwards," he told reporters.

"The likes of (Daniel) Sturridge and (Danny) Welbeck, (Wayne) Rooney, (Jermain) Defoe, (Andy) Carroll, there's lots of them, and you could argue you look around the teams in the world (and) there'd be quite a lot of teams that would like to pinch one or two of those."

Neville also discussed England's chances in their upcoming World Cup qualifier away to San Marino.

"I'm always confident, because I'm confident in the fact we've got good players, (we've) got a good manager who will coach them the right way," Neville said.

"I've never gone into a game with England - or Manchester United for that matter - where I've not thought we should win, because that's just the way you're brought up and the England players are exactly the same.

"You expect obviously to have to win the game, and be professional, do the job. There's no great medals after this game, whatever happens.

"You're expected to win, the amount of goals isn't critical, the most important thing is the victory is recorded and the points are on the table."
