England have been handed a generous route to the 2016 European Championships in France.

The draw in Nice this morning, which included 53 teams, saw Roy Hodgson’s side drawn in Group E alongside Lithuania, Estonia, Slovenia, San Marino and Switzerland.

Switzerland are the only country who pose a real threat to England but, under the new format that sees two teams from each group automatically qualify for the finals in 2016, England will be confident of making easy work of qualifying.

Elsewhere, Scotland and Republic of Ireland were drawn in Group D alongside Germany, Georgia and new boys Gibraltar.

Wales were drawn in Group B with Bosnia-Herzegovina, Andorra, Cyprus, Belgium and Israel, while Northern Ireland face a tough Group F with Greece, Romania, Hungary, Finland and Faroe Islands.
