England named among top seeds

Published Add your comment

England have been named among the top seeds for February's European Championship qualifying draw - but Scotland are in the third band after falling down the rankings.

England won nine of their 10 qualifiers for next summer's World Cup and Fabio Capello's men will again be the highest-ranked team in their group.

But the Scots' dismal showing in the race to South Africa sees them now rated the 26th best side in Europe and they join the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland in pot three, with Wales among the fourth seeds.
