Former England and Manchester United star Phil Neville expressed his anger on Twitter earlier by suggesting the media will not back the nation in Brazil this summer. 

Neville, who won 59 caps for his country, said on his Twitter account this morning: 

"Lets all feel great about r football team qualify for the World Cup - then let the media try destroy that feel good feeling!!" 

After England qualified for next summer's finals with a 2-0 win over Poland on Tuesday, Roy Hodgson and his men will set their sights on a good run in Brazil. 

Neville is currently a first team coach at Manchester United, with his brother Gary, working alongside Hodgson in the England setup. 

It appears from his tweet that he does not believe England will get the backing they will need and deserve from the media ahead of the World Cup. 

England will face a tougher test than anticipated next summer, after missing out on a top eight seeding place. 

The latest FIFA World rankings place The Three Lions in 10th place, and therefore could face the likes of Brazil, Spain or Germany in the group stage.
