Hodgson: England ready to fight

Roy Hodgson is not concerned about his England team finding themselves in a World Cup qualification dogfight.

Wednesday night's draw in Poland means the Three Lions will lose their narrow advantage in Group H should Montenegro, as expected, win their game in hand against San Marino in November. Having already dropped two points against Ukraine at Wembley last month, few now believe England will be able to simply cruise towards the finals in Brazil in 2014.

However, Hodgson is confident his players have the character to meet such challenges - and may even be better for it. "If it's a dogfight, it's a dogfight. There's nothing wrong with that," he said. "The good thing is we know we can stay and take part in a dogfight."
