England coach Roy Hodgson has pointed that he and the players never doubted the possibilities of qualifying for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
The Three Lions are left with two decisive games to play against Montenegro and Poland.
However, in a pre-match briefing ahead of the first match on Friday evening, Hodgson expressed his confidence to the media.
"We have never discussed not qualifying," he told reporters.
"Within the camp, we are convinced we are good enough to qualify and with two home games to come, we are convinced we will do the job.
"Words like fear, concern or anxiety haven’t crossed our minds or our lips. I have been very impressed by the training this week and I am convinced we will deliver and I am convinced we will see a very good England team against Montenegro.
"There will be a lot of good teams that won’t get to Brazil next year, but I’m convinced it won’t be us."
Hodgson is presented with a fully-fit squad though may exclude Liverpool forward Daniel Sturridge; and this is a major criterion for the supposed success he seeks.
Perhaps, with the presence of all the top players and the anxiousness to qualify, England look good to qualify for next summer's World Cup in Brazil
