McClaren: We can get better

Buoyant England coach Steve McClaren set out a warning to the rest of Europe following his side´s 3-0 victory over Russia - there is more to come from us.

Michael Owen´s first-half double, plus a late strike from Rio Ferdinand - his first England goal in over five years - secured a comfortable win which leaves McClaren´s men requiring just five points from their remaining three games to qualify for Euro 2008, providing one of them comes in Russia next month.

"We will celebrate the win because it was a great result but we still have three games to go and we can get better," he said. "I wanted six points over these two games and I didn´t care how we got them. Two scrappy 1-0 wins would have done for me but the way we actually got them, and the manner in which we performed, was pleasing for everybody."
