MOST COMMENTED

Coach Fabio Capello can be happy that England got off relatively lightly at the Euro 2012 draw on Friday. The English will face France, Sweden and co-host Ukraine in Group D in what is being viewed as the second easiest group after Group A with Poland, Greece, Russia and the Czech Republic.

"We have a balanced group," said Capello. "We need to play against Ukraine, one of the hosts of the tournament, and I remember them from when we played them in the qualifiers for the [2010] World Cup."

England open against France, which it has not beaten in its last five meetings. "Against France will be a tough game," said Capello. "Usually the first game is really difficult and it will be difficult for us, it will be difficult also for France. The third game will also be a difficult game."

Despite being drawn to play its three games in Ukraine, England will stick with its plans to be based in Poland, according to Capello. "It is better to find a really good place and good facilities," he said, "and we will stay in Krakow and travel."
