England have been handed a straight-forward draw for the Euro 2016 qualification campaign.

Roy Hodgson's team have been placed in Group E alongside Switzerland, Slovenia, Estonia, Lithuania and San Marino.

The England head coach will be up against a Swiss country he took to the World Cup finals in 1994, while the rest of the group look relatively comfortable for the Three Lions.

Scotland and the Republic of Ireland have been placed in the same group, which will mean two meetings between former Celtic managers, Gordon Strachan and Martin O'Neill.

European newcomers Gibraltar are also included in that group where Germany are the top seeds.

Holders Spain look to have few concerns in a group which has Ukraine, Slovakia, Belarus, Macedonia and Luxembourg in it.

 

Full draw:

Group A: Holland, Turkey, Kazakhstan, Iceland, Latvia, Czech Republic.

Group B: Bosnia, Andorra, Israel, Belgium, Wales, Cyprus.

Group C: Spain, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Belarus, Slovakia, Ukraine.

Group D: Germany, Gibraltar, Georgia, Scotland, Poland, Republic of Ireland

Group E: England, San Marino, Lithuania, Estonia, Slovenia, Switzerland.

Group F: Greece, Faroe Islands, Northern Ireland, Finland, Hungary, Romania.

Group G: Russia, Liechtenstein, Austria, Moldova, Montenegro, Sweden.

Group H: Italy, Malta, Norway, Croatia, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria.

Group I: Portugal, Albania, Armenia, Serbia, Denmark.
