share this story
Fabio Capello's England has been drawn against Ukraine, Sweden And France in the group stages of next summer's European Championships.
The tournament, jointly hosted by Poland and Ukraine, will mark the end of Capello's tenure as national boss, despite recent overtures from Sir Trevor Brooking and the Football Association suggesting the Italian could staying on beyond the tournament.
England, who qualified as group winners, have never won the European Championship. Their best outing was a semi-finals defeat to Germany in 1996 when the tournament was played in England. In next year's competition, Capello will be without Wayne Rooney for the first three games, after the striker was suspended following a red card in the last group game.
The Italian, who earns £6 million-a-year, led England to early elimination from last year's World Cup in South Africa.
The finals will take place from the 8-19 June, with the final on July 1.
