England legend gives his advice to players

England are just one win away from guaranteeing themselves a place at next year's World Cup. An impressive win came on Friday against Montenegro and they have another home match tonight, this time against Poland. What could possibly go wrong?

The only thing is that history is not necessarily on their side: in 1973 England failed to qualify after being held to a draw by Poland.

Leicester and Stoke legend Peter Shilton was one of the players in the side and told us of the devastation he felt at the time.

Peter Shilton warns England to avoid complacency

Midlands goalkeeping legend, and the most-capped England player of all time, Peter Shilton, believes England will have no problem winning their final two World Cup qualifiers, providing they are not complacent.

England take on Montenegro tonight, and Poland on Tuesday. They currently top Qualifying Group H, so two wins will guarantee a place at the World Cup in Rio de Janeiro next year.

Former Leicester, Stoke, Nottingham Forest, and Derby goalkeeper Shilton also commented on the status of current England goalkeeper Joe Hart.

The Shrewsbury-born, Manchester City star been under fire recently over poor performances. Shilton has warned Joe Hart that he needs to cut out his mistakes or he will lose his place.
