For the second day running, all twenty-two of Sven's squad trained as they began
For the second day running, all twenty-two of Sven's squad trained as they began to acclimatise to their new Slovakian surroundings this morning."Everybody is fit and we have no problems at all. There is a good spirit in the squad and hopefully tomorrow we will show that we are a very good team," Sven told the gathering media this afternoon.
A run-out in the sparse, open Stadium of Slovan Bratislava where they will take on Slovakia tomorrow evening, gave the England team a feel for what they can look forward to in the match.
A typical eastern European bowl-like stadium, the ground is similar to that in which England beat Albania 3-1 in their World Cup qualifier in March 2001. And with the gloomy weather like a true English October, Sven's men are experienced enough in this environment, yet the pitch is not like those many of England's top players regularly play on.
He added: "I hope they will cut the grass but if it keeps raining it will be difficult to cut it.
"The pitch is not what we're used to in England but whatever it's like you have to do your best on it and it's a disadvantage for both teams."
But Sven believes that his team is good enough to win, regardless of what kind of surface they are on.
"Hopefully the players will do a very good job out there for the 90 minutes.
"I've always said I think we have a team - when they're all fit - which can compete with any team in Europe and the world. I'm absolutely convinced about that."
"But to win a big, big tournament you have to be very lucky, although it's important to know you have a team who can compete with anyone."
He likened the qualification campaign with the Champions League, adding: "Qualifying games are like the Champions League.
"If you fail in one or two games you may be out. You cannot afford to fail in many things because there are only a few games.
"But I don't think about not winning - it's not nice at all.
"I would be very disappointed if we didn't - we're going to try and win at any cost."
