England's manager Roy Hodgson wants to lead England to Brazil but is frustrated that two high-profile Premier League fixtures are scheduled immediately before the national team's vital World Cup qualifiers.

When matches between big clubs are scheduled immediately before international breaks it is difficult for England players to rest up and prepare for key fixtures.

On the weekend of August 31-September 1 champions Manchester United take on Liverpool at Anfield and Arsenal play host to local rivals Tottenham Hotspur.

England's hopes of ending up in first place in Group H and avoiding a play-off, could rest on their final two games.

England host Montenegro on October 11, with Poland visiting Wembley four days later. There are no major Premier League fixtures slated in the run-up for those matches.

If England finish second and enter the draw for the play-offs, the first leg of the tie would be played on November 15.
