Sakiri: England easier than Andorra

England have come under fire from Macedonia midfielder Artim Sakiri, who has claimed Steve McClaren's men were 'easier opponents than Andorra'.

The attack follows England's drab 0-0 draw against Macedonia in Saturday's Euro 2008 qualifier at Old Trafford.

Sakiri, who was on the bench for the game, said: 'It is easier to play against England than Andorra.

'Andorra played with 11 players 20 yards from goal and just kicked the ball away. England had confidence at the start but saw it wasn't as easy as they thought. I was expecting more attacking play from them.'

Sakiri was in the Macedonia team beaten 1-0 by Andorra in a World Cup qualifier two years ago.

He added: 'I don't know if they will qualify for the European Championships. If they play like that again they will struggle. They have to do better. The game in Croatia will be very tough.'
