England recently lost their manager in the form of Fabio Capello, who resigned from his duty after falling out with the English football Association.

The English football Association decided to remove the captain's armband from Chelsea captain John Terry, which has provoked an angry response from Fabio Capello.

Following the Italian's departure, the England football Association is currently searching for a manager who can replace the former Real Madrid manager. Harry Redknapp is one of the favourites to take over from Fabio Capello. Whoever takes charge from Fabio Capello, will have to face the prospect of qualifying England to the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

England will be starting their qualification process in the match against Moldova. The reason fixture list that has been revealed by FIFA confirmed that Moldova will be the first opponents for England in the race to qualify for the 2014 FIFA World Cup to be held in Brazil. This is not the first time England will be facing Moldova as their first opponents in a World Cup qualifying match. In the build-up to the 1998 FIFA World Cup, England first faced Moldova. It was a match that also saw the debut of David Beckham at the international stage.

"We are very pleased to have reached an agreement so quickly today. It was important for us to avoid dates in June. We have managed to agree fixtures similar to those we set out to achieve. There was good co-operation in the room and Poland organised the event extremely well," said Club England managing director Adrian Bevington.

Meanwhile, England will also be facing the likes of San Marino and Montenegro in the first five matches of the 2014 World Cup qualification. This will ensure that they get the points on the board initially before facing the stronger teams.
