England will target a 100% record in their Euro 2016 qualifying campaign when they travel to Lithuania on Monday.

Roy Hodgson's men are a perfect nine for nine in qualification so far, and a win against Lithuania in Vilnius will mean they are only the fifth team in qualifying history to finish with a perfect record.

"We don't stand up and shout it from the rooftops every time, but it's not a bad achievement," Hodgson said. "Basically we keep our feet on the ground. We know there's lots of tough games ahead.

"We know it's next summer that really counts, but we're working hard to improve going forward into that competition."

Hodgson is set to go with an experimental team for this final qualifier, with Wayne Rooney, amongst several other players, who have not travelled for the match against Lithuania.

Jack Butland will make his competitive debut for England, while Phil Jagielka will captain the national team for the first time from minute one.

"I have been delighted to wear the armband in games before, leading up to the World Cup and the San Marino game, but I have never had the opportunity to lead a side out," Jagielka said.

"It is something I do on a regular basis at home with my club but to do it for my country it did not even seem like a dream. It was that far-fetched. Growing up I just wanted to be a footballer – captaining the country would be something you never thought about.

"If you look at the different milestones it is something you can tell the kids. I am sure a lot of people who have played a part in my career along the way will be absolutely delighted for me. They have helped me succeed in one of the biggest achievements you can have as a footballer."

While beating Lithuania and finishing with a 100 percent record will be the icing on a nice-tasting qualification cake, the real test for England will begin in November, when they play friendlies against the likes of France, Spain and Germany.
