Friendly match England 1-0 Norway

Coach Hodgson reacts:

“In the end I thought we were good value for our victory.

“The injection of pace of Danny Welbeck, Fabian Delph and James Milner and a slight change in the system meant we got back on top again and started to create chances.

“The good thing with the players we have at the moment is that many are playing early matches in their international career and it’s good that we have these options.

“We definitely changed the way we were playing in terms of system with about 20-25 minutes to go and I thought that worked well too when Welbeck came in behind Daniel Sturridge.

“I thought that got us going as well and in the end with a little bit of luck we would have aggravated the score. The important thing was the victory.”

 “We started the second half poorly and I was disappointed by our first 10-15 minutes at the start of the second half.

“Joe Hart had to make a couple of saves having been pretty much a bystander in the first half but luckily we got ourselves going again.”
