England midfielder James Milner admits the success of Manchester City and Chelsea over the last few weeks can only be of benefit to the national team.

City won the Premier League with two late goals against QPR while Chelsea claimed the Champions League title last Saturday and Milner admits the confidence gained from such triumphs can rub off on England.

Speaking at a press conference ahead of the friendly with Norway on Saturday, Milner said: "Our players are going to the tournament high on confidence. Winning is a habit and you want to get into those habits of winning trophies and get into that winning mentality."
