Hodgson impressed by Welbeck cool

Published Add your comment

Manager Roy Hodgson saluted the coolness of Danny Welbeck after the Manchester United striker scored the goal which sent England off to Euro 2012 on a note of optimism.

Welbeck's first-half strike gave England a 1-0 win against Belgium at Wembley to go with their 1-0 victory against Norway in Oslo last weekend. They now leave for Poland and Ukraine where they face France in Donetsk a week on Monday with Hodgson admitting he is much closer to knowing his best team.

Hodgson said: "It was a very good goal. I was delighted with the way he (Welbeck) took it and delighted with the way they (Welbeck and Ashley Young) fashioned it. It was a good piece of work from the two front players."
