Midfielder Ashley Young believes England's two friendly wins under Roy Hodgson have given the team plenty of confidence heading into their Euro 2012 opener with France on Monday.

Hodgson has begun his regime with 1-0 victories at Norway in Oslo and Belgium at Wembley, with Young scoring the decisive goal against the former. And the Manchester United star thinks the way England approached those games has given the squad cause for optimism ahead of their Group D opener with Les Bleus in Donetsk.

"Everybody in the squad is feeling confident ahead of that game and I'm sure if we can go out there and create the displays we've shown in the last couple of games, we can go out there and get a good result," Young said.
