Roy Hodgson has challenged England's players to reproduce the form they demonstrate week in and out at domestic level when they launch their Euro 2012 campaign against France in Donetsk.
Hodgson has praised the squad for enabling him to settle in quickly as head coach during the past month. But now he is aware of the need for them to show what they are capable of against a French side unbeaten in 21 matches.
"I just hope we are capable of playing the way they can do. We see them do week in and week out in the Barclays Premier League playing to the best of their ability," Hodgson said.
