Scott Parker praised England's big hearts and commitment after they held France to a 1-1 draw in their opening Euro 2012 clash.
But the Tottenham midfielder is unsure whether such qualities alone will be sufficient to win tournaments. Midfielder Parker played a key part in helping to stifle the threat of France who dominated possession and were the better side during the second half.
Parker said: "I think it was a good result and something for us to build on. We did pretty well. The one thing we showed was a lot of big hearts, courage and commitment. Whether that wins you tournaments, I don't know. But it is a base for us to build on and hopefully we can do that."
