England manager Roy Hodgson insists that there is still room for improvement in the side following their 2-0 win over Switzerland.

Roy Hodgson has said that England can still improve following their win over Switzerland in their opening Euro 2016 qualifier this evening.

A second-half brace from Danny Welbeck ensured that the team claimed all three points in their first match of the qualifying campaign.

The manager told ITV Sport: "I thought the way we approached the game from the first minute was exactly what we wanted and we got our reward. We pressurised the ball well, but you need that first goal to get people to come out and attack you.

"From then I thought we looked dangerous and we had several chances to aggravate the scoreline before Danny Welbeck's second.

"I think we can improve on how we see out the game, but you have to expect that some players will show a little naivety in that area."

England face San Marino in their next qualifier in October.
