Jack Wilshere says that England picked up a "great result" by beating Switzerland 2-0 in their opening Euro 2016 qualifier.

England midfielder Jack Wilshere has said that the team's 2-0 victory over Switzerland in Basel is a "great result".

Roy Hodgson's side secured the win in the opening match of their Euro 2016 qualification campaign thanks to a second-half brace from Danny Welbeck.

"It was a great result. I said in the week we expected to come here and get a result," Wilshere told the FA's official website.

"We didn't surprise ourselves. I know a few people have been saying a few things but we believed in ourselves and we showed that tonight.

"We knew the longer the second half went on at 0-0, they weren't going to be happy, the fans weren't going to be happy and we used that."

England host San Marino in their next qualifier on October 9.
