England boss Roy Hodgson admits that his side will not shy away from their attacking tactics in their World Cup clash with Uruguay on Thursday.

England boss Roy Hodgson has revealed that his side plan to attack Uruguay with the same intent they showed against Italy.

The Three Lions go into the game knowing that defeat could see them eliminated from the World Cup following their loss to the Azzurri in their opening match.

Hodgson's side showed promise going forward against Italy, and the 66-year-old has admitted that he does not plan to change that principle.

He told reporters: "We saw on Saturday night that even a top team like Italy got tested by the quality of our attacking play so we're not going to put any of our weapons down.

"Any weapon we've got we are going to try and use."

England face Uruguay in their Group D clash in Sao Paulo later today.
