Roy Hodgson eager to experiment with England following Euro 2016 qualification

England manager Roy Hodgson says that he will use his side's early qualification from their Euro 2016 qualifying group to experiment with new players and tactics.

England manager Roy Hodgson has claimed that he will use his side's early qualification from their Euro 2016 qualifying group to experiment with new players and tactics.

The Three Lions thrashed San Marino 6-0 in Serravalle to book their passage to the tournament finals in France next year with three games to spare.

Hodgson told BBC Sport: "I'm not sure early qualification gives us any particular advantage because we are going to take a lot of time to plan and improve anyway.

"What it could do is give me the opportunity for experimentation because we did not get that ahead of the World Cup when we had to win our last two qualifiers to get to Brazil."

England host Switzerland and Estonia at Wembley before wrapping up the Group E qualifiers with an away fixture against Lithuania.
