Roy Hodgson: 'Estonia were hard work'

England manager Roy Hodgson admits that Estonia were "hard work" after earning a 1-0 win in this evening's Euro 2016 Group E qualifier in Tallinn.

England manager Roy Hodgson has praised his charges for overcoming frustrating spells to see off Estonia in this evening's Euro 2016 Group E qualifier in Tallinn.

Wayne Rooney struck the game's only goal from a free kick to maintain the Three Lions' 100% record on the road to France.

Hodgson told BBC Sport after the game: "It was hard work. We played well in the first half without taking our chances and that meant that there was an air of frustration setting in.

"Everyone was aware that when you have played well you have to take at least one chance. Luckily we did that in the second half and it's four wins in a row which is not to be sniffed at."

England's next qualifier is at home to Slovenia on November 15.
