Speaking to ITV Sport after the game, the Manchester United skipper said: "We defended well as a team which was important. We caught them well on the break with the speed we've been talking about. Danny got two great goals, I'm delighted for him.
"We've put the work in, we worked on our defensive shape when we haven't got the ball and then springing from defence to attack, which you saw with the two goals tonight.
"We played some great stuff today. We're pleased. The things we've worked on the training ground have paid off, so it's a happy performance for us."
Meanwhile, Three Lions boss Hodgson said that he was hoping to see his side take confidence from the win.
