Roy Hodgson: 'I was impressed with Under-21 display'

England manager Roy Hodgson reveals that he was impressed with the display of the Under-21 side against Scotland on Tuesday night.

England manager Roy Hodgson has insisted that many of the England Under-21 team that defeated Scotland on Tuesday evening are good enough to play for the senior side.

Hodgson oversaw their 6-0 victory after the departure of Stuart Pearce in the summer, and he has revealed that many took their chance to impress him ahead of the new season.

The former West Bromwich Albion boss told reporters: "It has certainly put the statements that English football has no talented players, and that we have nothing coming through, to bed.

"They really did take their chances with both hands, and a lot of those players would certainly not be out of place in the senior team."

Hodgson will now manage England against Scotland at Wembley on Wednesday night.
