The Three Lions boss believes that Group H could be decided by goal difference, stressing the importance of big victories against the lower-ranked teams.
"There are 90,000 coming to watch the game, we want to win the game and we'd like to do that by scoring a few goals," The Mirror quotes Hodgson as saying.
"I'm not prepared to quantify what a good result is. You'll only know that next October, at the end of the competition - if it's a case of goal difference.
"A good result is a win and a good performance. I want to see evidence that they're doing what I want them to do, whether that's 1-0 or 10-0."
