The England skipper told Sky Sports: "They made it very difficult for us the whole game but thankfully we got the goal and picked up three points.
"They are a very good side, they have got some great players in their team and made it difficult for us.
"They worked very hard all night and maybe they deserved something but thankfully we got three points.
"I think in the first half we got a little bit frustrated and were maybe too keen to get a goal. We had to be patient and wait for a chance because sooner or later it will come."
