England boss Hodgson impressed by Cleverley, Chelsea pair Bertrand, Sturridge

England coach Roy Hodgson was impressed by Team GB trio Danny Sturridge, Tom Cleverley and Ryan Bertrand in the Olympics.

It seems Sturridge, Bertrand (both Chelsea) and Cleverley (Manchester United) - the latter duo are both uncapped - are in contention for a call-up.

"Most of them are pretty much ready anyway, but one or two of the younger players like Bertrand and Sturridge and players like Tom Cleverley, who is coming back from injury, may have not been quite so much a fixture in their teams," Hodgson told FATV.

"Let's hope the Olympic experience with Team GB has given them a better chance of staking a claim for a regular spot."
