England coach Hodgson delighted with Man Utd striker Welbeck after Belgium goal

England coach Roy Hodgson was pleased with matchwinner Danny Welbeck after victory over Belgium.

The Manchester United striker struck the only goal of the friendly.

Hodgson said: "It was a very good goal. I was delighted with the way he (Welbeck) took it and delighted with the way they (Welbeck and Ashley Young) fashioned it. It was a good piece of work from the two front players.

"They worked well together to pressurise the Belgium defence.

"When Ashley played him in I thought he showed remarkable calmness to keep his head on his left foot and chip it over the goalkeeper.

"That for me was the highlight of the game."
