England's Hodgson looking to exploit French defence

England manager Roy Hodgson says his side can really get at France's defenders in Monday's Euro2012 fixture.

The Three Lions meet Les Bleus in Donetsk in Group D and Hodgson feels his wingers can exploit Laurent Blanc's full-backs.

"We need to make sure they break quickly and maybe use some of the spaces that they are going to leave behind when their two full-backs are as offensive as they were in the recent matches," Hodgson told William Hill.

"With [Mathieu] Debuchy and [Patrice] Evra they play very, very high up the field so we have to make sure we try and exploit those spaces."
