Former England boss Glenn Hoddle is delighted to see Tottenham winger Aaron Lennon at the top of his game.

Hoddle says the improvement of Lennon's crossing is what now sets him apart.

"That's the only part of his game that he needed to work on and it looks like he's getting the confidence," Hoddle said. "He's playing well for Tottenham and now he's playing well for England. He's always got the pace and I think he's attacking defenders now at a different angle that gives him more of an opportunity to go on the outside.

"His end product is always something he needed to improve on and he's starting to show those improvements. If you have someone with that kind of pace it's a fantastic 'get-out.'

"It gets the team up the pitch quickly and allows [Frank] Lampard, [Steven] Gerrard and [Wayne] Rooney to hit the box. If he keeps playing like that he'll be a major threat."
