England coach Roy Hodgson dismissed criticism of their style of play during the Euros.
Hodgson confirmed he will name an experimental line-up in Augustâ€™s friendly against Italy but rejected the idea England have to radically alter their style.
â€śI donâ€™t regard statistics, and especially possession statistics, as particularly important when saying which is a good team and which is a bad team,â€ť he said. â€śBut if you are saying to me we could have kept the ball better at times and could have made more use of the good situations we got into, Iâ€™d have to agree with that.
â€śI think all the players realise that too. Thatâ€™s an area where we have to keep working and keep improving but I donâ€™t think statistics alone play a big part.
â€śWe have enough quality in our players to match any style we want, but in this tournament we didnâ€™t have a lot of time to prepare and although we defended well throughout, we could have attacked better.â€ť
