Hodgson happy to have England selection problem

England boss Roy Hodgson saw an under strength team dispose of San Marino 5-0 at Wembley leaving him with a welcome selection conundrum ahead of the game in Poland on Tuesday night.

"We try to utilise the squad for the two games, and maybe keep some players back from the San Marino game," Hodgson said.

"We have a lot of players who didn't play against San Marino available tomorrow night so have quite a good option. Unfortunately we didn't recover Frank Lampard or Ryan Bertrand but other than that we have a full squad to choose from and quite a few players who didn't take part at all against San Marino."

"There are quite a few (selection decisions) and that's good to have," Hodgson added. "I'd prefer not to quantify them or put them in any order, but it's good that the players who came in against San Marino who people did not see as first choice played well.

"You do get more a selection headache, but all coaches will tell you selection headaches are what we're after."
