England coach Roy Hodgson doesn't want a carpet ban on foreign players.

Hodgson does accept that foreign players in the Premier League are helping to raise the standard of football in this country.

He said: "We're getting the benefits of their culture and way of playing and that must be very educative for those players playing in those clubs.

"They will be learning not just from their coaches but also from the players around them, who have a lot of things to bring to the table."
