England coach Roy Hodgson has told fans its okay to dream of Euros glory.

Hodgson is content that expectation levels are rising in England after the opening two games but he can give no guarantee of success even though a point will ensure a last-eight spot.

He said: "You try and play football, and international football, to try and get carried away. Dreaming is what football is about.

"I think we've got to be happy that expectations have risen and people are maybe thinking we can go a bit further than when we started the competition.

"That doesn't mean to say we can guarantee success or fulfil those expectations.

"It is nice to know after the first couple of games there is a bit more belief in the team and the team has belief in itself.

"But we are talking about individual matches and cup finals. A lot of things can happen in 90 minutes that you as a football team cannot control.

"We've already seem some very good teams go out of this competition but at least we feel now we've given ourselves a chance."
