Former Arsenal and England defender Martin Keown says Roy Hodgson was rewarded for his bold changes in victory over Sweden.

Keown wrote in the Daily Mail: "I want to praise the manager Roy Hodgson. He made positive substitutions, especially Theo Walcott who scored and then created the winning goal for Danny Welbeck with his electric pace.

"The change was bold and he was rewarded with the comeback.

"This is new for Hodgson, but he got the big decisions right on the night."
