Manchester City midfielder James Milner says England's players are full of confidence after their friendly win over Brazil.

Milner felt it was the latest indication of how England are developing under Roy Hodgson ahead of the World Cup qualifiers with San Marino and Montenegro.

He said: "Every time you play Brazil, you are playing one of the best sides in the world. To get a win like that at Wembley gives you a lot of confidence.

"It was a good performance as well and we can take a lot of confidence from it, even though it was a friendly.

"We know that if, hopefully, we do qualify, and come up against those teams again, we are well-equipped. We know we can get a win against them."
