Manchester United ace Ashley Young was delighted to prove England's matchwinner after victory over Norway.

Young is hoping he caught Roy Hodgson's eye ahead of Euro 2012 after linking up with Andy Carroll in attack.

"I think I did all right," he said. "I took the goal well.

"It was tough out there but it's all about preparing for the Euros now and it was good to get a win.

"I've just got to keep putting on a performance and we'll see what happens when it comes to the Euros.

"I think it went well with Andy Carroll. We've worked on the partnership during training and there were a few good combinations between us."

Young also believes Hodgson's arrival has had a positive effect after a short time together.

"We got the win," he said. "This game and next week's game is all about preparing.

"We've only been together with the new manager for a few days but I think it's gone okay so far."
