Eng­land 1 Den­mark 0, Wemb­ley Sta­dium, In­ter­na­tion­al Friendly Mat­ch, Mar­ch 5, 2014. Fol­low­ing the vic­tory ag­ainst Den­mark at Wemb­ley, Eng­land man­ager Roy Hodg­son told the press that he was im­pressed by his  young and ex­per­i­ment­al si­de. The Three Li­ons won the in­ter­na­tion­al friendly clash wi­th the Danes by a nar­row score of 1-0 thanks to a late sec­ond ha­lf goal from Liver­pool flanker Dan­iel Stur­ridge in the 82th min­ute of proceedings.

Roy Hodg­son es­pe­cially sing­led out de­fenders Ash­ley Cole and Lu­ke Shaw for some ex­tra praise af­ter the mid­week friendly en­counter ag­ainst Morten Olsen´s Den­mark. Roy Hodg­son: “I tho­ught that Ash­ley Cole and Lu­ke Shaw were bo­th very good. It is a tough­er de­cision for me now, yes, but there is a lot of mat­ches still to be played. I will see a lot of Leigh­ton Baines, Cole, and Shaw dur­ing the com­ing months. I was not sur­prised wi­th Cole as I am a great ad­mirer of him. I have watched Cole dur­ing train­ing and he has be­en un­be­liev­ably good, and very fit, right at the top of the run­ning stat­ist­ics, so there is no ques­tion about his fit­ness. But Ash­ley Cole is a spe­cial­ist play­er. You do not nor­mally play two left full­backs in the te­am and, at the very mo­ment, his man­ager at club level prefers someone else.” Eng­land Te­am: Joe Hart, Glen John­son, Ga­ry Ca­hill, Chris Small­ing, Ash­ley Cole, Jor­dan Hen­derson, Ste­ven Ger­rard, Jack Wil­shere, Ra­heem Ster­ling, Way­ne Roo­ney, Dan­iel Stur­ridge.
