Scotland 1 England 3

Roy Hodgson

Scot­land 1 Eng­land 3, Celt­ic Park, In­ter­na­tion­al Friendly Mat­ch, Nov­ember 18, 2014. Eng­land boss Roy Hodg­son was well pleased wi­th the play­ing per­form­ance of his young te­am fol­low­ing the friendly fix­ture wi­th Scot­land at a full packed Celt­ic Park. The Three Li­ons emer­ged vic­tori­ous to the tune of a 3-1 score ag­ainst The Tartan Ter­ri­ers cour­tesy of a fir­st-ha­lf goal by Al­ex Oxlade-Cham­ber­lain and two goals from Way­ne Roo­ney af­ter the break.

Fol­low­ing the con­fid­ence-boost­ing 3-1 win over Scot­land in Glas­gow, Roy Hodg­son de­cided to pick out Way­ne Roo­ney for some ex­tra spe­cial praise. Roo­ney had be­en in ex­cel­lent form and the free-scor­ing at­tack­er had con­trib­uted three goals in his two last mat­ches for Eng­land. Al­though still in his twen­ties, the meil­leur mar­queur had so far notched up an im­press­ive total of 45 goals in 101 seni­or ap­pear­ances for his coun­try and Hodg­son had noth­ing but praise for the play­er. Roy Hodg­son: “Way­ne Roo­ney has got to be de­lighted wi­th his few days from Sat­urday to now; fir­st he picks up his cap and a goal and today he has sco­red two in a ga­me where we have beaten Scot­land away.” Scot­land Te­am: Da­vid Mar­shall, Grant Han­ley, Andy Robert­son, Rus­sell Mar­tin, Char­lie Mul­grew, Ste­ven Whit­taker, Scott Bro­wn, Ike­chi An­ya, Shaun Malo­ney, Ste­ven Na­i­s­mith, Chris Mar­tin.
