England beat Belgium to travel to Euros on a high

Danny Welbeck's first half goal was enough to give England a slender 1-0 win over Belgium at Wembley. The result also means Roy Hodgson has now recorded two wins from two ahead of England's first real game of the tournament in Poland and Ukraine against France next Monday.

England started poorly and Gary Cahill was forced off early on and required an X-ray on his jaw after he was shoved into Joe Hart during a Belgian attack.

The home side used the ball poorly for much of the first and rarely threatened the Beglian goal.

Danny Welbeck's opportunistic goal just before half time finally gave the fans something to shout about.

The United youngster becoming England's youngest goalscorer since September 2008 and looked to have forced his way into Hodgson's plans.

Jermaine Defoe came close but was denied by the frame of the goal

Belgium had a chance and came closed when Guillaume Gillet's rising shot rattled the post with 10 minutes left.

Defore instantly replied but the Tottenham striker was also denied by the upright.

A slight worry for England fans as Steven Gerrard looked uncomfortable as he departed.

It capped off a poor week injury wise for manager Roy Hodgson, who has already lost experienced central midfield duo Frank Lampard and Gareth Barry to injury.

We need to do better in lots of ways. We need to have really high standards. We need to trust each other more on the ball. I think we'll perform differently when it comes to France. It's going to be a neutral venue, it's going to be tough but we are going to be united as a side
