Hoddle explains the three stages to Hodgson's thinking against Denmark

Former England manager Glenn Hoddle has told us what he believes Roy Hodgson's priorities will be for tonight's friendly against Denmark.

Speaking exclusively to ITV.com on his ITV Football debut, Hoddle said:

There will be three stages for Roy tonight - he will try to implement some tactical awareness on what he wants to do at the World Cup and see which players are astute enough to take it on board.

He'll look at some individuals - I think the lad Shaw will get a go, he knows what Cole and Baines can do. He'll be looking to see if the players can operate in the manner he will want for the Italy game.

Finally, he will be wanting to win the game, but I think tonight is about having a good performance out there.
