England manager Roy Hodgson stated that he was not happy with the performances of his players in the draw with Republic of Ireland. England could only manage a 0-0 draw in the first friendly during the summer.
This result is not the ideal preparation ahead of the team’s away game against Slovenia. The former Liverpool boss is expecting much better performances – especially from captain Wayne Rooney – when the team travel to the Eastern European country.
England appear to be extremely comfortable in the Euro 2016 qualification stages after having won five out of the opening five games. This has seen them establish a healthy six-point advantage with only a couple of matches left.
