England manager Roy Hodgson says he wants to "bottle" the quality his players are showing in training and use it against Italy in the World Cup on June 14.

Hodgson and captain Steven Gerrard were speaking ahead of England's friendly against Peru at Wembley on Friday and Gerrard says the standard is high with "two great players fighting for each position".

The team also received a visit at their St George's Park base on Thursday from Prime Minister David Cameron, and Hodgson said he was very happy that the Prime Minister "went out of his way" to wish the team well.
