BBC Sport - World Cup 2014: Roy Hodgson pleased with England performance

Plenty of positives - Hodgson

Manager Roy Hodgson believes there are many positives England can take out of their 2-1 defeat to Italy.

Mario Balotelli's header just after the break settled the game in Italy's favour, but Hodgson feels his side dominated the second half.

Despite the loss, Hodgson remains upbeat about England's chances of qualifying for the second round, with Uruguay up next on Thursday, 19 June.
