England feel confident - Young
Ashley Young says there is a great confidence in the England squad after two friendly wins ahead of their Euro 2012 opener against France.
Young: Hopeful of good start
Hodgson has begun his regime with 1-0 victories at Norway in Oslo and Belgium at Wembley, with Young scoring the decisive goal against the former.
And the Manchester United star says the way England approached those games has given the squad cause for optimism ahead of their Group D opener with Les Bleus in Donetsk.
"Everybody in the squad is feeling confident ahead of that game and I'm sure if we can go out there and create the displays we've shown in the last couple of games, we can go out there and get a good result," Young said at a press conference on Saturday afternoon.
"If you look at the two games we've had under him (Hodgson), the organisation has been different to previous games and I think it's helped.
"The two 1-0 wins were good wins, especially the way we kept our shape and managed to get ourselves forward and get the goals.
"I think it's going to be important to do that on Monday."
