Morten Olsen issues England warning

ESPN FC's Craig Burley and Steve Nicol give their take on whether England will be able to get out of the group stage in the World Cup.

Denmark coach Morten Olsen was less than convinced by England during his side’s 1-0 defeat at Wembley, telling the postmatch news conference: “I wish you good luck in the World Cup -- you need it.”

Brewin: Lallana and Sturridge shine
Smith: England should play long game
Hodgson: Work still to be done

England, fielding a host of young players, were kept at bay for much of Wednesday night’s friendly by a fine performance from goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, but they finally made the breakthrough in the 82nd minute when fine work from substitute Adam Lallana allowed Daniel Sturridge to head home.

However, the visitors also had chances and Olsen -- who has been in charge of the Danes since 2000 -- felt it would have been a different result had Tottenham playmaker Christan Eriksen been fit.

"I think we would have won if Christian Eriksen was playing, because we had the space. With him it would have been a different game,” he said. “They had chances and Schmeichel had an excellent day, but we also had some chances.”

He added: “I think that England have a young team with a lot of quickness. It's promising for the future but is it enough for the World Cup?”

He signed off by warning England would need luck in the summer, but Roy Hodgson insisted he was not concerned by the remark.

“To suggest that someone wishing you good luck should be regarded as negative surprises me,” he said. “I don't care about that. Every team will need good luck. We didn't need it tonight, that's for sure.”

After the friendly defeats to Chile and Germany late last year, Hodgson was pleased to see his young side return to winning ways.

“Over half of the players we have in this squad are under 23,” he said. “We are looking in that direction, but I don't feel under obligation to pick kids. The younger players are doing well at the moment. Hopefully you will be impressed with their performances, and I'll have to make a decision going forward.

“[Luke] Shaw and Lallana were very good. You couldn't get me to say anything negative about any of the young players today. I was very pleased with [Raheem] Sterling, Sturridge and I couldn't see any negatives.

“At one stage we only had Gary Cahill, Joe Hart, Glen Johnson and Steven Gerrard who would consider themselves seniors. The others were finding their way, and yet we still didn't give Denmark a sniff at our goal.

“That's a positive thing. I wanted the young players to have a chance to get out there and play, and I'm sure Shaw and Lallana will go back to Southampton feeling very positive.”
