England 1-0 Denmark – International Friendly – 5th March 2014
International friendlies are always difficult to call, what with the endless substitutions and managerial experiments, but against Denmark on Wednesday night, a Liverpool-heavy England produced a patchy display.
In-form striker Daniel Sturridge did net the winner late on after some superb work from sub Adam Lallana but for large periods of the game the hosts struggled to create enough decent chances while Kasper Schmeichel repelled whatever efforts on goal the Three Lions did muster. However, a win is a win and with Lallana and team-mate Luke Shaw impressing, as well as Liverpool’s Raheem Sterling, there was still enough for Roy Hodgson to be satisfied with.
