'Disappointed' Roy Hodgson challenges England players to excite him after Netherlands defeat

The Three Lions lost to the Netherlands 2-1 at Wembley

Roy Hodgson was disappointed after England failed to build on their thrilling win over Germany and challenged his players to excite him between now and the end of the season.

The Three Lions lost to the Netherlands 2-1 at Wembley despite taking the lead through Jamie Vardy in the first half.

And Hodgson rued the lack of intensity and creativity shown on Tuesday night and claimed his side failed to recreate the atmosphere that they experienced in Berlin on Saturday night.

“We’re very disappointed,” said Hodgson. “We didn’t reach the levels of intensity that we did on Saturday and I didn’t think we were as creative as we were.

“I thought we had control over the game and didn’t seem to be in danger defensively very often.

“We needed to create a lot more chances to recreate the buzz that you saw against Germany. That was missing.

“At 1-0 I was hoping we would kick on and get a second goal.

“The players must keep taking their game forward, or continuing the quality of their game between now and the end of the season and I hope their performances will continue to excite me and give me hope for France.”
