Liverpool defender Nathaniel Clyne says he hopes he has handed Roy Hodgson a selection headache with his performance against Slovakia.
The Reds right-back was one of six, much criticised, changes the England boss made to his starting line-up for the clash against Slovakia but he was a rarity as he shone.
He took the spot occupied by Tottenham’s Kyle Walker, who himself had been one of the most outstanding players in the opening two group games, and he now hopes he has given Hodgson something to think about for the last 16.
“I was pleased with my performance,” Clyne said. “The manager made changes and we all came in and done well.
“We dominated the game from start to finish.
“It was a bit frustrating that we didn’t get the goal which would have won us the game. It’s good that everyone is fighting for positions, makes the team healthy, makes everyone push harder.”
