Stunning Danny Welbeck goal in 38th minute of first half, the highlight of an otherwise forgettable final Euro warm-up game against a Belgium side that won’t be at this summer’s tournament.

Once again, England were well drilled, work-man like with occasional surges that looked threatening as shown by Jermaine Dafoe who in the 80th minute hit the post, and then the side netting in the 90th.

Belgium did threaten at the end, but were clearly going threw the motions in a game that was really a warm-up for England who will face France on June 11.

As Roy Hodgson gets more confident and settled in his role, the approach he has taken to this side will hold them in good stead in Euro 2012 where they will confound their doubters and do well.
