Wideman says new-look 4-3-3 v Wales was developed in training.
Ashley Young thought England’s new formation worked wonders against Wales.
Manager Fabio Capello chose a new-look 4-3-3 system for the clash at the Millennium Stadium, which the Three Lions won 2-0, and the England players seemed to enjoy the new set up.
Villa midfielder Young said: “It was good. We worked on it in training and everyone knew their job, knew what they were doing and it worked.
“We worked on getting the ball back as soon as we lost it, we wanted to get the ball back as quickly as possible and put them under pressure. We went out and got the penalty and we just wanted to kick on from there. We got the second goal and felt confident in the first half.
“We knew they were going to come out in the second half and we had to defend really well, which we did.
“We look forward to the next game. We’ll take the victory today and concentrate on the next game when it comes."
