England Manager Roy Hodgson declared himself delighted with his team's victory over Belgium and is keeping his fingers crossed that injuries to Gary Cahill and John Terry do not prove to be serious.
Both Cahill and Terry had to be substituted but Danny Welbeck's goal ensured a morale-boosting victory ahead of the Euro 2012 Finals.
Hodgson said: "Of course I'm very pleased. It's been a hard week and we used a lot of players.
"There was a lot of disruption in the second half - some forced upon us and some we wanted to do. But it's still a very good end to the week. We were playing a very good Belgium team here who are arguably even stronger than the Norwegian team we played last week.
"So have to be more than happy we came out with another victory."
Hodgson now hopes Terry and Cahill will recover quickly, adding: "Cahill is slightly more of a concern because it's a jaw injury.
"We're desperately hoping the CT scan doesn't show any fracture and it's just bruising; which would be bad enough but wouldn't stop him taking part in the tournament.
"As for John he just felt his hamstring a little bit. Again, it wasn't a major thing but we still need to scan it to be 100 per cent sure."
