VIDEO: Hart focused on France
Monday, 04 June, 2012
Joe Hart happy with win over Belgium, but immediately sets sights on France.
England goalkeeper Joe Hart hailed England's resilience under new Manager Roy Hodgson as they won 1-0 for the second match in a row - and has now set his sights on facing France at Euro 2012.
Hart was asked if Hodgson has made the Three Lions more difficult to beat after they fought their way to a narrow win over Belgium thanks to a goal from Danny Welbeck - just days after edging past Norway in Oslo by the same score.
"It seems that way." he said. "We've been very resilient and Danny took his goal superbly today. We only had one chance in the first 70 minutes and that was Danny's; so it's always a help when you have top quality strikers who take those kind of chances.
"Overall it was a good run out and I thought we played well," he continued.
"We were a little bit bitty at times but we came through. It was good to get the result because this is a very strong Belgium side who are going to be good in the future. Vincent Kompany told me about them and said they are coming good and I totally agree with him.
"We need to improve in all areas and we need to have really high standards.
"We need to trust each other more on the ball and we've discussed that and we're going to do that.
"Hopefully it's just coming up nice for the France game. I'm pretty sure we're going to perform differently when it comes to France. It's going to be a neutral venue and it's going to be tough.
"But we'll have a great group of fans behind us and we will be united as a side and we'll give it a real good go."
