    "I know he was very disappointed not to get it in that game against Holland. He's both the ideal leader and that ideal player for that team, and for Roy."

    EURO 2012

    Phil McNulty recalls his favourite moment of Euro 2012 so far, saying: "One of England's moments of Euro 2012 was the fist-pumping reaction of the normally reserved Roy Hodgson when Andy Carroll powered in Steven Gerrard's cross with a picturebook header against Sweden. The response of a man whose plan had come together perfectly."

  63. 1414:  
    EURO 2012

    Comolli said: "As soon as his name was mentioned, I thought he was the ideal candidate. It was such short notice that they would need someone who has experience of international competition and of this type of tournament. He's got a vast amount of experience and that's why I thought it was ideal."

  64. 1413:  
    EURO 2012

    Comolli added: "There is togetherness you can see on the pitch, the way they defended against France and the way they came back from 2-1 down against Sweden. They definitely created spirit in that team. Without spirit, see Holland. Holland was the perfect example of self-destruction. So many talents but nobody wants to play with each other, only selfishness. England is totally the opposite."

  65. 1412:  
    EURO 2012

    Comolli added: "He thought 'if we want to be successful there is one way to do it and that is going to be that way'. The players brought into it very quickly and it's obvious he, his backroom staff and the players have managed to create something. They gelled together straight away."

  66. 1408:  
    EURO 2012

    Comolli said: "His experience and his knowledge of the international game is fantastic. Where he did really well is he went straight to the point, he knew where he was going, he knew how to do it because he's been to those tournaments before, because he's got experience of managing national teams before."

  67. 1410:  
    EURO 2012

    BBC Sport's David Ornstein has interviewed former Liverpool director of football Damien Comolli and asked him about Roy Hodgson's role with England. He worked with Hodgson during his time at Anfield.

    Robbie Savage looks at the prospects for the rest of the tournament: "Spain are beatable, no question - defensively they can be got at. France lost last night to Sweden, and nobody has played that well that you can say that they're outright favourites. There are three games left and England have a chance, no question about it.

    "They'd have snapped your hand off for this before the tournament because this is not the strongest Italian team ever. They have a real chance."

  73. 1344:  
    EURO 2012

    BBC Sport commentator Simon Brotherton assesses the prospects for the quarter-finals: "Surely Spain won't play as badly as they did against Croatia - they were awful - and they need to play better or they're going home.

    "England have a chance against Italy, who really aren't bad quarter-final opponents, and Portugal and Germany should win.

    "The real strength of the tournament is that every game has been good and they're so hard to call. It's a shame that it will be diluted in four years but maybe Uefa want too much of a good thing."

  74. 1337:  
    EURO 2012

    Robbie Savage on what he would change for the Italy game: "In the quarter-final Walcott has to start instead of Milner or Young. The attacking thing would be to play Walcott and Young, and leave Milner out but I think that Roy likes Milner. If he plays one attacking winger, he likes solid on the other side.

    "Walcott has to start and that would be the only change I would make."

    Robbie Savage on what to expect from England when they face Italy in Kiev on Sunday: "It's a Roy Hodgson team and we know what to expect from what we've seen in the friendlies and in the tournament.

    "Italy will have more possession and England will soak it up, but they've got an exceptional goalkeeper in Joe Hart and they'll try to hit them on the break."

    Scott Parker discusses England's strengths and how they could help progress even further at Euro 2012: "Everyone talks about Spain and how great they are at passing the ball. Not every team is as good as Spain - that's the reality.

    BBC Sport's Richard Conway sends us his observations on England from Krakow: "The sun had already risen by the time the England team arrived back at their hotel in Krakow. The players looked tired but there were lots of happy faces. Ashley Cole took the time to wander over to some fans who were calling his name and posed for pictures with them.

    "The squad will spend today recovering from their victory over Ukraine and their flight home. But we can expect to see them training later this week as Roy Hodgson starts work on a plan to get England to a tournament semi-final for the first time since 1996.

    "Hodgson is happy to let the levels of expectation build over his team's prospects. As he put it earlier this week, England are starting to dream of what might, just might, be possible."

    EURO 2012

    BBC Sport commentator Jonathan Pearce thinks a few people will be sad to see Sweden return home after the group stage.

    "We were really disappointed with France, and myself and Martin Keown even thought they looked lethargic in the warm-up," he says.

    "The Swedes have played an important role in this tournament - they've embraced Kiev, they really helped break down the Ukrainians' suspicion of foreigners, and they got their rewards with a win that included a great goal from Zlatan Ibrahimovic."

    Robbie Savage on England's progress: "It's a job well done. They topped the group and they've probably done more than you'd expect at this stage because everyone thought France would do it.

    "Steven Gerrard has been exceptional in the three games, he has risen to the challenge of being captain. Joe Hart has performed well, and Wayne Rooney's come back and got a goal. He's got 90 minutes under his belt, and with him in the team England have got a chance.

    "His hair must have been in his eyes for the first 20 minutes, but he's world class and things are looking positive for England.

    "A few other players need to step up to the mark, but overall I'd say it's six or seven out of 10 - doing OK but can do much better."

    "I just thought that Ukraine are fiftieth in the world and England should be beating teams like that, whether it's in front of a partisan crowd in Ukraine or whatever," he says.

    "If England want to be taken seriously in this competition they should have won that game, and they did. It was a solid performance and they weren't very good in possession again.

    "In the three games every other team has had more possession, there has been a lot of negativity but England fans and everyone connected should get behind them."
