Hodgson Insists England Can Bounce Back

England manager, Roy Hodgson, believes his side will bounce back from the 2-1 loss to Italy.
 
Mario Balotelli scored the decisive goal to condemned the Three Lions defeat but the former Liverpool boss insists his side can still qualify.
 
"That is the best I've seen the team play during my time with them," said Hodgson.
 
We can still qualify. We are downhearted and sad. We were hoping for a perfect start but we don't live in a perfect world. I've got great confidence still and the players will get over this.
 
"We are trying to be a positive team. When we get the ball we want to go forward. We had some good chances to score and in the second half we did everything but score.
 
“The final ball was a bit disappointing because we are better than that. It's something to work on but we're a young team and it's a first World Cup for two thirds of this squad.
 
"Raheem Sterling was dangerous throughout the game, Daniel Sturridge was excellent all the way through. It's tough to accept that we've lost, Joe Hart has had a quiet evening."
