England Manager lauds his side’s effort after comeback at Wembley

England Manager Roy Hodgson praised his players’ commitment and invention after Frank Lampard’s late penalty earned the Three Lions a World Cup qualifying point against Ukraine.

After Jermain Defoe’s sizzling first-half strike was harshly ruled out, Yevhen Konoplyanka gave Ukraine the lead with a superb curling effort from 25 yards out on Sunday NFL Betting Odds

The hosts continued to work hard in search of an equaliser, and they were rewarded three minutes from time when Lampard emphatically thumped home from the spot after substitute Danny Welbeck’s shot was handled inside the box.

Hodgson said: “In general terms we went a goal down to a wonder goal, but I was pleased with the way we kept probing and trying.

“We kept trying to play our way through, and kept creating chances throughout the game.

All credit to Ukraine they played well enough and it was a good game of football.

“Had we lost the game it would’ve been very harsh on us – we certainly deserved the draw.”
