Pundits called England’s opening to the 2012 tournament steady but effective - glad to have not lost to a French side unbeaten in 21 games.

But what did our publicans make of Roy Hodgson’s first tournament performance as manager.

Assistant manager of the Mundy Arms in Marlpool Ash Hemsley, 36, said: “I all honesty I think we could have done a lot better - the score should have been at least 2-1 to us.”

But manager of the Heanor’s Red Lion pub John Moore was slightly more optimistic. He said: “It could have been a lot worse. If we come up against a better team than France we will struggle.”
