The Arsenal playmaker made his first-ever start for Hodgson in Wednesday night’s 2-1 win against Brazil at Wembley, turning in a man-of-the-match display in the process, and he had nothing but praise for the new man at the helm.
“It’s totally different from before,” the 21-year-old told the Evening Standard after the Brazil friendly.
“For one, the manager has changed and all the staff have changed, too, so it’s a totally different atmosphere. It’s a nice atmosphere.
“There are more English people around and we get on really well and are more relaxed.
“We have some good young players now and some with experience, so it’s important we have got a good blend and it worked well [against Brazil].
“I feel my form is getting better and better. I am never happy with where I am. I always try to improve and work hard in training.
“I always want to keep my performances up for my club and then whenever I get called up for England.
“It was a great night personally and for the team as well. The main thing was the team. We had to work hard together and this win was good for our confidence.”
