FA Announces Hodgson Will Return On Day England Knocked Out Of World Cup

Roy_Hodgson_is_ConfusedYou have to admire the timing of the English FA which announced that manager Roy Hodgson would be staying on as national team manager, the same day that England were knocked out of the World Cup.

Costa Rica’s 1-0 win over Italy meant that for the first time since 1958 England have not advanced to out of the group stages, but that did not stop FA chairman Greg Dyke giving Hodgson a vote of confidence.

“We’re supportive of Roy Hodgson, we’ve asked him to stay as manager,” Dyke said on Friday.

“That is the view of myself, of everybody else here (in Brazil) and of others in The FA.”

He added: “We do not see any value in changing, we think Roy has done a good job and it is an approach over four years and we hope to do better in the European Championship.”

Hodgson had earlier insisted he had no intention of stepping down despite feeling upset about the turn of events that have left his role being questioned.

He said: “I don’t have any intention to resign. I’ve been really happy with the way the players have responded to the work we’ve tried to do.

“I’m bitterly disappointed, of course, but I don’t feel I need to resign. On the other hand, if the FA think I’m not the right man to do the job that will be their decision, not mine.”

It was always going to be difficult for England to get out of this group, but what disappointed fans was the step backwards against Uruguay. Against Italy, England were a lot better than they were two years against the Italians in the Euros. But the Uruguay performance was really poor as England;s weak defensive was ripped apart by Suarez, and the Liverpool central midfield partnership between Gerrard and Henderson was overrun.
