Roy Hodgson eyeing up World Cup success with England

Roy HodgsonRoy Hodgson has revealed that leading England to the World Cup was the proudest moment of his 37-year managerial career. The 66-year-old successfully steered The Three lions through a tricky qualification group after they piped Ukraine to the post following a 2-0 victory against Poland at Wembley.

In the last five days England played with the type of attacking fluency and aggression that supporters have been craving for years. However, as expected, there were a few nervy moments towards the end up until captain Steven Gerrard hit home the decisive second. Andros Townsend once again thrilled on the wing and has proved to be a valuable and much needed asset in England's attacking play.

Hodgson headed into the final two crunch clashes under immense pressure but handled it admirably and will now look to make an impact in Brazil next summer. Attention has already turned to the World Cup Finals in seven months time, with Hodgson eager for his side to go far in South America. England can currently be backed at a best-priced 33/1 with Betfred to go all the way, while Wayne Rooney is the same price to win the Golden Boot.

England are scheduled to play two international friendlies in November - to mark the FA’s 150th anniversary - as they begin their warm-up to Brazil. The identity of those teams hasn't been announced yet but according to reports Germany and Argentina could be in the frame. Then, on December 6, England will discover who they will lock horns with in the group stage next summer, and they may face a tricky path through as it is unlikely that they will be one of the top seeds due to their FIFA ranking.
