Roy Hodgson To Lead England U21 Team For One Game

Sean Raymond by Sean Raymond / 01 August 2013, 09:53

England Manager Roy Hodgson will take charge of the U21 team for the upcoming game against Scotland as the FA look for a successor to Stuart Pearce. The game will take place at Bramall Lane the night before the senior team take in Scotland at wembley. Hodgson will now step in for both games while the recruitment process for a permanent U21 Manager continues. A number of Managers have been linked with the Under 21 job since Stuart Pearce left his post but so far there has been no appointment.

Hodgson appears more than happy to take charge of the game with the chance to run the rule over the next generation of players like to be of great benefit. The focus of the week though for Hodgson will clearly be the senior game with the old enemy from north of the border heading to the National Stadium. International friendly matches before the start of the season are always unpopular with Managers but England have some crucial must win qualifiers on the horizon.

Hodgson will surely be looking to try out some combinations before the autumn matches with England's participation in the 2014 World Cup still hanging in the balance. Three wins in the Autumn will see England qualify for Brazil but their form has been indifferent at best meaning that the Scotland game will be crucial as they complete final prep for the qualifiers.

As for who will take over as the Under 21 Manager after the Scotland game, there are still a number of names being linked with the job. Michael Appleton is one name that continues to be well backed in the betting along with Gareth Southgate. The FA are clearly not rushing into a decision as they look to get the right man after the disastrous summer at youth level. Stuart Pearce did a good job for much of his reign but he fell on his sword after the under 21 team crashed out of the Euros without a win to their name.
