England manager Roy Hodgson set to hold talks with the FAby Jack Kitson / 28 July 2015, 10:15Tweet
England manager Roy Hodgson is set to hold talks with the Football Association concerning his future with the national team. The 67-year-old, who has been in charge since May 2012, is in the process of leading The Three Lions through to next summer's European Championships, with his current contract expiring after the tournament.
England, who are unbeaten in 11 games, are in full control of qualifying Group E, having won each of their six matches so far, giving them a sizeable six point lead at the summit. Hodgson's troops are next in action in September away to minnows San Marino, who are rock bottom with just one point and no goals scored.
Last weekend England learnt who they will face in qualifying for the 2018 World Cup, with Wayne Rooney and co drawn against fierce rivals Scotland in a group which also features Slovakia, Slovenia, Malta and Lithuania. The neighbours will do battle in a competitive fixture for the first time this century, in what is sure to be a fiery fixture at Wembley in November 2016.
