Roy Hodgson enthusiastic about England team in transition ahead of World Cup in Brazil
Roy Hodgson believes England will come away from the 2014 World Cup having given a good account of themselves as the anticipation builds for the tournament in Brazil.
The England manager was speaking at the LMA President’s Dinner in London on Tuesday evening.
"I think everyone is excited by this tournament,” said the 66-year-old.
"I think everyone’s quite excited by the fact that this is an England team in transition at the moment and there are some very interesting players who could be involved.
"I think we will be very well supported, not only in Brazil but back here in England as well, wherever the games are being shown.
"So I’m sure the players will do their best and I’m very confident that we’ll come away from the tournament having given a good account of ourselves.”
England have been handed a tough group and face strong opposition in Uruguay, Italy and Costa Rica.
Although some have written off their chances of qualifying for the knock-out stages, Hodgson seems confident of achieving positive results in Brazil.
The positive talk by the England manager will certainly provide inspiration for his players and he’ll hope it helps galvanize the fans as well.
