Hodgson Calls Time as England Manager


After failing to progress from the Group Stage at this summer’s World Cup, England manager Roy Hodgson has resigned with immediate effect from his position after 25 months in charge.

Despite being favourites in their group, and an opening 5-0 win over Senegal, England were beaten by two late Switzerland goals in a 1-2 defeat. Going into their final group game against USA, England knew a draw would see them through. Four minutes into stoppage time, they went from second to fourth in the group when Eddie Gaven scored his first international goal to knock England out.

Roberto Di Matteo, without a job in football since being sacked by Chelsea in January 2013, is favourite for the position according to bookies this afternoon.
