Johannesburg : Ahead of England’s Euro 2016 clash against underdogs Iceland, embattled manager Roy Hodgson has insisted that he would not beg for his job as the achievements in his four-year tenure speak for themselves.
The 68-year-old’s job came under scrutiny after England finished second behind Wales in Group B and failed to secure a place in the quarter-finals of the European Championship.
Although defeat in the next match could end Hodgson’s career as the England manager, the 68-year-old has made no secret of his desire to continue in the role.
Hodgson, however, said if the Football Association don’t want to extend his contract then he would not request for the same, Sport24 reported.
The England coach believes his team is showing great potential under him and that they would go on doing great things with him in the upcoming year.
After making a quarter-final exit at the hands of Italy at Euro 2012 and a thrashing group-stage departure at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, the upcoming match is likely to be Hodgson’s last chance to prove his mettle.
Knowing that the upcoming game would be his side’s last chance, the England manager called on his players to improve on their scoring chances.
England will face Iceland for a place in the quarter-finals at Allianz Riviera in Nice on Tuesday. (ANI)
