Roy Hodgson has been asked by the English Football Association to remain in charge of the national team until 2016 as planned despite a disappointing World Cup campaign.
England has opened the tournament in Brazil with losses to Italy and Uruguay, leaving Hodgson relying on two Italy wins and his own team beating Costa Rica on Tuesday to advance from Group D.
At Hodgson’s first tournament as coach, England reached the quarterfinals at the 2012 European Championship, and the FA wants him to see out contract until after Euro 2016.
“We’re supportive of Roy Hodgson. We’ve asked him to stay as manager,” FA chairman Greg Dyke said Friday.
“We do not see any value in changing. We think Roy has done a good job and it is an approach over four years and we hope to do better in the European Championships.”
