Roy Hodgson hired as new England national team coach
Roy Hodgson was hired Tuesday to coach England and end its 46-year title draught, with the Football Association hoping his international experience and home-grown heritage will be a perfect mix. Hodgson was given a four-year deal.
There will be no time for Hodgson to relax in his new Wembley office, having to pick a European Championship squad within two weeks. England then has two exhibitions before the first Euro 2012 match against France on June 11.
