Croydon born veteran manager close to securing top job.
Roy Hodgson and England: Talks to start with the FA
Roy Hodgson is set to start talks with the Football Association on Monday and is expected to be appointed England manager within 48 hours.
The FA says the West Brom manager, 64, is the only person it has approached about succeeding Fabio Capello.
He has already spoken with FA chairman David Bernstein and will meet with the four-man panel.
He said he would “be delighted” to manage England, in a BBC Sport interview before the FA’s approach.
Hodgson has extensive international experience, having managed Switzerland, United Arab Emirates and Finland, and domestic teams in Sweden, Italy and England.

It would be fair to say that the vast majority of England football fans are not at all happy with the imminent appointment of Roy Hodgson as England boss and a fair few of them may also be fairly confused by the move to bring in the West Brom man as a long term successor to Fabio Capello.
Hodgson would appear to be a very popular man in the game and whilst the hugely experienced former Liverpool boss does not have all that many detractors in the game as a whole we are still talking about a manager who hasn’t secured any meaningful top level silverware in after a managerial career of over 35 years.
