England manager Roy Hodgson has reacted angrily to criticism of his side following their tepid 1-0 victory over Norway at Wembley this week, report the Telegraph, describing the use of the statistic that his side had only two shots on target in the match as “f*cking b*ll*cks.”

Hodgson was not happy with a line of questioning from the media that focused on his side’s seeming shot-shy nature, instead imploring reporters to focus on the few positives that came out of a fairly uneventful victory over a Norwegian side ranked 52nd in the world and looking to rebuild after a barren period of their own.

In truth, England were fortunate to win the game and should’ve been behind when Josh King raced clear on goal after a poor Gary Cahill backpass, only to mistime his square pass to Mats Daehli for a simple tap in.

The Three Lions took advantage to win the game when Raheem Sterling, man of the match by quite some distance, was brought down after racing into the box, but captain Wayne Rooney’s performance was also a concern despite the Manchester United star stepping up to slam home the winning goal.

For Hodgson to snap in this manner is a surprise, however, with the former Fulham and Liverpool manager having largely enjoyed a sound relationship with the media, at least before this summer’s disappointing World Cup performance.
