Roy Hodgson

Statement from The Football Association:-

Like the nation, we are disappointed to lose this evening and that our run in Euro 2016 has come to a premature end.  We had high hopes of progressing through to the latter stages of the competition and accept that we have not met our own expectations or those of the country.

We back Roy Hodgson’s decision to step down as England manager and will discuss next steps imminently.  

For now, we congratulate Iceland for reaching the quarter final and wish them well against France at the weekend.

Finally, our sincere thanks go to the travelling fans for their incredible support tonight and to everyone back home for getting behind the team.
