Roy Hodgson favourite for England job

1:46 pm on 30 April 2012

Roy Hodgson has become the favourite for the vacant England manager's position with the Football Association confirming they made an official approach to speak to the West Bromwich Albion boss.

The Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp had long been regarded as favourite for a role left open when Fabio Capello resigned in February in protest at the FA's decision to strip John Terry of the England captaincy.

But in a stunning development, the FA have turned to Hodgson who has a wealth of international experience having coached the likes Switzerland and Finland.
