Hodgson worried about fans' safety

Roy Hodgson has told the BBC he is worried about the safety of England fans at this year's World Cup.

Last year the Confederations Cup was marred by violent protests conducted by Brazilians who were angry at the amount of money their government is spending on the tournament.

While Hodgson is confident about the safety of his England squad, who will be based in Rio de Janeiro, he is slightly apprehensive about the possibility of supporters being harmed.

"As far as we [the team] are concerned we are going to have a lot of protection. It's more for the fans that this is a larger concern," the England manager said.

"But I have great faith in the government, the local organising committee and FIFA. I have to say that I don't want to suggest there is no reason for concern. Of course, there is.

"From my point of view I just have to be trusting in our security, the security of the Brazilian government and all the things that FIFA will do to make it secure for the fans and the players."
