Hodgson, who has two years left on his contract, said following the Uruguay loss that he would not resign, and on Friday Dyke gave him his full backing.

"We're supportive of Roy Hodgson, we've asked him to stay as manager," Dyke told reporters.

When asked by Sky Sports News if he felt Hodgson would remain in his job until the end of his contract at the 2016 European Championship, Dyke added: "That is the view of myself, of everybody else here [in Brazil] and of others in the FA."

Hodgson had earlier insisted he had no intention of stepping down despite feeling upset about the turn of events that have left his role being questioned.

He said: "I don't have any intention to resign. I've been really happy with the way the players have responded to the work we've tried to do.

"I'm bitterly disappointed, of course, but I don't feel I need to resign. On the other hand, if the FA think I'm not the right man to do the job that will be their decision, not mine."
