Roy Hodgson defiant over approach

Belgium forward Romelu Lukaku insists too much pressure was put on England's shoulders to succeed after Roy Hodgson's men were sent crashing out at the group stage for the first time since 1958.

England head coach Roy Hodgson says he has no regrets about the way he approached the World Cup, despite his team being eliminated after just two games.

Costa Rica's win against Italy on Friday confirmed that England would exit a World Cup at the group stage for the first time since 1958, but Hodgson tried to find some positives in a desperately disappointing campaign.

"Results colour everything," he said. "We've worked so hard, done so much preparation for this tournament. We think we came here well-prepared, but we've failed.

"We obviously had really big hopes we were going to make the nation proud by going far in the tournament. We haven't done that, so any words on any other subjects are pretty empty at the moment.

"To make an impact you've got to win games, and we've lost both our games. I'm proud of the way they've approached it and everything they put into it. I'm just devastated they got nothing out of it. I'm very low and so are the players."

Roy Hodgson will continue to lead the England squad after their failure in Brazil.

FA chairman Greg Dyke has confirmed that Hodgson will hang on to his job for the European Championship qualifiers later this year.

The former Fulham and Liverpool manager was keen to highlight what he sees as the steps forward taken by England in the last few months.

When asked whether he made a mistake by including so many young players in his squad, Hodgson said: "I absolutely believe it was the right way to do it with these players.

"I believe the team going forward will be a very good team. I think there are good young players. The team is evolving. It will evolve, of course. I don't think there's any need to doubt that this England group of players will go on to do good things in the time ahead."

Hodgson defended his tactics when asked whether his side's attack-minded approach had been to blame for their demise.

"To say we got caught between two approaches would be a very harsh judgment on what we've seen in 180 minutes," he added. "You can make any of those things work for you if you want to. But you won't convince me that that's been the case.

"We've had an approach. The approach has not wavered, but we've conceded four goals and scored two. It's not much more complicated than that."
