Roy Hodgson has urged the Football Association board to look for qualities beyond current results when weighing up candidates to be the next England manager.

West Brom head coach Hodgson's name has been linked with the post this week after a series of fine victories, including last weekend's shock 1-0 success over Chelsea. Former FA chairman Lord Triesman has backed Hodgson, whose side visit Manchester United on Sunday, to succeed Fabio Capello.

But Hodgson hopes the four man FA board weigh up all the ingredients that will make a successful international manager and pay no attention to a few good or bad results. Hodgson said: "I think we are in a business when the person who happens to be in the ascendancy in a brief moment in time is going to be the name on everyone's lips."
