Hodgson has Euro quarter-final aim

Published Add your comment

New England boss Roy Hodgson has set his team the minimum target of reaching the Euro 2012 quarter-finals this summer.

Hodgson was confirmed as Fabio Capello's successor on Tuesday, signing a four-year contract that will take him to the European Championships in France.

But events in Poland and Ukraine this summer are uppermost in his mind at present. Despite the drawback of having no chance to assess potential squad members in any depth until he selects his 23-man travelling party after the Premier League season ends, Hodgson is not going to use it as an excuse to lower expectations too far.
