Hodgson calls for patience

Published Add your comment

England manager Roy Hodgson has pleaded for patience as the Three Lions take the first tentative steps towards being the team he expects them to be.

Although the reaction to Monday's draw with France was largely positive, a vast discrepancy in possession was noted and, against a significantly inferior Sweden outfit in Kiev on Friday, far more is expected.

But Hodgson hopes the realisation he is only three weeks and four games into his new role helps temper the demand for excellence, and he said: "One would hope people will be patient. I am satisfied with what I think we are achieving only three weeks into the job."
