Hodgson banks on St George's help

Published Add your comment

Roy Hodgson does not think the opening of the new National Football Centre will automatically lead England to World Cup glory in the future but is confident the work that will be done at Burton can improve their chances.

The aim of the £105 million St George's Park project, which was officially opened by the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on Tuesday, is to produce higher quality coaches and players to herald England as a larger force in world football.

France and Spain have invested in a similar nature at their respective bases in Clairefontaine and Madrid, which was key to their recent World Cup and European Championship triumphs. But Hodgson told Sky Sports News: "There's no way of knowing how much better one could have done with or without the facility."
