England boss Roy Hodgson claims it is not "impossible" for the country to win the World Cup in Brazil in 2014.

Hodgson pointed to Chelsea's against-the-odds Champions League triumph last season, when they knocked out Barcelona and then beat Bayern Munich on penalties, as evidence that the fancied sides can be beaten.

He told Sportsweek on Radio Five Live: "You could say we are far from being favourites (for the World Cup) so therefore it's (winning it) not a likelihood. But you've got to shy away from 'impossible' in football."
