Roberto Di Matteo believes new England manager Roy Hodgson has "all of the experience you need for a national team".

Chelsea caretaker Di Matteo, who Hodgson succeeded at the Hawthorns, refused to take any credit for the 64-year-old's appointment by the Football Association.

Di Matteo, who had also backed Harry Redknapp's claim to the role, said: "The two candidates, I think, were Harry and Roy, and two very, very good candidates for the England job. Roy is a gentleman, is a very good coach, a very good manager. It'll be difficult for anybody but I think he's got all of the experience that you need for a national team."
