Roy Hodgson resigned as England manager on Monday night after a shock defeat to Iceland saw the Three Lions knocked out of Euro 2016 at the round of 16 stage.

The 68-year-old took charge of England at three major finals but could only win three of the 11 games he oversaw and here Press Association Sport takes a look at his tournament record and overall statistics from his 56 matches at the helm.

Euro 2012

England 1 France 1 - June 11, 2012, Donetsk

Hodgson's competitive bow as England boss began well enough as Joleon Lescott's first-ever international goal put his side ahead on the half-hour mark, with Group D rivals France taking a share of the spoils as Samir Nasri levelled just nine minutes later.

England 3 Sweden 2 - June 15, 2012, Kiev

Arguably Hodgson's best game during tournament football as Andy Carroll's header was cancelled out by a Glen Johnson own goal and an Olof Mellberg effort only for England to rally and take all three points as Theo Walcott and Danny Welbeck struck in the second half.

Ukraine 0 England 1 - June 19, 2012, Donetsk

Wayne Rooney's solitary strike was enough for a second straight victory and saw England top Group D ahead of France as Hodgson's Three Lions started to look like a side which could go deep into the competition.

England 0 Italy 0 (Italy win 4-2 on penalties) - June 24, 2012, Kiev

Hodgson had his first taste of penalty shoot-out heartbreak as England could not find a way past Italy in 120 minutes of football. Riccardo Montolivo missed for the Italians but Ashley Young hit the bar and Ashley Cole's effort was saved by Gianluigi Buffon before Alessandro Diamanti converted to send England home.

World Cup 2014

England 1 Italy 2 - June 14, 2014, Manaus

Another meeting with Cesare Prandelli's Italy kicked off a forgettable World Cup campaign as Claudio Marchisio and Mario Balotelli struck either side of Daniel Sturridge's equaliser to put England on the back foot.

England 1 Uruguay 2 - June 19, 2014, Sao Paulo

Different opponent, same outcome as former Liverpool striker Luis Suarez bagged a brace to confirm England's early exit - despite Rooney levelling with his first-ever goal at a World Cup - their first group stage elimination since 1958.

England 0 Costa Rica 0 - June 24, Belo Horizonte

Hodgson shuffled his pack for what had become a dead rubber for his side, the likes of Ben Foster, Luke Shaw, Ross Barkley and Adam Lallana given the chance to impress although the goalless draw meant England finished bottom of Group D with one point - their lowest in a World Cup.

Euro 2016

England 1 Russia 1 - June 11, Marseille

Having qualified for France with a 100 per cent record, England should have continued that run as they dominated against a poor Russian side but Eric Dier's well-struck free-kick was cancelled out as Vasily Berezutski headed home in the second minute of added time to equalise.

England 2 Wales 1 - June 16, Lens

England's time to hit back in the final moments came when they faced home nation rivals Wales, who took the lead through a long-range Gareth Bale free-kick just before half-time. Hodgson introduced Jamie Vardy and Sturridge at the interval and both found the net to turn the game in England's favour - Vardy levelling before Sturridge hit a 92nd-minute winner.

England 0 Slovakia 0 - June 20, Saint-Etienne

Hodgson's gamble to make six changes and keep his side fresh backfired as Slovakia's stubborn defensive line kept them at arm's length as England ended up finishing second in Group B behind Wales.

England 1 Iceland 2 - June 27, Nice

The end of the road for Hodgson came as they crashed out to rank outsiders Iceland despite Rooney having given England a fourth-minute lead from the penalty spot. Ragnar Sigurdsson levelled moments later before Kolbeinn Sigporsson's 18th-minute strike squeezed past Joe Hart - England failed to create enough chances to level and were denied a quarter-final against hosts France.
