Roy Hodgson will reflect on the great Sir Alex Ferguson

Roy Hodgson will reflect on the great Sir Alex Ferguson

Hodgson has guided the national side to within sight of World Cup 2014 with some solid displays since he took over the reins from Fabio Capello almost exactly a year ago.

The improvement was rubber-stamped by a 2-1 friendly victory over Brazil at Wembley at the beginning of February, and Hodgson will be opening up over the development of the side along with his hopes and dreams for the future.

Joleon Lescott has featured several times in the qualifying campaign, and he'll be offering a player's perspective of the international set-up as well as lifting the lid on Manchester City's failed defence of their Premier League title and reflecting on Saturday's FA Cup Final at Wembley.

There's also the huge matter of Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement to address and Hodgson will no doubt be paying particularly strong tributes to the legendary boss, who is retiring after 26 years and 38 trophies at Old Trafford.

Both Hodgson and Lescott have pitted their wits against Ferguson on numerous occasions and are therefore well placed to assess what made the wily Scot so successful. In addition, the appointment of David Moyes as his successor will be addressed.

Ben Shephard and Chris Kamara will also have their say, so join the gang on Sunday morning.

So don't miss Goals on Sunday: 11am, Friday, Sky Sports 1 HD

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
