Roy Hodgson: preparing for World Cup qualifiers

Roy Hodgson: preparing for World Cup qualifiers

Football Association chairman Greg Dyke delivered a keynote speech on Tuesday in which he outlined his fears for the national side unless more English players are given a chance in the Premier League.

And Dyke also laid bare his targets for the England team - setting the twin aims of a semi-final appearance at the 2020 European Championships and victory in the Qatar World Cup two years later.

Hodgson's time in charge is likely to be over by then, but the England manager is sure to be asked for his opinion on Dyke's vision of the future when he faces the media ahead of Friday's 2014 qualifier against Moldova.

Just 32% of players starting in last season's Premier League were English-qualified, and just four Premier League squads have seen an increase in their English and home nations players over the past four years.

That will be of concern to Hodgson, who has more immediate worries as he prepares for the forthcoming Group H double-header against Moldova and Ukraine.

Wayne Rooney is among the missing regulars, and Liverpool's in-form striker Daniel Sturridge will need assessing after coming out of the weekend with a groin problem.

You can watch Roy Hodgson's press conference live on Sky Sports News, skysports.com and the Sky Sports iPad app from around 4.50pm.
