    [​IMG]Hodgson: At Wembley press conference.

    ROY HODGSON has vowed to win over fans and players alike after being unveiled as England manager.

    The FA approached the West Brom boss on Sunday after making him their
    No1 target. And after holding talks with football chiefs at Wembley on Monday, Hodgson’s appointment was confirmed as he put pen-to-paper on a four-year contract — the equivalent of three major tournaments.
    Hodgson said: “I’m a very happy man to be given the chance to manage my country.
    “I’m looking forward to the task ahead. Everyone knows it’s not an easy one.
    “I know everyone in the country will get behind the team because it’s the team that counts.
    “While I do it, I will do my very best to prepare the team as well as possible for the tasks that lie ahead.
    “I’m grateful for the chance to be the manager of England and I look forward to it.”
