Sunderland forward Jermain Defoe improve his chances of featuring in the England national team – at least for the next couple of years – after scoring an impressive goal against Manchester City on Saturday.


Even though the goal did not help Sunderland get anything out of the game, Defoe once again showed his class in front of a packed audience that included England manager Sam Allardyce. Allardyce is no stranger to Defoe after having been the man who brought the former Tottenham striker to the Stadium of Light. His return to the limelight came just at a time when Defoe quit English football for the MLS.

Roy Hodgson unsure on Wayne Rooney picking

Posted by content

Roy Hodgson claimed that he is undecided as to whether picking Wayne Rooney for the final group match against Slovakia.

After a late winner against Wales in the previous game, England are now in a good position to qualify from the group and enter into the knockout stages. Following a 1-1 draw with Russia in the opening game, there was a danger of England failing to get out of the group stages at a major tournament once again. There was a sea change in the attitude of the England attack towards the end of the game against Wales.

England and Russia have been given disqualification warning due to the violence from the fans of both teams.


There are terrorism concerns that the police should be attending to but they have been expending considerable time and effort on dealing with the unruly fans, according to the police chief.

Marcus Rashford is unlikely to be taken to the Euro 2016 with the England national team, according to manager Roy Hodgson.

There have been several calls for the Manchester United forward to be included in the squad. Since making his debut only in February, Rashford has already scored seven goals in just 13 appearances for United. Hodgson admitted that he has been left impressed with the striker but this alone is not sufficient to see him included in the squad for the Euro 2016. Hodgson’s decision is likely to be down to the plethora of options that he has in this position.

Hodgson doesn't want players too hyped up

Posted by isport

Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy and Harry Kane of Tottenham Hotspur are a few of the breakthrough stars of the Premier League of this season. Harry Kane has managed to score 19 league goals in 30 appearances while Jamie Vardy also scored 19 but in 31 matches.

Those players are one of the biggest reasons of why their respective clubs are performing so well in this season.

Roy Hodgson says that he expects to be the manager of England until the World Cup 2018. The former West Brom and Liverpool manager has been in charge of the team since the Euro 2012.

Even though results have not been exceptional, Hodgson has been praised for the way he has reduced the age of the national team. He came at a time when the national team was going through a period of decline due to ageing stars like Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard still dominating the team. Hodgson slowly but surely integrated young names into the team, who now form the basis.
