Hodgson’s England contract ends post-Euro 2016, but he has hinted that he could call on some young Lions before that.

As well as Crystal Palace’s Wilfried Zaha, Liverpool full back Andre Wisdom and Manchester United’s Nick Powell, Hodgson praised Chelsea’s Josh McEachran and Blackpool’s Tom Ince.

He said: “I was looking at the Under-21 squad that Stuart Pearce has picked and there are some very interesting young players in there, people like Andre Wisdom, Josh McEachran, Nick Powell, Tom Ince and Wilfred Zaha.

“They are all playing regularly in their club teams and have the right sort of characteristics.”
