Bayer Leverkusen coach Hyypia set to join England staff

Bayer Leverkusen coach Sami Hyypia is set to join England training next week.

The Daily Mail says during the international break the former Liverpool defender will join up with the England camp to observe how Roy Hodgson works.

As part of completing his UEFA coaching badges Hyypia will shadow Hodgson from next Monday until the following Tuesday and be at both England's crucial qualifiers against Montenegro and Poland.

Hyypia knows Hodgson from his two-year spell in charge of the Finnish national team between 2005 and 2007.
