England fans overwhelmingly back Hodgson

England supporters are behind Three Lions boss Roy Hodgson.

The London Evening Standard says Hodgson has won huge public support to stay on as England manager despite the national team's shambolic World Cup performance, an exclusive poll reveals today.

Almost three-quarters of those polled said Hodgson should not be sacked, revealed pollsters Ipsos MORI, effectively endorsing the Football Association's decision to keep him on.

Only 12 per cent thought it should be all over for the 66-year-old after his inexperienced side became the first England team to be eliminated from the World Cup at the group stage since 1958. An overwhelming 73 per cent said he should stay on, giving Hodgson a 6-1 victory in the battle for public opinion.
