England boss Roy Hodgson isn't interested in the opinion of pundits over his tactical approach.
Hodgsonâ€™s Euro 2012 tactics have come in for criticism but he is Âadamant that he will not be bullied into ripping up what he believes are ÂEnglandâ€™s strengths.
And he will not be dazzled by buzzwords either.
â€śThe words vision and Âphilosophy frighten me Âbecause I had to go to the Âdictionary once to find out what the word philosophy meant, and Iâ€™ve forgotten again,â€ť said ÂHodgson.
â€śI donâ€™t want to emulate Âother nations. I want ÂEngland to be England. We have to maintain that degree of pragmatism that we have always had in English football. We also have to retain that fighting spirit and doggedness.
â€śWe mustnâ€™t start throwing those qualities over-board just so you can come off the field and have someone say youâ€™ve had more shots at goal. We will be working to keep whatâ€™s good about our game and to improve the things that Âobviously did not go right for us this time.â€ť
Hodgson added: â€śSometimes in football you have to be Ârealistic.â€ť
