Hodgson says Euros jackpot not on England players' minds

England coach Roy Hodgson says the jackpot due should they win the Euros isn't on their minds.

The Football Association have 20million reasons for wanting an England win, given that is what they will pocket should Steven Gerrard end up lifting the trophy on July 1.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, Hodgson is not interested in such matters.

"It's the last thing on the players' minds," he said.

"I have no idea what it's worth but it would mean a lot more to us as footballers if we win it, in terms of when we retire from football many years hence, to see a medal hanging round our necks."
