Former Tottenham and Chelsea boss Glenn Hoddle feels England coach Roy Hodgson needs to change his tactics for their World Cup qualifying campaign.

England were eliminated in the quarter-final of Euro 2012 following a 4-2 penalty shootout loss to Italy on Sunday evening.

Hoddle told Sky Sports News."We've got to change our shape when we're in possession.

"When I was manager I used wing-backs and tried to change the shape of the team from 4-4-2 because I learnt from my own experiences as a player.

"Roy will sort out which way and which system he wants to play but we need to give ourselves a better opportunity to attack.

"Looking forward to the World Cup qualifiers, we've got to keep the ball a bit better but there were lots of positives (from Euro 2012).

"I think we've got to come up with a better system but I'm sure that will be worked over in the coming months."
