West Bromwich Albion boss Roy Hodgson believes England can win the World Cup.

Hodgson is impressed by the young talent currently coming through.

He said: “It looks like there are a lot of emerging young players in the English game.

“In the recent matches, I thought Ashley Young did well and Stewart Downing and Adam Johnson gave them something ­different because they can run with the ball.

“That’s something we have ­lamented not having in the past. We also have the speed of Theo Walcott and Aaron Lennon. It’s looking good that we have different players who can give the coach ­different options.

“As for Jack Wilshere, he’s a very, very talented all-round midfield player. He can ­tackle, shoot, pass.

There are certainly good signs for the future for the next manager, whoever he is. I’ve got a feeling the ­glittering prize is not that far off for the England team – so who knows? The next England manager might be the lucky one.”
