Roy Hodgson will lead England to glory at the 2016 European Championships, according to Tim Sherwood.

The Aston Villa manager has also tipped midfielder Fabian Delph, who has won three caps, to be part of any success.

The 25-year-old is in Hodgson's squad for England's Euro 2016 qualifier against Lithuania on 27 March and friendly in Italy four days later.

"Roy will stumble across a team that will win the Euros. He will, I tell you. They will win it," said Sherwood.

The former Tottenham boss also revealed that he tried to buy Delph when he was in charge at White Hart Lane.

"I tried my best with Fabian, I really tried my best," added Sherwood. "I think there was a place for him there where he could have slotted in either side of [Ryan] Mason and [Nabil] Bentaleb. He'd cost too much money now, but he would have been a bargain then."
