#bbcsportsday

Keith Hunter: Not quite sure what Roy was doing there. Could have sworn he resigned yesterday.

Aaron Vailes: Why is Roy Hodgson suggesting some matches just go that way. His role was to change that when it was happening! 

Laurie Ainsworth: "Roy should have left out "here today" and simply stated, " I really don't know what I'm doing." He has been totally clueless.  

Murray into second round

MR Amin: Martin Glenn twice said "I'm not a football expert..." in the conference. Wow! The future truly looks bleak.

Jimbo Wilson: Amazed that Roy didn't see fit to tell us what he said at half and full time! Surely we absolutely have a right to know.

David 'Billy' Gibson: Hats off to Roy for facing the music today! Shame overall.

Euro 2016

Outgoing England boss Roy Hodgson says the defeat by Iceland will have caused  "damage" to the players.

"I do understand that there will be fierce criticism of England for leaving the tournament at this early stage.

"One particularly bad game has caused a lot of damage to me personally, to the team and to the team going forward, because they've got a bridge to repair."

And with that Hodgson says thank you and goodbye.

Roy Hodgson news conference

Euro 2016

"I repeat I have no complaints about the press or the way I was treated.

"I leave you to your stories and I thank you for the time I had with you."

Roy Hodgson news conference

Euro 2016

Roy Hodgson is now summing up his thoughts on how the tournament played out:

"We weren't ruthless enough.

"I thought box-to-box there were some good signs that Martin can take forward with this England team

"We did not play well last night and I take full responsibility for that

"There has been lots of questions through the tournament and I have answered them and it's up to you if you like those answers or not."

'We are looking for the best person, not necessarily the best Englishman'

Euro 2016

On who takes over from Hodgson, Martin Glenn says: “We will be looking for the best person for the job.

“We are absolutely not ruling one out. 

“I am not here to talk about names today but I have been consistent with this, saying we will have the best people in the world to take this exciting group of players with high potential forward.

"We are looking for the best person, not necessarily the best Englishman."

Roy Hodgson news conference

Euro 2016

FA chief exec Martin Glenn:

"We're all part of the problem and part of the solution.

"I don't think anywhere in the world the scrutiny is so intense on the national team

"We have to take the resilience that is needed and see it as an important part of squad preparation.

'Players don't lack passion'

Euro 2016

Back to FA chief exec Martin Glenn:

"Roy has built a great team spirit amongst this group of players.

"When I went into the dressing room last night the scene was of devastation and personal grief.

"Let's scotch that one: it's not about a lack of passion amongst our players."

England job not impossible - Hodgson

Euro 2016

"It is a difficult job. It is not an impossible job.

"It is getting easier because there are more good young players coming through

"We showed signs of good football in the first three games which gave us confidence but last night we didn't reproduce.

"Players are more resiliant than coaches because they always have another training session to look forward to or another match

"They didn't play badly last night because they didn't care. They didn't play well last night because sometimes that happens."

Roy Hodgson news conference

Euro 2016

Martin Glenn is asked by BBC sports editor Dan Roan why he forced Roy Hodgson to attend this news conference. 

Hodgson then interjects to say: "I wasn't forced to come. I was anxious to make certain that no-one in this room can say I was worried to face the media.

"I did so because I have never shirked a press conference. 

"I maintained I am unhappy about it because it's no longer my job. Nothing I can say can do anything but fuel the flames. 

"I don't want to come here as Uriah Heep and I don't want to come here in a bolshie way either."

Roy Hodgson news conference

Euro 2016

FA chief executive Martin Glenn has said that the country is progressing despite the early exit from Euro 2016.

"The big re-investment is still quite new," he said.

"St George's Park is like a Premier League team opening an academy. It takes time.

"We are punching our weight in age-category tournaments and there are reasons to be cheerful because there is progress.

"We qualified extremely strongly and I think, in my view, the team has played better and more consistent football."

'These players will live up to expectations'

Euro 2016

"I am still a little bit unsure what I'm doing here," repeats a clearly present-under-duress Hodgson,

"I'm sure those players will live up to expectations and one day I'm sure we'll see England do well in a tournament, I'm hoping in 2018." 

“I think they have shown that they are worthy of wearing an England shirt and they have shown myself and my coaches that in this tournament.

“I don’t think it’s got anything to do with money or where they play.

“It’s 11 men against 11 men and sometimes the 11 men that you hope will be the better team aren’t the better team.

“I am that these players will live up to expectations and they will get better and better.

Roy Hodgson news conference

Euro 2016

Roy Hodgson is asked whether he owes the fans an apology.

"As a manger, I am responsible so it's not about transferring blame to the players," he says.

"We feel very sad we couldn't deliver what we wanted to deliver.

"Of course we are sorry we couldn't give the results we were hoping for. There is not much more I can say on the subject."

Roy Hodgson news conference

Euro 2016

Football Association chief executive Martin Glenn has said it is important that they take their time to analyse what went wrong for England at Euro 2016.

"I think the core question to try and answer is about the lack of performance at the business end of tournaments over a period of time," he said.

"People are looking for quick answers because we are feeling raw.

"I think we need to have a wide consultation. There is not one single thing that we can say 'if we fix that it will work'.

"We need to punch our weight in tournaments. We have not done that in 50 years."

Roy Hodgson news conference

Euro 2016

Hodgson is asked about claims that some England players lost faith in his tactical appriach at Euro 2016.

He says: "If it was true they disguised it very well from the players and coaching staff.

"The game you are talking about against Slovakia we dominated from start to finish. The only problem was our failure to take chances."

He's asked what he said in the dresisng room at half-time and full-time against Iceland.

"I don't think that's a matter for the public, what's said in the dressing room, stays in the dressing room."

I don't know what I'm doing here - Hodgson

Euro 2016

Roy Hodgson has said he was surprised that he has been expected to speak to the media.

"I don't know what I'm doing here because I thought my statement last night was sufficient," he said.

"I was told by everyone it was important I appear here because people are smarting from our defeat.

"I suppose someone has to stand and take the slings and arrows that come with it.

"I'm disappointed. I didn't see it coming. I had no indication that we were going to play that badly.

"I'm still recovering from what happened. It was not a good night for anybody.

"We go home as losers in the last 16 and retain that wretched record of not winning a knock-out game in the tournament."

Roy Hodgson news conference

Euro 2016

More from FA chief executive Martin Glenn who says the process to find a new England manager is under way and will be overseen by technical director Dan Ashworth, himself and FA board member David Gill.

They say they will be canvassing opinion from former managers, current managers and clubs.

He adds: "When we get to the business end of a tournament, England seem brittle and we need to understand why that is."

Roy Hodgson news conference

Euro 2016

FA chief executive Martin Glenn has spoken directly to Roy Hodgson.

He said: "Iceland is not your legacy or epitaph.

"Roy has shown tremendous integrity and is a man of great honour.

"The way he stepped down is the mark of the man."

Roy Hodgson news conference

Euro 2016

FA chief executive Martin Glenn speaks first with a "direct message" to the fans in England.

"It's a sorry - we know at the business ends of tournaments we have come up short," he says.

"Yes, Iceland were a doughty appointment but we didn't pull our weight."

Roy Hodgson news conference

Euro 2016

There's a packed room of journalists waiting for outgoing England manager Roy Hodgson to begin his news conference in Chantilly.

FA chief executive Martin Glenn will be speaking as well.

Can't imagine they'll have it easy.

"So, Roy, how does it feel to preside over England's biggest footballing embarrassment?"

Or something like that...

'Now is the time for someone else'

Roy Hodgson is due to speak at a news conference in France imminently.

He resigned last night after his side's 2-1 defeat by Iceland.

Just before he enters the room and holds court for the final time as England boss why not look back at the moment last night when he told the media he would be leaving.

'Worst performance I've ever seen from an England team'

Euro 2106: Alan Shearer and Rio Ferdinand to replace Roy Hodgson?

Former England captain Alan Shearer was dismayed by England's performance in last night's defeat by Iceland.

He said on Match of the Day: "That was the worst performance I've ever seen from an England team. Ever. It was tactically inept.

"We were out-fought, out-thought, out-battled and totally hopeless for 90 minutes. I said after the three group games that England weren't good enough.

"It looked to me like Roy was making it up as he was going along."

Wales defender Chris Gunter says a video of the team celebrating England's Euro 2016 defeat by Iceland, which was uploaded to social media, was not meant to appear "over the top".  

He added: "If you asked the squad as a whole, from a selfish point of view we are ever so proud to be the last home nation team left in the tournament."
