Hodgson has decided on his England World Cup squad

21 November 2013, 13:41

London - England manager Roy Hodgson says he is settled on his likely squad for next summer's World Cup Finals.

Hodgson and England came under fire after back-to-back Wembley defeats -the first in 36 years to Chile on Friday and Germany on Tuesday.

But Hodgson said he is confident in the players he already has, as well as looking forward to the return of others from injury, including Theo Walcott, Danny Welbeck and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

"I don't expect in the coming months to be watching games and suddenly find players I have never really thought of jump out at me and prove to be a lot better," Hodgson said after the 1-0 defeat by Germany.

"We are going to have to work very hard with the ones we have had with us here and add six or seven who weren't available on this occasion and hope that between that 30 or so players we can produce a team that can give a good account of themselves at the World Cup," he said.

"There is work for us to do. We know that. There were a lot of players out there (against Germany) who we all know are very, very good quality players.

"And there are very, very good quality players who took no part in either of the two games."

England have one more friendly before the World Cup, against Denmark on March 5.
