READ: Hodgson's full resignation statement

28 June 2016, 15:18

Nicec-cStatement read out by Roy Hodgson as he announced his resignation as England manager following his side's 2-1 defeat to rank outsiders Iceland at Euro 2016 on Monday:

"I'm extremely disappointed of course about tonight's result and ultimately our exit from the competition. We haven't progressed as far as I thought we were capable of, and that's obviously not acceptable.

"I'm actually proud of the work my coaching staff and I have achieved over our time at the helm of England. The transition from the squad whose average age was 30 to now being the youngest in the tournament is both remarkable and exciting for the future of English football.

"I would have loved to stay on for another two years. However, I am pragmatic and I know we are in the results business. My contract was always up after the Euros, so now is the time for someone else to oversee the progress of this young, hungry and extremely talented group of players.

"They have been fantastic and have done everything that has been asked of them. When I arrived I was told players didn't turn up to play for their country or that they pulled out at the last minute.

"I have not seen any of that. These players love to play for their country and their commitment has been unquestioned.

"Ray (Lewington) and Gary (Neville) arrived with me as part of my coaching team and will leave with me. I'd like to thank them for their dedicated support and for the major part they've played in our team preparation.

"Finally I'd like to thank all the support start, players, the FA and of course the fans. It's been a fantastic journey, these four years, and it's one I'll look back on or remember with pride.

"Finally I'd like to thank the media for the support you've given me over the four years. I'm sorry it's had to end this way with another exit from the tournament.

"These things happen. All I can do is wish everybody all the very best and hope that you will still be able to see an England team in a final of a major tournament fairly soon. We've been unable to deliver. Thank you very much."
