Roy Hodgson Coach's England career in numbers

Roy Hodgson's four-year reign in charge of England came to an end on Monday, here we look at the numbers from his tenure.

  • Published:

England's Euro 2016 exit at the hands of Iceland brought about the end of Roy Hodgson's reign as national team manager after four years in charge.

Hodgson took over from Fabio Capello in May 2012 and led England at Euro 2012, the 2014 World Cup and the current European Championship.

His appointment came just ahead of the 2012 tournament and Hodgson had little time to have an impact on the squad, but they reached the last eight - only to be beaten on penalties by Italy.

In qualifying for the next two tournaments England showed sensational form, but on the big stage they froze with a group-stage exit in Brazil and a humiliating 2-1 defeat to Iceland in France.

Immediately after Monday's defeat Hodgson's resignation was announced, here we look back at some of the stats that sum up his tenure.
