Roy Hodgson failed tactically and showed no invention

I found the game against Iceland very frustrating. Why he chose to go 4-3-3 completely changing the shape from the previous games I have no idea. Players didn’t seem to know their roles, we didn’t stretch the midfield and the attacking fallbacks didn’t overlap.

Hodgson changed the shape of the way we generally play and it didn’t suit the team. Why he doesn’t start with Vardy who is the best inform striker and he chose not to pick a single winger when English football is all about wing play.

So Roy Hodgson has just stepped down from his role. It’s time to change and freshen up the English coaching staff, someone younger who knows the game and won’t experiment in a major tournament.
