Beckham Commends Hodgson

Former England international David Beckham believes Roy Hodgson is doing a good job with the national squad and has commended the manger for his mix of youth and experience in the squad.

“There's a transitional period that was always going to happen. You see it throughout sport, you see it throughout teams and countries and obviously Roy Hodgson has come in and done a good job,” said Beckham.

“There's a lot of young players in the team and we've still got those players that they can look up to like Frank Lampard, like Stevie G (Steven Gerrard). There's players in there that have been in there for many, many years who have experienced World Cups and big games.

“So they have got those players that have got the experience in there, but young players will only learn when they're playing and that's what Roy has done. He's brought in a couple of young players that are the future of English football.

“I think people like to see winners and see teams and the country you support and live in be the best.

“That's why we are a country of believers and there are high expectations in our country.

“Whenever we go into a competition, whether it be football, whether it be any other sport, there's always high expectations and that's rightly so, because we're a country that's passionate about our sport and we're believers and that should never change.”
