Roy Hodgson has said he is determined to fulfil his four-year contract as England manager.

Hodgson was appointed as England boss in 2012 and agreed a deal with the FA that ties him to the role until 2016.

The 66-year-old is currently planning for this summer's World Cup where a poor showing could see his future called into question - but Hodgson is hopeful of still being at the helm at Euro 2016 in France.

"I signed a four-year contract and I've always been working myself towards that four-year contract," Hodgson is quoted by the Express as saying.

"Whether contracts mean four years when you sign them or not, that's not anything to do with me. That would be other people's decisions.

"I shall be working hard to fulfil the contract and hope that the FA will fulfil their side of it. And another one after that? Who knows?"
