Roy Hodgson: The only man to have been interviewed for the England job

The FA made its move for the West Brom boss on Sunday evening, announcing that he was the only candidate under consideration.
The Football Association has called a press conference for 4pm on Tuesday, at which it is expected to unveil Roy Hodgson as the new England manager.
Initial shock at the decision to overlook the man considered to be the leading candidate for the role, Tottenham's Harry Redknapp, quickly subsided and Hodgson arrived at Wembley for talks on Monday.
Further discussions have been held on Tuesday, with the FA's four-man selection panel doing their utmost to ensure that they get the right man for the job.
England have been without a full-time coach since Fabio Capello handed in his resignation in February, with U21 coach Stuart Pearce having filled in on an interim basis.
It has always been the FA's intention to have a new man in place in time for Euro 2012, and it would appear that Hodgson will be charged with the task of leading the Three Lions' glory quest in Ukraine and Poland.
