England to play without fear at World Cup - Hodgson

England manager Roy Hodgson has insisted that his side will not play with any fear during this summer’s World Cup, or employ ultra-defensive tactics, BBC Sport has reported.

In December, England were handed a difficult looking group when the draw was made. Games against Italy, Uruguay and Costa Rica lie ahead with the Three Lions not among the favourites to lift the trophy on July 13.


In the past, Hodgson has received criticism for his tactics as England boss, with some observers believing them to be too negative, with a lack of creativity and quality passing in attacking areas.


However, the 66-year-old has revealed that he will set out to attack his side’s opponents in Group D. He said: "We will be brave, we will believe in ourselves and we will risk defeat. We have to allow our players to express themselves in the same way they do in the top Premier League teams.


We won't try and sneak our way through the games because I think with the type of players we have that wouldn't suit us. I don't think you will see England sit back against Italy."
