Hodgson has faith in England to qualify for World Cup

Roy Hodgson believes England will qualify for the 2014 World Cup following the home draw with Ukraine on Tuesday evening, the BBC has reported.



England needed a late Frank Lampard penalty to earn a 1-1 draw with the visitors, who led after a long-range Yevgeni Konoplianka effort in the first-half. Lampard converted his spot kick after a Ukraine defender, Yevgeni Khacheridi, blocked Danny Welbeck’s shot with his hand, giving the Chelsea midfielder the chance to score his second penalty in as many games and his 26th international goal on the occasion of his 93rd cap.


Hodgson also saw his side have a Jermain Defoe goal ruled out, while Tom Cleverley spurned a handful of chances and hit the post, all before the interval.


The England manager however insisted that he was sure his side would be present in Brazil in two years’ time. He said: “I was very pleased with many of the aspects of the play tonight. I leave Wembley a lot more confident that we have a group of players who will take this England team to Rio.


Hodgson added that while the result could be viewed as two points dropped, since England were the home side, the way the game transpired means a point is a decent return against a strong opposition.
