Crystal Palace coach Hodgson said in an interview with the podcast show The Italian Football: "Under the leadership of Southgate, England may win the World Cup."
Hodgson said in the interview: "In the past few years, we are getting better and better. More and more young talents continue to emerge. In 2012, we have a lot of players, and we think they will be outstanding. But because they were too young and didn't play in the first team, we couldn't use them."
"Since 2014, many young players have not only been able to participate in the Premier League, but they also have to participate in the competition week after week, participate in the Champions League games, accumulate experience, and they are more active than the 2012 players."
"This is not impossible work, but difficult work. In this work, both you and the players will receive close attention and a lot of pressure on your shoulders, because like Italy, England is also a big football country. ."
"But I don't mean to say that being the coach of England is very different from being the coach of Italy, Spain, Brazil or Uruguay."
"I think when England participated in the World Cup in 1966, they were not considered the best team in that tournament, but they won."
"There will be such a day, this will happen to England again, maybe it will happen soon. Because we are now training many good young players."
