Switzerland (1992-1995)

Hodgson took his first international post after impressing in the country's domestic competition with Neuchatel Xamax. At their peak, FIFA ranked Hodgson's Switzerland number three in the world.

Hodgson returned to the global stage at the unlikely outpost of the UAE, where he took over responsibility for both the national and Olympic sides.
