FA Chairman David Bernstein welcomed Roy Hodgson to Wembley Stadium as he signed a four-year contract to become the new England manager.
Bernstein said the West Bromwich Albion manager was the "stand-out candidate" for the position vacated by Fabio Capello earlier last year:
“We initially put together a list of names for consideration, and over a period of time we reduced that down to a shortlist. Roy emerged as the stand-out candidate."
The FA have appointed West Brom manager Roy Hodgson as the new manager of England. Squad members have been slow to voice their approval.
Roy Hodgson is the new manager of England, with a difficult task ahead. He has a lot to prove at Euro 2012 this summer.
The West Brom boss is a step closer to becoming the England manager after holding "positive" talks with the FA at Wembley.
