Roy Hodgson Has Best Record As England Manager Since 1872

Maybe it’s time that the British press should give England manager Roy Hodgson some credit? According to the latest data from the excellent website, Roy Hodgson now has the best record percentage out of all of the England managers since 1872, when the Football Association formed its first England team.

Hodgson has a record percentage of 77.27%, with England only losing one match under his charge when England drew Italy 0-0 in regular time at the Euro 2012 semi-final, but lost 4-2 on penalty kicks. Hodgson’s record narrowly beats that of former England manager Fabio Capello who, while he had a better win percentage, lost six matches compared to Hodgson who has only lost one but drawn eight of 22.

Here’s the complete graph of statistics from 1872 through to today:
