According to Football Association chief Greg Dyke, England manager Roy Hodgson’s contract will be renewed if the team “do well” and “play well” at UEFA EURO 2016.

England head into Monday’s match with Slovakia knowing victory will secure them a last 16 place in France.

With Hodgson’s deal with the Three Lions expiring at the end of the tournament, the 68-year-old has expressed that he would like to remain in charge for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Dyke said: “Clearly if you get to semi-finals, that’s success.”

“If we’ve played well and unfortunately lost against a good team or on penalties (in the quarter-finals) then that’s a discussion that will go on.”

Dyke said that the FA had made it clear with Hodgson that a decision would not be mad until the end of the tournament.

Also, the 69-year-old, who will be leaving his post this month, believes England should aim to win the 2022 World Cup.

“2022 is a realistic objective – we have a very young side now – if we can hold the younger players together and bring in some others,” he added.
