Amid all the hiatus, everyone’s favourite pundit has quietly gone about doing a brilliant job, providing astute and considered opinions on the happenings in South Africa. Unlike his colleagues, his sartorial choices have been largely neutral and his behaviour impeccable. Ignoring all the hype around whether he’ll be off to Liverpool or Wembley in a month or so, Roy Hodgson has been hard at work sharing his insights; the latest in the form of this Q&A on the Beeb’s website.

Cautious as ever, our Roy doesn’t give much away. When asked if there are any players who have caught his eye, he gently swerves the direct question giving a nice bland answer instead. So no clues about who’ll be getting the locker next to Senderos in August.
