Roy Hodgson will travel to Russia for the preliminary 2018 World Cup draw, amid reports he intends to win an extension as England manager.

The 67-year-old’s current contract expires after Euro 2016 but he is reported to covet a second chance at the World Cup following a disappointing campaign in Brazil last summer.

Hodgson’s decision to join the Football Association delegation in St Petersburg on July 25, when all confederations barring Asia will have their qualifying draws, could further fuel that speculation – but it is hardly unheard of for an outgoing coach to attend such official events.

Regardless of his intentions, the fact that Alex Horne’s replacement as FA chief executive has yet to be announced means any decision is virtually impossible in the short term.
