Get the excuses in early! England boss Roy Hodgson says World Cup will be difficult for European teams

Roy Hodgson underwent an official tour of England’s first host city at the 2014 World Cup on Monday.

The England manager grabbed a first look at Arena Amazonia in Manaus where The Three Lions will face Italy in their first match of World Cup 2014.

Like many an English England manager, Hodgson does not look overly comfortable in hot climates and he was sweating as he admitted it would be difficult for any European team in Brazil this summer.

In a supplementary video, Hodgson contended that “England will be well prepared.”
