Changes all around for England
Six years to rebuild
Hodgson also admitted that it could take a while for England to show dividends from the current crop of young talents they have on board. How long exactly?
"We just hope the next two, four to six years will bring some dividends."
Gerrard optimistic for youth
Skipper Steven Gerrard believes though the disappointment of the current World Cup will stay with the youngsters, it won't scar them. England's youngsters have "character" and "wants to stay at this level for a long time" he adds.
Smalling also optimistic

Roy Hodgson has also urged Gary Neville to continue on as a pundit and England coach, and not to jump straight into club management.
Hodgson happy if Lampard carry on
Midfielder Frank Lampard will be England's skipper for the night in what could be his last game, but Hodgson said he will be "more than happy" should Lampard continues with his England career.
Defoe insist he never avoid duty
Amidst Harry Redknapp's claim that several players did not want to play for England while he was in charge at White Hart Lane, Jermain Defoe insists he have always made himself available for national team duty.
