The English Football Association says it has been granted permission to speak with West Bromwich Albion manager Roy Hodgson about coaching the national team. The post has been vacant since Fabio Capello quit in February and the FA had been waiting until near the end of the season to make a move to replace him. While Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp had been considered the favorite to replace Capello, Hodgson is now being lined up to lead the team into the European Championship in June. FA chairman David Bernstein says Hodgson ''is the only manager we have approached and ... further conversations will now take place with Roy and my Club England colleagues.'' Hodgson has coached three national sides, including Switzerland.
