Look what Costa Rica did: 3-5-1-1 (or 5-4-1), flooded the middle and forced Italy to play out wide where they're weaker. What does Hodgson do? Play 2 in the middle against 4 midfielders.
Hodgson was the wrong choice from the beginning and it was obvious. In truth, he's a dumb **** of a manager; totally outdated tactics for this era of football.
