Glen Johnson has hailed the ‘fantastic’ job done by new England boss Roy Hodgson and believes the future is bright despite the disappointment of exiting Euro 2012 via a penalty shoot-out against Italy. Good job: Glen Johnson (Picture: Getty Images) ‘What impact has Hodgson made? I think he has done fantastic and in such a short space of time,’ said the Liverpool full-back. ‘Things are looking bright for the future as long as we keep going the way we are. We can go into the World Cup qualifiers feeling confident. There are more positives than negatives.’ The 27-year-old has produced his best form in an England shirt under Hodgson, and said it was down to others to judge whether he was now the undisputed first choice. He added: ‘I played all the games in the World Cup, I played the majority of the games from then to now. I’ve played all the games here, so I’d have to be in contention, wouldn’t I? ‘Every player wants to have a run in any side they play in. No one wants to come in for one game then not play for a few months and come in for another. If you’re going to play, you want to play almost every possible opportunity.’ PICTURES: England team leave Poland
