The hangover from England's 1-0 victory (yes, victory) continues, as boss Roy Hodgson snapped back at critics after their uninspired display against Norway. 

Hodgson's squad fell under much criticism after they only mustered two shots on target at Wembley. It wasn't quite the performance supporters had hoped for to erase the memories of a woeful World Cup. 

He fired back at the criticism, calling it "f-----g b------s." The back pages had a field day with it in the aftermath. 

The Mirror dub the England boss as "Roy of the Ravers."
