Roy Hodgson would have been hoping for an easier group and a better location when the World Cup draw was made.

England were the last team to go into Pot D, joining Uruguay, Italy and Costa Rica.

And look at his face when the draw was confirmed.

Greg Dyke, the FA chairman, was even more downbeat, making a throat slit gesture at the news, as if to signify the end of England's hopes:

Additionally, Group D also takes in matches in part in Manaus, deep in the Amazon. Hodgson had been on record saying he'd prefer not to play in that part of the country for weather reasons, even upsetting the Mayor of Manaus in the process, as per The Guardian.

No wonder that's how he reacted.
