Neville delight at England role

Neville was handed the post by new coach Roy Hodgson, who is currently putting together his Euro 2012 squad.

The former right back told the FA website: “Roy asking me to be a part of his staff and to work with the national team is not only an honour but a very special moment for me.

“I had absolutely no hesitation in accepting this role and I am relishing the opportunity to work alongside Roy and the team at the Euros and through to the next two tournaments.”
