England failed to top their group after they were held to a goalless draw by Slovakia in their final Group B match in the ongoing Euro 2016 tournament.
England coach Hodgson made six changes, including resting captain Wayne Rooney, from the win against Wales, but the plan backfired as the Three Lions failed to find the net.
England had the better chances, with Slovakia keeper Matus Kozacik saving well when Jamie Vardy broke clear in the first half, as well as blocking crucially from Nathaniel Clyne after the break.
The result means England’s objective to win the competition becomes more difficult, as they will have to face either France, Germany or Italy on the way to lifting the trophy.
For Wales who comfortably beat Russia 3-0 to top the group, they only tough team that stands between them and the trophy is Spain.
