Hodgson Won't Put His Arm Around Hart
Roy Hodgson insists he has no need to put his arm around Joe Hart and tell him how to prepare for the Germany game.
Roy Hodgson: "I always try hard to tell players things they haven't heard of, I don't teach them to suck eggs.
"Joe Hart is an experienced goalkeeper.
"He understands the way of the world. He understands when he loses his place in the Man City team and is criticised for letting a couple in, what happened will happen.
"I don't need to take him to one side and say: 'By the way, Joe, this is what happens in football'. I have too much respect for him as a professional and a man.
"Tuesday is a tough mental test, a test of attitude and application but I fully believe that Joe understands that and is ready for it."
