He is now likely to be replaced by David Beckham whose own footie career has shagged itself out under the tropical heat of LA skies.
Dodging reporters at the post-match pow-wow Hodgson played down news of the royal award.
A new career coaching wannabes in the All-England Ladies Lawnmower Racing trials beckons from September.
Sir Bobby Moore is rolling in his grave.
