Player Row - Storm In A Teacup

Roy Hodgson has described the row between Ben Foster and Peter Odemwingie near the end of the game as a storm in a teacup, and just proof both players care.

Speaking to wba.co.uk after the game Hodgson said Foster was simply reminding Odemwingie of his allocated job for corners, and with the frustration of the result it just looks worse than it is...it's certainly not an indication of rising tensions in the dressing room.

'To be fair, Peter needs to question himself. He wasn't doing the job he was told to do. We knew about the short corners and we made it clear that we wanted him to go out and take the player who was looking to receive the short corner. He didn't do it and he didn't like the fact he was told about it.'

As ever with Hodgson though, it's not a blame game.

'Of course, in his defence, he worked very hard in the game. It's an emotional game, we were staring at a defeat and sometimes people react in those situations. It's a storm in a teacup and hasn't had any repercussions in the dressing room at all.'

Nothing wrong with players wearing their hearts on their sleeves, and nothing wrong with players insisting others continue to do their jobs even when tired.
