England boss Roy Hodgson is "up there" with the likes of predecessor Sir Bobby Robson, according to Football Association chairman Greg Dyke.
Hodgson, 68, will be taking England to the Euro 2016 finals in France this summer and is also celebrating 40 years in management.
He has taken charge of four national sides and 16 teams in eight countries, including Liverpool and Inter Milan.
"His CV is quite remarkable," Dyke told The FA.com
"Roy is a great example to any aspiring coach that being open to new experiences and cultures can really develop you as a person.
"Forty years coaching at the level he has puts him up there with the great English coaches, much revered people like Sir Bobby Robson, Dave Sexton and Don Howe."
Robson was England manager between 1982 and 1990, and was in charge when England were beaten on penalties by West Germany in the World Cup semi-final in Italy in 1990.
