The 'Bonkers' rapper tells Capital that he thinks too much emphasis has been placed on new manager Roy Hodgson.

Dizzee Rascal has opened up on his thoughts on England's chances in Euro 2012 and thinks the country has "as good a chance" as any team in the competition.

The appointment of new manager Roy Hodgson last month caused controversy amongst many and the 'Dance Wiv Me' star told Capitalfm.com that he questions wether the media should be focused on the manager.

"I think they've got as good a chance as anyone you know because this is Europe.," he confessed. "They say that every time when a manager comes but, I don't know. I'm to the point where I'm like 'is it really about the manager?' I don't know."

The national team will go up against Ukraine tonight (19th June) in the final group game of the competition.

The star teamed up with comedian and Tony Awards winner James Corden on the 2010 charity England song 'Shout' and is a keen follower of the sport.
