Roy Hodgson hopes England can bring a feel-good factor to the nation when they head to Brazil next summer.
The Three Lions boss has continually sung the praises of the England fans who have helped his side both at home and abroad.
During the last two games the atmosphere generated at Wembley Stadium has helped England over the line with victories against Montenegro and Poland to qualify for the World Cup.
And Hodgson says his team will do all they can to make the country proud.
"It will be fantastic and I’m sure our fans will have a wonderful time out there [in Brazil]," Hodgson said in an exclusive interview with TheFA.com.
"We’ll do our level best to give them something to feel proud about. Wherever we’ve gone, and we’ve had some fairly long journeys, all the fans who have gone out there have supported us brilliantly.
"At Wembley we’re in the throes at least of making it a place where it’s hard for teams to come and beat us.
"We certainly felt in the last two games the support was really palpable.
"Even with a lot of Poles there the other night, anxious to make an awful lot of noise, our fans stepped up and made certain that we weren’t dominated by the away support."
