Roy Hodgson’s contract as England boss will be renewed if the team “do well” and “play well” at Euro 2016, says Football Association chief Greg Dyke.
England face Slovakia at 20:00 BST on Monday knowing victory will secure them a place in the last 16 in France.
Hodgson’s deal expires at the end of the tournament, and the 68-year-old has indicated he would like to remain in charge for the World Cup in 2018.
“Clearly if you get to semi-finals, that’s success,” Dyke told Sportsweek.
“If we’ve played well and unfortunately lost against a good team or on penalties [in the quarter-finals] then that’s a discussion that will go on.”
The 69-year-old said the FA had been clear with Hodgson a decision would not be made until the end of the tournament.
“2022 is a realistic objective – we have a very young side now – if we can hold the younger players together and bring in some others,” he added.
‘I suspect there are other Rashfords out there’
Dyke is concerned the increasingly “international” nature of the Premier League has led to a lack of home-grown players and managers.
He cited 18-year-old striker Marcus Rashford’s rise from Manchester United academy prospect to the England senior squad as an example.
“Rashford came from nowhere,” he said. “I suspect there are other Rashfords out there who never get a chance to play in the Premier League.”
