Zaha will play his last game for Crystal Palace tomorrow ahead of a summer move to Manchester, where he will look to take his game to the next level after United splashed £12m to sign him.
And Hodgson, who gave Zaha his first England cap against Sweden back in November, believes he will be able to make the step up:
“I like Wilfried Zaha, I think he is a good player.
“I went to Palace not so long back to have a look at him and of course he has a massive move to Manchester United. It seems to me he is on the threshold of something big.”
“He will be given the opportunity, when a club like Manchester United is prepared to pay a lot of money for a player because they will help them to win things it is a tremendous boost to both confidence and ego.
“As coaches we can’t do any more. After you have lit the touchpaper, all we can do is retire and hope they buzz.”
