Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce has been named as England manager for the next 2 years.
He replaces Roy Hodgson at the helm after he resigned straight after England were knocked out of the EURO 16 by Iceland in the Round of 16.
Allardyce has managed English clubs such as Bolton Wanderers, Newcastle United, Blackburn Rovers, West Ham and Sunderland.
Allardyce said that managing England is a privilege and has been waiting a long time for this opportunity.
“It is going to be a great thrill for me to take the team forward, from the nation’s point of view, and hopefully make everybody proud of the England team again.” Said Allardyce.
He will pick his first England squad next month as the team has a friendly match at Wembley Stadium on September 1.
