CONTENDERS TO REPLACE SAM ALLARDYCE AT ENGLAND

ALAN PARDEW

Seemed to be a new man after swapping Newcastle for Crystal Palace and some fine early-season results saw him seriously linked with the England job for the first time in his career.

EDDIE HOWE

A smart, erudite and tactically-savvy coach who, at 38, looks to have a bright future at the top of the game. The manager has flourished at Bournemouth and only last week described coaching England as the "ultimate" job.

GARETH SOUTHGATE

Highly thought of by the decision-makers at the Football Association, the former Middlesbrough boss was brought into the fold to coach the Under-21s with an eye on future progression. Will take charge for England's next four matches against Malta, Slovenia, Scotland and Spain while the FA looks for a new permanent boss.

STEVE BRUCE

The former Manchester United defender was interviewed in the summer about the vacant England manager's job.

JURGEN KLINSMANN

The former Tottenham striker has managerial experience at international level, having been in charge of the United States for almost five years and Germany before that.

GARY NEVILLE

Seemed a heavy favourite to progress from his role as Hodgson's assistant until his ill-advised stint with Valencia saw his stock plummet. It may yet be decided that was a case of the wrong job but the right man.
