England manager Sam Allardyce believes he is now the right man in the right job at the right time.
James Yorke sizes up the on-field impact of England's appointment of Sam Allardyce as manager, and whether his pragmatic approach will pay dividends.
"I am extremely honoured to be appointed England manager especially as it is no secret that this is the role I have always wanted," Allardyce said.
Sam Allardyce has said that England are being held back by the Premier League ahead of his expected appointment this week.
"We must be proud of the past, but we will also adjust to the necessities of the new era, looking to the future to take adaptations," Lopetegui said.
Spain have confirmed the appointment of Julen Lopetegui as Vicente del Bosque's successor.
