Search finished for successor to Sven?

The Football Association have finished interviewing contenders for the England job but no decision has yet been made.

An announcement will not be made before next week as the FA's nominations panel have yet to decide on their favoured choice to succeed Sven-Goran Eriksson.

Once the panel have done so, they then need to have the decision ratified by the FA board, agree terms with the new manager and, if necessary, sort out compensation with a club. Such a process is likely to take several days.

Martin O'Neill and Steve McClaren continue to look by far the strongest of the candidates but it is understood that Alan Curbishley and Sam Allardyce also impressed when they were interviewed.

A senior FA source told PA Sport: 'All the people on the shortlist have now been interviewed and it is now a case for the nominations panel to determine the candidate they want - and they have not done so yet.

'All the candidates interviewed very, very well and as a result it means the panel have a lot to consider.'

Under the process laid out by FA chief executive Brian Barwick, the nominations panel - made up of Barwick, FA chairman Geoff Thompson, international committee chairman Noel White, Premier League chairman Dave Richards, Arsenal vice-chairman and FA board member David Dein and FA director of football development Sir Trevor Brooking - have to have their choice ratified by the board.

The next board meeting is on May 4 but an announcement should be made before that - once the nominations panel have come up with a name the board may be informed via a conference call.
