The ESPN FC crew discuss former Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce being hired as the new England manager.

Sam Allardyce's first England match will be against Slovakia on Sept. 4. Who might be getting worried about their place and who should be hopeful of a call-up?

Five to go?

Wayne Rooney

In his inaugural news conference, Allardyce straight-batted the question of whether Wayne Rooney would be captain and later, speaking to newspaper journalists, made it clear that England's all-time scorer would have to fight for his place.

Sam Allardyce supremely confident as England turn to his pragmatic skills

The ESPN FC crew discuss former Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce being hired as the new England manager.

There's a theory that suggests anyone who wants to be a world leader should be immediately disqualified from doing so, on the basis that the sheer hubris involved in thinking you can cope with such a gargantuan task, makes you immediately unsuitable.

Given the way it has chewed up and made punchlines of men like Fabio Capello, you could think the same about the England job.

"It drives them all mad in the end," wrote the journalist Patrick Collins at one point. But if nothing else, Sam Allardyce...

Sam Allardyce gets his chance with England, who need his prosaic style

Alison Bender looks at the stats of new England boss, Sam Allardyce, and examines what he can bring to the squad.

Sam Allardyce thought his chance had gone. A decade on from failing to become England manager, losing out to Steve McClaren at the interview stage, the dream job is his.

"The longer I thought about it, the more I felt I should get it," he wrote in his autobiography of the disappointment he felt in May 2006. In July 2016, he's become the best man for the job in the view of the English Football Association. In the wake of Roy Hodgson's resignation on June 27 -- minutes after England had shamefully...
