PJ Roberts and Jason Dasey assess the latest candidates for England U21 side, including ex-Guam manager Gary White.

He was once coached Asia's smallest footballing nation, but is now in the running for a plum job in his homeland of England.

Wayne Rooney deserves more respect for Man United and England record

ESPN FC's Steve Nicol believes Wayne Rooney has fully earned his place as a legend with Man United.

As you may have heard, Wayne Rooney is now Manchester United's all-time joint-record goalscorer, alongside Sir Bobby Charlton.

His instinctive knee-flick to open the scoring in the 4-0 FA Cup third-round win against Reading on Saturday put him on 249 goals for the club. It's only a matter of time before he becomes United's outright record goalscorer.

Receiving the ball from deep, Vardy allowed it to drop over his shoulder before hitting an unstoppable right-foot strike into...

If only the Football Association had left it just a little bit longer. After 65 days as England caretaker manager, Gareth Southgate was confirmed as the country's third permanent boss of the year, succeeding Sam Allardyce, who was there for 67 days. The idea of someone being in temporary charge for longer than his permanent predecessor would have rather nicely encapsulated the chaos that leading the national team can bring.

The FA likes to give the impression there is a through-line of thinking...

Klopp holding tight on Sturridge

West Ham United are said to be desperate to add to their attacking options in the January transfer window, but they shouldn't expect any sympathy from Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp in their pursuit of Daniel Sturridge.
