England boss Sam Allardyce lost his job after just 67 days in charge. Undercover reporters posed as businessmen and engaged in talks with Allardyce, who offered them advice on how to elude player transfers regulations. The English Football Association and the manager reached an agreement on Tuesday to terminate his contract. Allardyce took the England job after Euro 2016 as former boss Roy Hodgson resigned after his team suffered a surprise defeat against Iceland.
"Unfortunately it was an error of judgement on my behalf," Allardyce said. "I've paid the consequences. Entrapment has won on this occasion and I have to accept that." The Football Association issued a statement in which they described the manager's conduct as "inappropriate". The statement added: "this is not a decision that was taken lightly but The FA's priority is to protect the wider interests of the game and maintain the highest standards of conduct in football."
The FA have not released any indication of what type of manager they will be looking to hire next. England Under-21s manager Gareth Southgate could be considered for the job, even though last summer he was not among the candidates for the role. The FA did contemplate the possibility of hiring Southgate on an interim basis but eventually chose to sign a permanent contract with Allardyce. Southgate is the favourite for the job according to the bookmakers, he is 11/8 at Bet365 to become the next England manager, while Steve Bruce is 11/4 to get the job. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is 8/1 to become the next England manager.

Strange things happening really, I thought Allardyce could be a more successful as England manager than his predecessors but obviously it's not going to happen.
It's another ridiculous story around England national side and no doubtfully Big Sam is guilty but those reporters should find a better occupations for them selves instead of hurting this already struggling team.
