It is common knowledge that the FA are on the lookout for a permanent replacement of former manager Sam Allardyce.
Following the sacking of Allardyce, the FA handed the duties of the senior squad to U21 coach Gareth Southgate on an interim basis. Southgate is expected to stay in charge of the senior squad until the next international break in November.
Following the international break in November, the Three Lions won’t be in action until March and the FA aims to appoint a new manager before then.
Several names have been linked with the job, and the latest one is that of former Manchester City and Inter Milan manager Roberto Mancini.
Mancini was in audience at Wembley Stadium for the England’s 2-0 win over Malta last night, and Sky Sports journalist Guglielmo Cannavale has claimed that the Italian is one of the candidates in talks with the FA for the job.

Mancini, who quit his post at Inter Milan in the summer, is without a job at the moment.
