England have announced Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce as their next manager on a two-year deal.

Allardyce replaces the outgoing Roy Hodgson and stated his eagerness to make England a force again following a disappointing Euro 2016.

"I am extremely honoured to be appointed England manager especially as it is no secret that this is the role I have always wanted. For me, it is absolutely the best job in English football." Allardyce said.

"I will do everything I can to help England do well and give our nation the success our fans deserve. Above all, we have to make the people and the whole country proud.

"While my main focus will be on the senior team and getting positive results, I want to add my influence to the great work being done across the development teams at St. George’s Park – a facility I have used with my previous clubs.

"I know we have talented, committed players and it is time for us to deliver."
