Sam Allardyce interviewed for England job

Sam Allardyce was interviewed for the England job at the home of FA vice-chairman David Gill on Tuesday.

Allardyce flew back to the UK from Sunderland’s pre-season training camp in Austria, and met with Gill, FA technical director Dan Ashworth and chief executive Martin Glenn.

The 61-year-old left Sunderland in a tracksuit on Tuesday lunchtime and was later seen entering and leaving Gill’s Cheshire home via a chauffeur-driven Mercedes.

With the formal interview process now underway, the FA is reported to be keen on talking to Eddie Howe, Steve Bruce and US Soccer manager Jurgen Klinsmann, with Ashworth, Gill and Glenn expected to carry out more interviews in the next few days.
