Default England coach resigns (men's football)

England football coach Sam Allardyce for men has resigned, after only one match. He took over from Roy Hodgson, after the latter's poor performance at Euro 2016.

From the BBC link below;

"Sam Allardyce has left his post as England manager by mutual agreement with the Football Association after one match and 67 days in charge.

It follows a newspaper investigation claiming he offered advice on how to "get around" rules on player transfers.

Allardyce, 61, is also alleged to have used his role to negotiate a deal worth 400,000 to represent a Far East firm.

An FA statement said Allardyce's conduct "was inappropriate" and Gareth Southgate will take temporary charge.

"He accepts he made a significant error of judgement and has apologised," the FA said.
