For England, they haven’t been this low since, well, that Euro 2016 defeat to Iceland but, then again, these are rather extraordinary times of terribleness.
England are now truly on the floor, the laughing stock of world football and ‘where do we go now?’ is the abiding question this morning.
Inevitably, throughout the dramas of Allardyce’s downfall yesterday, several names were banded around, none of which will strike fear into the footballing superpowers ahead of the World Cup in 2018.
Eddie Howe will be a good candidate in years to come but he is far too inexperienced at the moment.
The rest? A bunch of lower end Premier League or Championship bosses with Alan Pardew leading the pack…
England have to get it right this time around.
