WORLD CUP

GARETH South­gate says he wants to know within weeks whether he will be Eng­land’s next per­ma­nent man­ager. The for­mer Eng­land cen­tre-back was given the job on a care­taker ba­sis fol­low­ing the Foot­ball As­so­ci­a­tion’s dra­matic de­ci­sion to dis­pense with Sam Al­lardyce, fol­low­ing a onegame reign that was ended by con­tro­ver­sial com­ments made to un­der­cover re­porters.

South­gate has been in charge for Eng­land’s past three games, in­clud­ing Eng­land’s 3-0 win over old ri­vals Scot­land in a World Cup qual­i­fier at Wem­b­ley on Novem­ber 11, a laboured vic­tory over Malta and a goal­less draw away to Slove­nia.
