SAM: IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN ME!
SAM ALLARDYCE admits he will be thinking, “That should have been me” when England kick off their World Cup campaign.
Allardyce (left) got England’s qualifying campaign off to a winning start with a 1-0 win over Slovakia in September 2016.
But that proved to be his only game in charge as he lost his job after just 67 days over a newspaper sting.
Gareth Southgate took over as boss and has led England to Russia. Allardyce said: “Of course I do think that should be me.
“I don’t think there is any doubt about that, but that is one of those things I couldn’t control in the end. I think that now I am over that. It’s gone, it’s passed and I wish Gareth all the best.”
