The English national football team went from consistently reaching the quarter-finals of the FIFA World Cup and actually winning the worldwide competition on 1966 to struggling on making it past the round of 16 and their latest edition saw them failing to even progressing any further than the group stages.

Following the dismissal of Roy Hodgson as the coach of England, Allardyce took over as the manager but there isn’t a general consensus as to whether or not he will be able to actually pull it off and rescue England from their drought of titles and success.

West Ham vice-chairman Karen Brady has revealed that the club’s former manager Sam Allardyce always wanted to manage the England national team. Hence, she expects Allardyce to do well in his new role.

Southampton defender Ryan Bertrand says that England can certainly go into the Euro 2016 with the belief that they can win the title.

England will certainly not be considered as favourites to win the title after having not come anywhere close to winning a major honours since the World Cup 1966. Even at the last World Cup in Brazil, the team was knocked out of the group stages after once again performing in a very poor fashion.

England boss Roy Hodgson says that Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy did not deserve to be sent off from the 2-2 draw with West Ham.

Vardy has been one of the sensational stories of the 2015-16 Premier League campaign. He has gone from being a nonleague player into a potential forward for the England national team at the Euro 2016 in the space of five years. He has been a major factor in Leicester City being very close to a league title. However, his suspension for the final few matches of the season could prove devastating for the underdogs.

Nobody thought it was possible, but Leicester’s remarkable surge from relegation survivors to champions in the space of a year may suggest that there is a wind of change in the Premier League.

Claudio Ranieiri took over a team that were a mere 5000/1 with to win the title, and while many were surprised that Leicester had turned to a manager who had endured a short, ill-fated stint in charge of Greece, the Italian managed to transform them into deserving league winners.
