Southgate on verge of becoming permanent England manager

Gareth Southgate is in “pole position” to become the next permanent England manager, according to captain Wayne Rooney – but will the interim boss be handed the reins full-time?

A 3-0 win over Scotland on Friday night, following last month’s victory over Malta and draw in Slovenia, appear to have boosted Southgate’s chances of securing the role long-term but the FA have made clear they plan to take their time to make the decision.
