Steve Bruce (left) was also in the England frame Whatever the country of origin, Glenn was keen to stress the importance of the England manager liaising with all age-groups in order to improve English football.For Ashworth, that is likely to mean buying into the notion of England DNA - the concept he launched in 2014 and was described at the time as the start point for the creation of a world-class approach of elite player development leading to winning England teams.Was anyone else involved?Lots of people. Glenn is believed to have taken the initiative in canvassing the views of a number of former England players in order to gain a better understanding of the reasons for Englands perceived under-performance in major tournaments.

Glenn says the FA are looking for a long-term England manager to replace Hodgson Who was on the shortlist?Jurgen Klinsmann was the focus of considerable speculation and quickly became the bookmakers favourite for the job. However, it soon emerged that two Englishmen had been interviewed for the role - Sunderland boss Sam Allardyce and Hulls Steve Bruce.Allardyce visited Gills Cheshire home and met with all three of the FA panel, while Hull confirmed earlier in the week that Bruce had held informal discussions over the job.What happens next?Sunderland and Hull both expressed a desire for the decision to be made quickly, with the former describing the speculation as extremely damaging and thus putting the FA under pressure to finalise their plans.
