Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce
Since Roy Hodgson was dispensed with after England's Euro 2016 shame, speculation has been rife that Allardyce will be appointed his successor.

And that may well mean the Liverpudlian finally gets the England call-up he is long overdue having been a favourite of Allardyce's since he brought the left-back in from Ipswich Town in 2014.
“I’ve a lot to credit him for,” Cresswell told The Guardian.
“He brought me to the club and I can’t speak any more highly of the year I worked under him. He was fantastic with me personally and, if you ask any of the other boys, they’ll say the same thing.
"His man-management skills were very good, top drawer, so I think, if he does get the job, he’ll do very well. It’s a good fit for England and we’ll see if he gets it."
Although Hull City manager Steve Bruce, a close friend of Big Sam, has also been interviewed for the Three Lions job, Allardyce is still the favourite.

And Cresswell won't be the only Hammer Allardyce could look to in a shake-up of the national side.
Mark Noble would also be a good bet to earn his first cap, Andy Carroll is a Big Sam favourite and youngsters such as Reece Burke and Reece Oxford will also be on his radar from his time in East London.
