England sank to their lowest point for several weeks as a Telegraph sting operation saw Sam Allardyce sacked as manager.

The condiment enthusiast, 61, leaves with a 100 per cent record having won one, drew none and lost none as England manager.

Allardyce’s admission of corruption comes as a shock to those who believed him before when he swore blind he wasn’t corrupt.

He will now make way for erstwhile Pizza Hut star Gareth Southgate as the Three Lions attempt to bounce back again.

This kerfuffle marks the national side’s lowest point since they were knocked out of Euro 2016 by Iceland in late June.

And it could be made even worse by some unspecified future event the nature of which is not yet known.

Speaking exclusively to Football Burp, Harry Redknapp offered his services as interim manager.

He said: “It doesn’t matter if the caretaker’s crooked, does it?

“I’m just asking for a friend.”
