Gareth Southgate has been appointed as England manager permanently by the Football Association on a four-year contract until the end of Euro 2020.

The former England Under-21 boss was promoted to the top job at the end of September after predecessor Sam Allardyce was removed from the position after being caught up in a newspaper sting relating to alleged corruption in football.

Southgate then went undefeated over four games in the Three Lions' dugout, earning two wins and two draws, including a 3-0 win over Scotland and 2-2 draw against Spain.

Despite being increasingly tipped for the main role, Southgate had refused to talk up or deny he likelihood of becoming England's next manager permanently, instead constantly affirming he was focused only on helping his squad.

His demeanour had impressed the powers that be in the FA selection panel, however, and, after convening over the weekend for a penultimate meeting, English football's ruling body made Southgate's appointment permanent on Wednesday.

The news means the 46-year-old will oversee England's World Cup 2018 and Euro 2020 campaigns, with the former Middlesbrough boss revealing his satisfaction at being appointed and outlining his plans for the future.

"I am extremely proud to be appointed England manager. However, I’m also conscious that getting the job is one thing, now I want to do the job successfully," he said in a statement on the FA's website.

"I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with the players over these past four games and I think there’s huge potential. I’m determined to give everything I have to give the country a team that they’re proud of and one that they’re going to enjoy watching play and develop.

"For me, the hard work starts now."

FA chief executive Martin Glenn expressed his faith that Southgate is the right man for the task, stating: "We are delighted to confirm Gareth as England manager. (goal.com)
