Interim England boss Gareth Southgate has decided to call-up Jack Wilshere to his England squad for the World Cup qualifier against Scotland. The central midfielder has been on loan at Bournemouth from Arsenal.

According to the Daily Express, the English FA could leave it a year to appoint a new England boss with a view to appointing Gunners boss Arsene Wenger next summer as the Three Lions permanent boss.

A three man committee of Martin Glenn, Dan Ashworth and David Gill are likely to be the men who choose the next England boss.

They are expected to appoint a caretaker-manager in the wake of Roy Hodgson’s recent resignation following England’s disastrous Euro 2016 exit against Iceland in the last-16. The Three Lions face their qualifier against Slovakia in September.
