Former England manager Sam Allardyce must have wondered what might have been as he watched the Three Lions’ hammering of Panama in a London pub.
The 63-year-old lost his job as England boss after just one game of World Cup qualifying after a national newspaper sting.
Allardyce has since managed both Crystal Palace and Everton in the Premier League but is currently out of work and caught the game in a pub having worked at a William Hill event.
His replacement Gareth Southgate has been receiving plenty of plaudits as England followed up their narrow 2-1 victory over Tunisia with a 6-1 mauling of Panama on Sunday.
The two wins have guaranteed England a place in the last 16 and Allardyce was one of many to watch on from their local as Harry Kane led from the front by scoring a hat-trick in Nizhny Novgorod.
