Sam Allardyce: England a laughing stock - Alan Shearer

England are the "laughing stock of world football" following
manager Sam Allardyce's departure after only 67 days, says
former captain Alan Shearer.

It follows a newspaper investigation claiming Allardyce offered
advice on how to "get around" rules on transfers. "I'm angry, I'm sad, I'm staggered at the misjudgement from a guy who said this was his dream job," the ex-England striker told BBC Radio.
"It's incredible and a catastrophic misjudgement by Sam and
his advisers."

Allardyce replaced former manager Roy Hodgson after England
were knocked out of Euro 2016 at the last-16 stage by minnows Iceland.

Shearer, who scored 30 goals in 63 caps, said: "I'm angry at
the whole situation. I didn't think England could stoop any
lower from what happened in the summer at the Euros.
 Now here we are, a laughing stock of world football.

"It looks a poisoned chalice. All those managers that have left
for right or wrong reasons. It's a very, very difficult job -
some would say the impossible job."
