Gareth Southgate is England's new manager after his long-expected appointment was confirmed by the Football Association.

The 46-year-old signed a four-year deal on Wednesday after his nomination as Sam Allardyce's successor was nodded through during an FA board meeting at St George's Park.

Southgate became interim manager in September, stepping up from his role as under-21 boss, winning two and drawing two of his four games in charge and was the only candidate interviewed for the job.
