Wayne Rooney believes Gareth Southgate should be made England boss

Wayne Rooney has backed interim England manager Gareth Southgate to take the national team job on a full-time basis.

Under Southgate’s watch, The Three Lions brushed past Scotland at Wembley on Friday night, winning 3-0 in their latest World Cup qualifier.

Rooney returned to the international fold after missing his country’s last game, a 0-0 draw with Slovenia. After captaining the team last night, he had some kind words for the interim boss, and when asked about Southgate’s chances of taking the job full time, Rooney said:

“He’s done all he can and I’m sure he’s the frontrunner. From my point of view, he’s in pole position.”

After collecting three points against Scotland, England are in full control of Group F, as they look to secure a place in the 2018 World Cup hosted by Russia. The Three Lions have 10 points from four games and are two clear of Slovenia who sit in second place.

Following Friday’s loss, Scotland slipped to fifth in the group behind Lithuania and Slovakia.

Southgate was appointed to take charge of England for four games, and his final match is a home friendly against Spain on Tuesday. He saw his side win against Malta and Scotland, but could only manage a draw against Slovenia. If England avoid defeat next week, Southgate will not have lost a match while in charge of the national team.

The Three Lions are not in competitive action again until next March, when they host Lithuania in another World Cup qualifier. After impressing over the last month, Southgate is now favourite to extend his reign as England boss.

However, he is keeping his feet firmly on the ground. According to BBC Sport, Southgate wants to take some time to reflect on the last few games:

“I want time to go away and reflect. I have loved doing it but it is an opportunity for everyone to have time [to think]. The FA can decide what they want to do.”

The FA is expected to make a decision on the England job over the next few weeks. After impressing fans and pundits alike, Southgate may be expecting to get the call very soon.
