Despite appearing to put himself forward for the England job in the immediate aftermath of Monday's shock defeat to Iceland, Alan Shearer is backing Glenn Hoddle and Gareth Southgate as the best men to lead England in the wake of Roy Hodgson's resignation.

Southgate fits the FA's remit, and he's done a very good job with the Under-21s.

"Hoddle is a great coach who's still got a lot to offer. If they went down that route I would back it.

"The new manager has to come in with passion, belief and a direction.

"It's about having a leader in there. Southgate is certainly one of those guys. As is Hoddle, who I played under at the 1998 World Cup.

"Under Roy it's been a disaster. England need a system to play to. It's been noticeable in the tournament that Italy and Germany have a system and stick to it. The players fit into it. That is what England need; an identity."
