Former Hull boss Bruce ahead of Pardew, Howe, Hoddle for England job

Former Hull City manager Steve Bruce is leading the race to become the next manager for the England national team, according to some bookmakers.

Sam Allardyce had to leave his post as manager of the England national team in disgrace on Tuesday and since his departure, a number of candidates have already emerged as potential replacements for the 61-year-old.

The likes of Crystal Palace's Alan Pardew, AFC Bournemouth's Eddie Howe and former Three Lions boss and Tottenham Hotspur star Glenn Hoddle are just some of the names being mentioned with the role.

However, it is believed that Bruce, who left his post with the Tigers in the summer, is currently the leading candidate to take over the reins of the Three Lions with some bookies opening him up at 3/1 to step in to the FA job.

Other names linked include USA head coach Jurgen Klinsmann, who was a key target following Roy Hodgson's departure, and Rangers manager Mark Warburton.
