After Roy Hodgson's resignation in the wake of England's withering Euro 2016 ​defeat to Iceland, FA Chief Executive Martin Glenn did little to assure the masses that the search for a successor was in safe hands when he admitted he was "no football expert." 

Indeed, the quest to find the right man to lead England out of their darkest period in tournament football should be led by men with experience and expertise to call upon. 

One such man is Sven-Goran Eriksson, who has managed all over the world since he was stepped down in 2006 following England's World Cup quarter-final exit. 

The Swede, who also led the Three Lions to the 2002 World Cup and Euro 2004, has offered his assistance to the FA as they search for Hodgson's successor, admitting he finds the current situation saddening. 

“I am always available and would like to help the FA, or the new manager, whoever he is," he told The Sun. "I am always on the end of the phone. I experienced a lot with England and you learn a lot in six years, good and bad.

“Everything seems terrible when you go out of a tournament, but things are not so bad as they seem. England have waited so long to get to a final – and it can happen again.”

Glenn, technical director Dan Ashworth and former Manchester United CEO David Gill will appoint a new boss. A number of candidates have emerged already, including Sam Allardyce, Glenn Hoddle, Laurent Blanc and Jurgen Klinsmann.
