According to todays Sun, McClaren was sacked last night after the game. STEVE McCLAREN was last night sacked as England manager. The FA will rubberstamp the decision at an emergency board meeting this morning after Englandâ€™s Euro dream died following the humiliating defeat by Croatia. Immediately after the game, McClaren had insisted he would not quit. But we can reveal senior FA board members informed McClaren half an hour later that he was out. Seat cancelled The doomed England boss will receive a Â£2.5million golden handshake despite failing to get England to the 2008 Euro finals. FA chief executive Brian Barwick, his trusted aid Simon Johnson, FA chairman Geoff Thompson and chairman of the international committee Noel White met at 10.30 last night and decided to call an FA board meeting for 8.30am this morning. McClaren had been booked on the plane to South Africa tomorrow for Sundayâ€™s World Cup draw in Durban but his seat will be cancelled. He had always said he wanted to be judged after the 12 Euro qualifiers but last nightâ€™s Wembley horror show signalled just how low England had sunk under his leadership. I feel he has been made a scapegoat - He has done a brilliant job to England in to a qualifying position, with an average bunch of players!!! It was the players that let England down.
