The FA have appointed former Fuham manager Roy Hodgson as the new England manager.
The West Brom boss has signed a four-year deal which will take him to the end of Euro 2016 in France.
The FA confirmed their decision at 3pm today following four-hour long talks held yesterday and further discussions this morning between the 64-year-old and the four members of the Club England board charged with appointing a successor to Fabio Capello, who resigned in February.
The FA said in a statement: "The Football Association is delighted to announce the appointment of Roy Hodgson as England manager.
"Joining from West Bromwich Albion, Hodgson has agreed a four-year deal to become the full-time manager of the Three Lions.
"Hodgson, aged 64, who has won a total of eight league titles in a distinguished career, and coached the national teams of Switzerland, Finland and the United Arab Emirates, met with FA officials at Wembley on Monday.
"Having taken Switzerland to the FIFA World Cup in 1994 - their first Finals competition for 28 years - Hodgson also achieved a FIFA ranking of third in the world as well as successfully qualifying the team for Euro 96.
"His former clubs include Inter Milan, Blackburn Rovers, Grasshoppers, FC Copenhagen, Fulham and Liverpool. He has also managed in Norway and Sweden.
"In addition, he has been a regular member of FIFA and UEFA's technical study groups at tournaments.
"Along with his vast experience of international and European football, Hodgson is the only English manager currently working in the top flight to have won the League Managers' Association manager of the year award."
As widely expected, the FA have made a long-term appointment, handing Hodgson a deal that will see him manage the national team in Poland and Ukraine this summer, the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, and Euro 2016 in France.
Before he takes up the reigns full-time at Wembley, he must first see out the season at West Brom. The Midlanders have two Premier League games remaining, against Bolton and Arsenal. Although the FA have agreed that he will be released for England duties when required.
Well done Roy and best wishes from Fulhamweb.
