Hull boss Steve Bruce has indeed been called up for an interview by the Football Association about the vacant manager job.
Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce and USA coach Jurgen Klinsmann with the others interviewed.
Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe could be called up for an interview next, if required.
Bruce has good experience with clubs in the English Premier League and promoted Hull recently.
Bruce stated that it was “highly flattering” to be linked with the job to replace Roy Hodgson.
“I think the top of the FA in my opinion should be English. I’ve always said that, there’s nobody more patriotic than I am,” Bruce told the BBC.
“I’m honoured to be linked with it. It’s the pinnacle to go and manage your country. What bigger job in the world is there?”
