It remains to be seen whether the Football Association, England’s governing body, deem Allardyce’s role as untenable.

Carlos Ruiz Retires As The Greatest World Cup Qualifying Player Of All-Time

Carlos Ruiz played his final match for Guatemala on Tuesday night, the 36-year-old striker hitting St. Vincent and the Grenadines for five goals in Los Chapines 9-3 victory.
