England coach Allardyce forced out in disgrace after 1 game

MANCHESTER, England (AP) Even by English soccer's standards, the latest embarrassment is a new low. Sam Allardyce was forced out in disgrace after one game in charge of the national team.

Having taken 25 years to reach the pinnacle of English soccer management, Allardyce was toppled after only 67 days by his hubris and indiscretions involving undercover journalists posing as businessmen.

The English Football Association decided Tuesday, within 24 hours of a Daily Telegraph sting being published, that the 61-year-old Allardyce lacked the integrity to hold one of the most prestigious jobs in the game.
