The Football Association may be reluctant to hire a foreigner as Sam Allardyce's replacement as full-time England manager based on previous painful experiences, FA chief executive Martin Glenn told the BBC Wednesday.Swede Sven-Goran Eriksson and Italy's Fabio Capello are the two foreigners the FA have turned to with varying degrees of success this century.Eriksson -- along with Roy Hodgson the only manager to have gone to three major finals with England in the past 20 years -- guided England to three successive quarter-finals, losing to Portugal on penalties in two of them.Glenn said he expected interim manager Gareth Southgate, who impressed in his stewardship of the England Under-21 side but ruled himself out when Hodgson stepped down after losing to Iceland at Euro 2016, to be a candidate.
