Twitter reacts to Allardyce’s first England game

It’s been the international break hogging the headlines this week, with nations aiming to make strong starts in their bid to qualify for the 2018 World Cup, including England.

Sam Allardyce was in the Three Lions dugout for the first time since succeeding Roy Hodgson in the summer, as he looked to make an impact in their opening Group F clash with Slovakia.

So, following the action from the World Cup qualifying meeting on Sunday evening, Coral bring you the best online Twitter reaction from a game that failed to set pulses racing…

Slovakia v England Twitter round-up

Despite being shunned by new Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola and departing to Torino on loan, Joe Hart retained his spot as England’s number one under Allardyce, even after some pre-match whispers…

Just 13 seconds into Allardyce’s reign and hopes were already sky high. They’re 16/1 with Coral to go all the way in Russia if you’re as confident!

It was another milestone outing for Manchester United’s Wayne Rooney, with the England skipper making his 116th appearance…

Imposing stance from Big Sam…

Former Liverpool defender Martin Skrtel was up to his old tricks again, with Harry Kane being his latest victim…

Following a dull opening 30 minutes, England fans voiced their opinions, as they saw little change from Euro 2016…

Big Sam did his best Joachim Low impression during the first-half…

Wonder if Hodgson was watching?

The first-half of Allardyce’s England career was far from encouraging…

The second-half started pretty much the same, but a little wishful thinking was needed…

Skrtel had been skating on very thin ice after being booked and it took a horrific challenge from the Slovakia skipper to finally get sent off…

Theo Walcott was introduced to proceedings, much to the delight of fans…

Kane was off form throughout, with his touch having been completely off, and he was replaced by Liverpool’s Daniel Sturridge in the closing 10 minutes…

Even in the dying moments it was far from enthralling…

Although, with just seconds remaining, Adam Lallana managed to squeeze free and fire in his first ever senior goal for England to hand Allardyce a winning start…

A far from impressive performance from England but three World Cup qualifying nonetheless for Big Sam!
