Sam Allardyce Was Spotted Eating A Burger In A Pub While Watching England Game
| Last updated
As you are probably fully aware, England thrashed Panama earlier today and football is well and truly coming home.
In an impressive display England managed to get their biggest World Cup win ever, beating Panama 6-1.
I think it's fair to say that Gareth Southgate is probably feeling quite smug right now, but while his team were making history, former England manager Sam Allardyce was spotted watching the game - like many other England fans - in a pub, with a burger.
Did you enjoy England beating Panama 6-1? Did you enjoy it as much as Sam Allardyce watching in it a pub eating a Big Mac? #ENG #ENGPAN #WorldCup pic.twitter.com/WAGKvIIBQd

How he's managed to find a pub that quiet while the match is on in the middle of London is beyond me, but, fair play, he looks like he's enjoying himself.
Sixty-three-year-old Allardyce was seen in the Lord Raglan pub in the capital as part of a promotional gig with William Hill and in between games of pool with Robbie Savage and a spot of live punditry, he was filmed tucking into a burger and watching the game.
Photos of the former-England manager watching the pub's big screen popped up online, with some people calling it 'the best thing about the World Cup', I mean, that might be a bit strong, but it is quite funny.
Allardyce was in charge of the team until he was axed following an investigation by the Daily Telegraph into corruption within the beautiful game.
Speaking earlier this month, Allaradyce admitted to being jealous of Southgate, saying: "Jealous is what I feel. Massively disappointed. That should be me there. Unfortunately, because of the circumstances that wasn't the case.
"One night I was playing golf - next day they said you can't carry on. And I still don't know why... because in the cold light of day, there was no substance, nothing behind it.
"If a bit more time was taken, a bit more patience, I believe I should still be the England manager."
And if he was feeling jealous before the competition, we can only imagine how envious he is right now. Still, at least he got to enjoy a burger and a pint, eh? It could always be worse.
