Having secured a 1-0 World Cup qualifying win over Slovakia in his one and only game in charge, Allardyce will now have to watch on as Southgate guides England through the tournament.
Tottenham striker Harry Kane is ready to silence his England critics at this summer's World Cup.
England's previous appearance at a major tournament - Euro 2016 - ended in despair when they were knocked out of the last-16 by unfancied Iceland.
Ashley Young said he had no concerns over his family coming to Russian Federation, amid worries over racism after defenderDanny Rose announced he had told his family not to travel to the tournament. But for us it's to play attacking football, to score, and that's important.
"Across three weeks, we have been really pleased to get the 23 we picked through all of the sessions". "The FA have spoken to us security-wise and I've got every confidence in them and with family going out there".
"I think a lot has been said about staying in cliques and teams staying in teams, but I've not seen that at all here". We know everything else comes on the back of that.
But Southgate insists that his players are primarily determined to entertain and ensure that England at least enjoys a feel-good factor during the tournament.
"We are certainly favourites, but I would not consider ourselves a top favourite (for the trophy) as other countries have more experience", he said.
"We hope we can send people to work the following day having enjoyed our matches", said Southgate before departing for Russian Federation. Constantly trying to improve, playing in a style that we've used in the a year ago or so and that people have warmed to.
Donegan penned the song in 1965 as the official tune to go along with the Football Association's mascot for the tournament.
