Russia. 2018. The World Cup final. England Captain Mark Noble, his hair playfully tussled by the tournament's golden boot winner Andy Carroll, lifts the world cup aloft, basking in the ultimate footballing glory before taking a step back and handing the cup to his coach, his mentor, the Three Lions' master tactician Sam Allardyce, who, unfortunately, is too busy removing his shirt, tying his tie around his forehead and gyrating his body for the millions watching on at home.
Ok, so we're getting slightly ahead of ourselves, but it all starts with a first step: Big Sam has officially been made England boss, signing a two-year deal to take him to the next major tournament and beyond.
Here were the internet's most chuckle-worthy reactions to the FA's new appointment...

People were THRILLED
Brendan Rodgers revealed why he didn't leave Celtic for the job
I had to turn down the England job.— Deluded Brendan (@DeludedBrendan) July 22, 2016
There is no way I could manage winning the treble and the World Cup.
Good luck Sam Allardyce.
Sam obviously didn’t play it by the book
Thoughts went to poor Steve Bruce
Any excuse to remember Big Sam’s epic Dad dancing
And more Dad dancing
There was only one direction this giant of football was going in
He imparted some wise words
Big Sam has said now is the 'Time to deliver'. He was talking to the local kebab house, though.— Paddy Power (@paddypower) July 22, 2016
