England squad members received a curious little keepsake on Thursday in the shape of an adorable little personalised postcard.
Personally signed by Sam Allardyce, each player was sent a card to congratulate them for being a part of England’s win over Slovakia and thus get Big Sam’s reign off to a winning start.
Indeed, Allardyce even personally signed off a message that read: “Well done! Our journey has begun with our first win together. Looking forward to seeing you soon.”
How positively adorable… the only problem being that the cards arrived two days after Big Sam was so abruptly relieved of his duties by the FA.
One anonymous England source told Telegraph Sport:
You couldn’t make it up. It was obviously meant as a nice gesture, but now the card will become a bit of a collector’s item. It’s priceless!
Just when you thought it couldn’t possibly get any sillier.
