The Football Association's search for a successor to Sven-Goran Eriksson is said to be down to a "secret" shortlist.
FA chief executive Brian Barwick, international committee chairman Noel White, Premier League chairman Dave Richards and FA vice-chairman David Dein are the four men who have been appointed to find a new boss.
BBC Sport rounds up the latest news and speculation surrounding the vacant England job.
Middlesbrough boss Steve McClaren is still tipped by most of the newspapers as the man to succeed Eriksson, but Charlton manager Alan Curbishley has leapt back into the frame.
He is poised to have a second interview with the FA this week, while Sunday's reports that McClaren could be confirmed as early as Wednesday of this week have been played down in the press just 24 hours later.
Curbishley's chances appeared to have diminished after his side's FA Cup quarter-final defeat to McClaren's Boro last week, after which he said he had not heard anything from the FA following an initial interview.
Meanwhile, the Guardian reports that Portugal coach Luis Felipe Scolari is still in the running for the job, despite his statement on Sunday that he would not make any decision on his future until the end of July.
That seemingly ruled him out of the England running as the FA wants to make an appointment before the tournament begins on 9 June.
WHAT THE MANAGERS ARE SAYING
12 April - "I'd like to reassure everyone connected with Bolton that I'm looking for players so that we can continue to compete with the elite of English and European football."
14 April - "I understand the FA want to give the job the thoroughness it deserves and they are looking at every angle. But this has dragged on for some time and got in the way and every match and press conference is getting hijacked."
12 April - "I've coped with the speculation game after game but I can't think about anything else but Middlesbrough. I let everyone else do the speculating. My focus, and I mean this genuinely, is on my job at Middlesbrough and my sole intention is to bring success here."
Former Celtic boss O'Neill is the only one of the five candidates believed to be on the FA's shortlist not to have made any comment so far.
Luiz Felipe Scolari
15 April - "I'll think about my future after 31 July. I don't know what I'll do after Germany."

Oh please....waiting for the FA to formally announce McClaren as the next manager is like watching a train wreck in slow motion. This has mediocrity stamped all over it.

I think that Alan Curbishley is the man for the job. He has made something of Charlton Athletic, bringing them into the Premiership and keeping them there despite a lack of resources. With a host of world class talent in the likes of Owen, Robinson and Lampard, he would work wonders for the national team.
I hope they appoint someone like Stuart Pearce who has enough passion. McClaren and Curbishley don't come across to me as someone like him. I think Big Sam deserves to be recognised and appointed as England boss!
At this level it is all about having a winning mentality and an edge. O'Neill has all three in spades and is the obvious choice. The others, with the possible exception of Allardyce, fall well short. I fear the FA will go for McClaren. England's loss will be Newcastle's gain.
O'Neill's last two teams, Leicester and Celtic, have both played with big men up front and their football hasn't been good on the eye. Would he play the same sort of style with England? He's gonna bring back Emile I bet ya!

Why not a woman manager for a change? I know there is still a great deal of prejudice against women managers, but I think a woman could provide the revolutionary structural shift in formations and style of play that our game so sorely needs.
