The Football Association's search for a successor to Sven-Goran Eriksson goes on - with no agreement yet on who will get the job.
BBC Sport rounds up the latest news and speculation as FA chief executive Brian Barwick, international committee chairman Noel White, Premier League chairman Dave Richards and FA vice-chairman David Dein search for a manager.
Sir Trevor Brooking is reportedly unhappy at the prospect of Luiz Felipe Scolari or a foreign coach becoming the next England manager.
England's director of football development apparently believes Scolari's appointment would not help develop other English managers.
The Sun reports an FA insider revealing Brooking's concerns that Scolari taking over would be a snub on the quality of English managers available.
Meanwhile, The Daily Star cites worries about Scolari's desire to develop English coaching talent under his stewardship.
So, while others on the FA board seem to have been convinced of Scolari's credentials, Brooking appears to be against the move.
But, if the FA want the Brazilian, they may be forced into a U-turn over when they announce Eriksson's successor.
The FA want to unveil the new England manager before the 2006 World Cup but Scolari maintains he is concentrating on masterminding Portugal's challenge at the finals and does not want to discuss another job until after the tournament.
That could open the door for Steve McClaren or Sam Allardyce taking over.
WHAT THE MANAGERS ARE SAYING
17 April - "The whole thing is bizarre. Every day you are news and it's difficult when you are trying to run your club. Whenever I go into a press conference before a game it gets hijacked by people wanting to talk about England.
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."
21 April - "Obviously it's flattering, but it's due to the success of the football club, it's due to the success of what the players are doing on the park. Do I need to defend my record? No, it's there in black and white. You just have to look at the facts, and that's all I am. I manage a football team and I'm judged on results, end of story."
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
24 April - "I am coach of Portugal and I am only thinking and speaking about Portugal until the last day of the World Cup."

The England manager simply has to be an Englishman. We've tried the foreign option and it has not worked. Big Sam emulates best the three lions that we wear proudly on our shirts!
I just fail to understand why is it so important to have an English manager. I dont really see any English manager good enough to take the job.
There are no English managers who seem to have the necessary qualities. We should have got Hiddink - but now we should try to get Scolari. There is another alternative - persuade Sven to stay - the best England manager ever in my view!
The FA have really made a mess of it this time. It seemed as though they've painted themselves into a very tight corner with no way out. It would be hypocritical of the FA to expect Scolari to negotiate any deal before the World Cup.
The nice thing about Latin managers is that they're willing to take risks to get results, and that's exactly what England needs.
You can't choose an England manager based on nationality. Football is a world game, more now than ever before and to reflect that we need a manager who understands world football.
If Scolari was English there would be no hesitation choosing the next manager!
Tell the FA to stop procrastinating, be bold and make that appointment, after all there is a World Cup to concentrate on!
Scolari is the man the FA should go for. The FA, however, seem to have completely made this selection proces a public one and that is not going to help Scolari as he is currently the Portugal coach.
