The fallout from England's shocking Euro 2016 exit at the hands of minnows Iceland has well and truly begun. 

Roy Hodgson, alongside coaches Gary Neville and Ray Lewington, quickly departed following the horror show in Nice. 

Who, then, will replace Hodgson at the helm? Well, the debate has already escalated with many expecting that England Under-21 manager Gareth Southgate will be handed the role on an interim basis.

Southgate, 45, could take on the job for up to a year as England's focus turns to qualification for the 2018 World Cup. 

But that doesn't necessarily mean that he will be handed the position on a permanent basis. That's because there are a number of long-term candidates for the top job.

Wenger and Ranieri 

Indeed, as reported by the Mirror, England have the duo of Arsene Wenger and Claudio Ranieri on their shortlist. 

Wenger, of course, is approaching the final stages of his career and is still in charge of Arsenal, while Ranieri recently defied odds to win the Premier League title with Leicester City.

Both men certainly have the pedigree to become England manager, but it clearly won't be easy for the Football Association to persuade them to take on the job vacated by Hodgson.

Morgan reacts 

According to Arsenal celebrity fan Piers Morgan, however, Wenger is 'perfect for England manager'.

And his reason why is rather hilarious. Morgan claims that fourth spot would be recognised as a 'massive improvement' for England, who have endured a number of tournament collapses in recent years. 

Wenger, of course, has failed to win the Premier League title for the Gunners since 2004 and has a history of finishing in fourth position in the table. 

Finishing in fourth spot for Arsenal fans just isn't good enough, but losing in a semi-final as England manager would clearly be seen as an improvement. 

Anyway, you can see Morgan's funny tweet here...

He tweeted: "Wenger would be perfect for England manager - coming 4th would be deemed a massive improvement."

Let's be honest, though, it's unlikely that Wenger will really consider leaving his post at Arsenal in favour of a move to the Wembley dugout. 

He may well have endured a tricky period in north London, but it's fairly clear that he's still determined to secure another league title with the club before he announces his anticipated retirement. 

Should Arsene Wenger consider becoming England's next manager? Have your say below!
