Antonio Conte: "It's a pity for [Sam Allardyce] being sacked by the national team after only one game.

"I know the importance of being the coach of your country, for the national team."

Sam Allardyce: "It's going to be a difficult task, but not impossible. If we get a chance we have to take it.

"It's a game for us to try to get a point in - or three."
