Gareth Southgate will lead the England football team towards the 2018 World Cup and 2020 European Championship after being appointed permanent manager by the FA.
The 46-year-old, who has been acting as interim manager since the end of September, succeeds Sam Allardyce who departed 67 days into the job after being caught up in a newspaper sting.
In a statement released after a meeting of the Football Association board at St George's Park, the FA said the former England defender had agreed to a four-year contract.
Southgate, who was in charge of England's under 21s for 32 games, has overseen two wins and a draw in England's three World Cup qualifying games since taking over in September, leaving England top of the group.
England also drew with Spain in a friendly under his coaching.
"I am extremely proud to be appointed England manager. However, I'm also conscious that getting the job is one thing, now I want to do the job successfully," the former Crystal Palace, Aston Villa and Middlesbrough player said.
"I've thoroughly enjoyed working with the players over these past four games and I think there's huge potential.
"For me, the hard work starts now."
His first match in permanent charge will be away to Germany in a friendly in March, followed by a World Cup qualifier at home to Lithuania later that month.
