Gareth Southgate had led England into the knockout stages of the World Cup in Qatar.
Victories over Iran and Wales and a draw with the USA saw them qualify for the next round of the competition in the Middle East, and a comfortable 3-0 win over Senegal in the last 16 set them up for a clash with France in the quarter-finals.
It is Southgate's third major tournament at the England helm; he took them to the World Cup semi-final in 2018, then guided England to the Euro 2020 final in 2021 where they lost to Italy on penalties.
Whatever happens in Qatar there will be interest in Southgate's contract situation.
Back in November 2021 the former Middlesbrough boss signed a new deal with the national side until December 2024 . His coaching team, including Steve Holland, also extended their contracts until that time.
Speaking at the time, Southgate said: "I am delighted that Steve and I have been able to extend our stay in our respective roles.
"It remains an incredible privilege to lead this team. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mark (Bullingham, FA chief executive), John (McDermott, technical director) and the board for their support - and of course the players and support team for their hard work.
"We have a great opportunity in front of us and I know they and the fans are all excited about what this squad could achieve in future."
It means Southgate will lead England during their qualification campaign for Euro 2024 in Germany.
