Mark Sampson sacked as England Women manager

An English Football Association (FA) statement said that when Sampson was manager of Bristol Academy in 2014 "safeguarding allegations" were made against him about his time with Bristol. In 2014, safeguarding allegations were made against him about his time with Bristol.

"At that point, provided Mark had some mentoring and training, he was deemed to pose no threat from a safeguarding perspective".

The statement went on to say that the full report came to the organization's attention last week and that it is now their judgement that it "revealed clear evidence of inappropriate and unacceptable behavior by a coach".

FA chief executive Martin Glenn and chairman Greg Clarke, who were not at the governing body when Sampson was appointed, acknowledged knowing about the allegations in 2015.

"The issues that concerned me on reading the report was the insufficient boundaries between that of a coach and player and which we judge was conduct that doesn't become an FA employee".

The FA clarified that the claims involved more than one player.

"We know that coaches are in a potential position of power and that position mustn't be abused", Clarke said.

The 11th-minute strike from Parris set England on course for a 6-0 win in their opening World Cup qualifying match, against supposedly the second strongest side in their group. "I think he recognizes it needed to be investigated and didn't dispute that".

She said: "I don't think we can just forget about that".

British sports minister Tracey Crouch said the situation was a mess and raised serious questions about whether the FA's historic processes around the recruitment of coaches were appropriate.

"These women are representing their country tonight and they wanted to make sure their level of performance was right and their attitude was right".
