"I'm delighted to confirm Steve's role with the England team," said head coach Sven-Göran Eriksson. The 43-year-old McClaren added: "Working with the England team is a tremendous honour, so I am delighted to be continuing."
World Cup role
McClaren first worked under Eriksson during the qualifiers for the 2002 FIFA World Cup and the finals in Korea/Japan before stepping down to concentrate on matters at Middlesbrough.
However, he returned to the set-up after his replacement with England, Brian Kidd, was diagnosed with cancer. Kidd will continue to work for the national team as a scout, while McClaren's involvement has been approved by his club chairman Steve Gibson.
