England is one of only 7 countries in the world to win the FIFA World Cup. They won it on home soil in 1966. Brazil hold the record for winning the most times.

The best performance since then in a tournament was in 1990 when Bobby Robson led England to a semi final where we lost on penalties to Germany.

Wayne Rooney is currently England’s leading all time goal scorer with 50 goals having just overtaken Bobby Charlton’s record which stood for nearly 50 years.

England employed their first foreign coach in 2001 when Sven Goran Eriksson took charge leading England to a World Cup quarter final in 2002.
