England's World Cup Finals

Players

This is a list of all the England players who were at the World Cup Finals.

 

This table contains the World Cup final tournament records of the 220 players who have been named to England's World Cup squads, from the first in 1950 to the last in 2014.  Only 173 of them actually played in World Cup finals matches.  Another 47 were named to a squad but did not play.  Six players--Viv Anderson, George Eastham, Alan Hodgkinson, Martin Keown, Nigel Martyn and Chris Woods--were named to two squads but never played.

Two players from England's World Cup 2014 squad had jumped into the top ten on the England all-time World Cup appearances list, that being Steven Gerrard and Wayne.

Only one more player from England's World Cup 2014 squad moved within the top 20:  Frank Lampard.

*Only 17 of the 22 official squad members actually travelled to Switzerland for the 1954 tournament.  Five players--Ken Armstrong, Allenby Chilton, Johnny Haynes, Harry Hooper and Bedford Jezzard--were put on reserve status and remained at home awaiting a call if the need arose.  It did not.

**Some sources state that England took only 20 squad members to the 1958 tournament in Sweden, and their squad lists do not include Alan Hodgkinson or Maurice Setters.  Other sources, including FIFA's official World Cup records, list 22 players on the squad and include both Hodgkinson and Setters.  The likelihood is that these two players were included on the squad list submitted to FIFA but did not travel to the tournament.  

***Steven Gerrard was named to the World Cup 2002 squad and Danny Murphy was placed on standby.  Gerrard withdrew because of injury before the tournament began, Murphy was called to the squad and Trevor Sinclair was put on standby.  Murphy, too, withdrew due to injury before the tournament began, and Sinclair was called to the squad.

****Rob Green was named in the World Cup 2006 squad, but withdrew following an injury in a warm-up B international.  Scott Carson was called up as a replacement.

*****Rio Ferdinand was named in the World Cup 2010 squad, but withdrew following an injury in training in South Africa.  Michael Dawson was called up as a replacement.
