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 203 players who have been named to England's World Cup squads, from the first in 1950 to the last in 2010.  Only 158 of them actually played in World Cup finals matches.  Another 45 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.

One player from England's World Cup 2010 squad had jumped into the top five on the England all-time World Cup appearances list, that being Ashley Cole.

Four more players from England's World Cup 2010 squad have jumped into the top 20:  Steven Gerrard, Emile Heskley, Frank Lampard and John Terry.
