Current Squad / Roster

Soccer fans in England will be hoping that this is the year that ‘football comes home.’ It has been a long time since the Three Lions’ last success at a major tournament, with their World Cup win in 1966 being the only major success. However, the previous two international competitions have shown that there appears to be a growing belief that the wait could be coming to an end, and the England stats support that belief.

England World Cup Future Odds

The FIFA World Cup odds make England one of the favorites to win the winter competition. The Three Lions are currently an 11/2 chance, with only Brazil being shorter than them in the betting. However, the England World Cup history could mean that bettors may stay clear of the Three Lions, as they have often promised so much and delivered so little. England is also the 1/3 favorite to win Group B, with the USA next best at 11/2.

FIFA World Cup England’s Record

Historical Events

The England World Cup record beggars belief, given the talent that has played for the Three Lions throughout history. England’s only victory in the World Cup came in 1966, as they beat Germany 4-2 thanks to a hat-trick from Geoff Hurst at Wembley. Since then, England has failed to reach the final.

They have managed to make the semi-finals on two occasions but were beaten in both 1990 and 2018. The so-called Golden Generation of players, which included David Beckham, Paul Scholes, Frank Lampard, and Steven Gerrard, failed to make it past the quarterfinals between 2002 and 2010.

England has a pretty solid record of making the World Cup, as they have only failed to qualify on three occasions since 195. The most recent failure came as the Three Lions failed to qualify for the 1994 U.S. World Cup. The biggest disappointment in England World Cup history since 2000 came in 2014, as the Three Lions failed to make it out of the group stage under Roy Hodgson.

However, there were certainly signs of improvement under Gareth Southgate four years ago. England took a younger side to Russia in 2018, and they reached the semi-finals for the first time since 1990. But, despite leading early against Croatia, the Three Lions eventually crashed out in extra time. There were still significant moments during the tournament, which included a first-ever World Cup penalty shootout success against Colombia in the round of 16.

The England stats show that Wayne Rooney is one of the most historical players in the national team’s history. Rooney holds the record caps for outfield players, having represented England on 120 occasions. He also still holds the goalscoring record, but his 53 goals are only three more than current captain, Harry Kane.

Goalkeeper Peter Shilton holds the record for most England caps, as he played 125 times for the Three Lions between 1970 and 1990. Other notable players to have won more than 100 caps for England include David Beckham, Steven Gerrard, and Bobby Charlton. Shilton also holds the record for the most clean sheets in England history, as he managed 66.

England Fun Facts In Previous World Cups

Before exploring the England betting options for 2022, it is worth looking at their FIFA World Cup betting stats. Gary Linekar is the only Three Lions star to have scored at least ten World Cup goals, while Harry Kane’s tally of six from the 2018 edition places him second. Geoff Hurst is third on the list with five goals.

The 2018 World Cup saw England produce more goalscorers in a single campaign, as six players found the back of the net (Harry Kane, John Stones, Jesse Lingard, Harry Maguire, Dele Alli, Kieran Trippier). If there was ever a result to showcase England’s World Cup history of promising so much, then it was their 1-0 defeat against the U.S. in 1950. The U.S. side was given a 9.5% chance of victory, and it is widely believed to be the greatest upset in World Cup history.

Expected FIFA World Cup Team Roster

The England stats always show that it’s hard to second-guess what Gareth Southgate is thinking with his squad. He often springs a surprise when selecting players, which means form could play a big part when it comes to the chances of stars getting a seat on the England World Cup plane. But, this is how their squad could look later this year.
