A Brief Look at England
England has made 14 appearances in the World Cup. Despite their high number of appearances, they have won the cup only one time. They were the champions in 1966, which they have also hosted the cup. However, England was always considered to be the contenders of the cup with their iconic soccer squads over the years. England will be directed by a new coach, Gareth Southgate, who played as a defender in the National Team at 1998 and 2002 World Cups. He succeeded Sam Allardyce after elimination of England in Euro 2016. When we look at the squad of England, we see Harry Kane as the captain, who will be playing as a forward. Raheem Sterling and Jamie Vardy are other weapons of England against the opponents. Earlier in 2017, Wayne Rooney has announced that he was retiring from the national team. Yet, the team consists of young and powerful players who can replace Rooney’s experience. As we said earlier, England was always one of the contenders of the World Cup. There is no doubt they will try to make history again in Russia.
