England will need to overcome Belgium, Panama and Tunisia if they are to progress from Group G at the World Cup in Russia this summer. Their previous World Cup outing was the 2014 World Cup, which saw England finish bottom of Group D behind Costa Rica, Uruguay and Italy. With odds of 1/9 to qualify from the group, 2018 World Cup betting suggests that England won’t repeat the shambles of 2014.
The manager of the Three Lions, Gareth Southgate, has already confirmed his 23-man squad for the tournament and included a few surprises as well as excluding a few too. Liverpool right back Trent Alexander-Arnold, who has yet to feature for the national side, has been called up to the squad for the tournament, despite more experienced right backs Kyle Walker and Kieran Trippier also being included.
The Three Lions haven’t had much luck since they won the World Cup on home soil back in 1966. They’ve been subject to some controversial red cards, a ghost goal and even had the Hand of God punish them. Ahead of this summer’s tournament in Russia, we’ve looked at England’s failure at the World Cup, including some of the most underwhelming players to ever pull on an England shirt and created an infographic from the information.
