Can you name every member of England’s 2002 World Cup squad?


Eighteen years ago, England‘s dreams of winning the 2002 World Cup ended as Sven Goran Eriksson’s men were beaten 2-1 by Brazil in Shizuoka.

Hosted by South Korea and Japan, the tournament was quite the mixed bag for England, with a famous group stage victory over Argentina accompanied by draws with Sweden and Nigeria.

The Three Lions then thumped Denmark 3-0 in the round of 16 but were ultimately outclassed by the eventual winners in the last eight.

England took the lead in the first half, but Brazil fought back thanks to goals from Rivaldo and an infamous free-kick from Ronaldinho, who was later sent off.

But can you name the 23-man squad England took to the Far East? You’ve got five minutes to name every squad player, with 11 clubs represented. The players have been ordered by squad number.

Once you’ve completed this quiz, why not try and every player capped by Gareth Southgate for England?
