Can you name England’s XI from Kevin Keegan’s last match in charge?


Kevin Keegan’s tenure as England manager didn’t go as planned, and it had a sad ending: he resigned in a  Wembley toilet after the Three Lions suffered a 1-0 defeat to Germany.

A long-range free-kick from Dietmar Hamman was the difference between the two sides. It was the final match at the old Wembley, a qualifier for the 2002 World Cup – England would famously have their revenge with a 5-1 thrashing in the return fixture in Munich – and brought an end to Keegan’s reign.

“First of all I’ve told the players that this is my last game,” an emotional Keegan said in his post-match interview.

“I’ve very disappointed with the result obviously, not for myself but for the players as particularly in the second half they worked very hard, for all my staff and particularly for the FA, as that’s why I’ve been there a long time.

“From my chairman right down to Adam Crozer and David Davis, they’ve been wonderfully supportive of me.

“I’ve probably had a longer run than I could have expected. After Euro 2000 a lot of managers who did a lot better than me fell by the wayside. There support has been wonderful and make that (resigning) very difficult for me.

“But nevertheless I just don’t feel I can find that little bit extra that I think you need at this level to find a winning formula.

“I couldn’t have asked for more effort from the players. I’ve kept them together and I think they enjoy playing for England. Obviously they enjoy winning more and that’s not what we’ve been able to do today.
