Can you name England’s Xl from their 1-0 win over Argentina, 2002?


On June 7, 2002, England recorded a famous win over old foes Argentina in the group stage of the World Cup.

After being knocked out of the competition by the South American side in both 1986 and 1998, England had revenge on their minds before the game in Japan.

The Three Lions took the lead through a penalty on the stroke of half-time and the defence then held firm in the second half to secure the three points.
