England endured a disastrous 2010 World Cup – but how many members of their 23-man squad from that tournament can you remember?

After disappointing draws against the USA and Algeria in the group stage, they scraped through to the last 16 following a narrow 1-0 win over Slovenia.

The Three Lions then lost 4-1 against Germany after being cruelly denied a legitimate equaliser in the first half due to a lack of goal-line technology.

“It is the fear of the World Cup,” explained Fabio Capello for why the tournament turned out to be such a disappointment for the Three Lions.

“This is not the England that I know. It is incredible, the mistakes of the players, when they do not control the ball, the easy passes we missed. Everything. This is incredible for the level of the England players.”
