England Internationals: Football Quiz

England beat Moldova 4-0 in a 2014 World Cup qualifier on Friday night, with a team that included Rickie Lambert.

Whilst many believed a victory for England should have been a formality, over the years England have played in many controversial and memorable encounters.

From Paul Gascoigne's wonder goal against Scotland at Euro '96 to Paul Ince's or Terry Butcher's blood-soaked bandaged heads, England's football history is full of iconic and memorable images.

One area of England's history that might not be so memorable though is it's managers; England's players have now played under eight different managers since the turn of the Century.

Whilst Sven Goran-Eriksson lasted from 2001-2006 you have to go back to Bobby Robson for the next managerial stint of any length.

The same can’t be said for some of England’s senior players. David Beckham, Steven Gerrard and Ashley Cole have all broken the 100-cap barrier and Frank Lampard should pass the landmark if he stays fit for the near future.

If Ashley Cole stays fit and plays throughout the 2014 World Cup he would pass both Bobby Moore and Charlton, potentially he could even eclipse Beckham’s 115 caps, though England’s most capped player, Peter Shilton, is still a little off with his record haul of 125 caps.

Whilst it’s not a question in the quiz, surprisingly Beckham scored only 17 goals for England during his 115 caps.
