England World Cup Record

Well, we’ve won one World Cup, but how have we done in the rest of them? To be honest, not brilliantly well. Losing semi-finalists in 1990 has been the next closest we’ve been to winning another World Cup, and we blew some of our best chances by not evening bothering to enter the first three tournaments!

Our overall World Cup record, prior to Russia 2018, reads as follows… Played: 62, Won: 26, Drawn: 20, Lost: 16, Scored: 79 goals, Conceded: 56 goals

England Player Records and Stats

England Top Goalscorers

  • 1. Wayne Rooney – 53 goals
  • 2. Bobby Charlton – 49 goals
  • 3. Gary Linekar – 48 goals
  • 4. Jimmy Greaves – 44 goals

  • 12. David Platt – 27 goals
  • 13. Bryan Robson – 26 goals
  • 14. Geoff Hurst – 24 goals

Amongst those fine, fine players here is a player we think deserves special mention:

Vivian Woodward, who played for England between 1903 and 1911, scored 29 goals in just 23 England matches. He played for Tottenham and Chelsea and captained Great Britain to gold medals at the 1908 Olympics in London and the 1912 Olympics in Stockholm. He also served in the British Army during the First World War and sustained injuries that meant he had to retire from football. We can’t see many getting near his goal-scoring average for England though!
