After the disappointment of missing out on their first UEFA Euro trophy last summer, England and Southgate will be looking to push to claim their second FIFA World Cup title. In recent years and considering the amount of talent they enjoy, The Three Lions have underperformed in the World Cup competition.

England did not enter the competition until 1950 but have entered all eighteen subsequent tournaments. They have failed to qualify for the World Cup group stages on three occasions, 1974, 1978 and 1994. England have also failed to make it out of the group on thee occasions, in 1950, 1958 and 2014.

England at the FIFA World Cup

England national football team reached a World Cup Final once –  when they won it back in 1966. Apart from that campaign, England are yet to reach another World Cup Final. In the FIFA World Cup in Russia, the England squad managed to reach the semi-final of the competition but lost out to Croatia in extra time.  

In recent years, England have invested heavily in their youth system, and it has been paying dividends producing world class talents like, Foden, Bellingham, Saka, Rashford and many others. 

Peter Shilton is the player with the most appearances for the England national team, playing an impressive 17 matches in 1982, 1986 and 1990. Gary Lineker still holds the record for the top goalscorer at the World Cups with 10 goals, but he will hope that Harry Kane, who is currently still playing and has six goals to his name in the competition, will overtake his tally and push the nation to a World Cup victory.

England successes and failures at the previous FIFA World Cup

There are few better feelings for a national team than to win the FIFA World Cup on home soil. The England national football team managed to achieve that goal in 1966 when they won the first and only World Cup held in their home country. 

Another successful campaign was back in 2018 Russia, when England managed to claim second place in the Group G, winning against Tunisia and Panama but losing out to Belgium. In the round of 16, a penalty shootout had to decide the tie which went in favour of the England squad. A professional display against Sweden securing a 2-0 win booked their place in the semi-final against Croatia. Trippier curled a beautiful free-kick to put England ahead in the fifth minute, but Perisic bulleted his side level in the 68th minute but Madzukic ended the hopes of the England national team in reaching their second final in extra time. 

Disappointing campaigns for the England national football team were surely in the 2014 FIFA Brazil World Cup when England lost the first two opening matches to Italy and Uruguay, both 2-1. In the last match against Costa Rica, it was a 0-0 draw, seeing England knocked out from the group stage without winning a single game. The campaign is a failure due to the great squad that at the time England football team had but failed to deliver. 

England’s road to the Qatar 2022 World Cup 

England competed in Group I in the European qualifiers and own the group comfortably winning eight games and drawing two in the process. England managed to score an outstanding 39 goals in the qualifying round, the most of any other team in the European qualifiers and conceding just three goals.

England will be competing in Group B in the Qatar FIFA World Cup, coming up against USA, Iran and the winners between Wales and Ukraine in the playoff. England national football team are the favourites to win the group with most pricing England as one of the favourites to win the tournament.

England squad for the World Cup in Qatar

England national football team players are one of the most group of players that show promise and under Gareth Southgate they have improved a lot. The likes of Phil Foden, Mason Mount and Bellingham are some of the best young football players with Foden winning his second Premier League title with Manchester City in the 2021/22 season. 

If anything, Garteh Southgate will be spoilt for choice as he has great players in any position, with the Goalkeeper position a hot debate. Nick Pope and Pickford have both enjoyed a stellar season with their club, with Pope being relegated with Burnley. 

As seen in the qualifiers, England are a well-oiled machine both defensively and offensively, scoring the most goals and conceding just three goals. It will be down to the moments of brilliance from Harry Kane, Sterling and his other teammates to get their national team back where it belongs.
