England coach: Gareth Southgate

Won 57 caps for England as a player but was perhaps best remembered for missing a crucial penalty against Germany in the EURO '96 semi-final at Wembley. Southgate, England Under-21s coach at the time, was initially appointed caretaker manager of the senior side in September 2016. He subsequently took the role permanently and led the Three Lions to the 2018 FIFA World Cup semi-finals and UEFA EURO 2020 final, where they lost to Italy on penalties. Contracted until UEFA EURO 2024.

EURO '96 semi-final highlights: England vs Germany

England captain: Harry Kane

Still only 29, Kane has 53 England goals to his name, moving level with Wayne Rooney's all-time record during the quarter-final against France. A predatory finisher who is equally comfortable dropping deep as a No10, Kane had mixed success during a series of loan spells as a youngster but has now scored more than 250 goals for Tottenham and is within touching distance of the club record. Even Alan Shearer's 260-goal all-time Premier League high could be in his sights a few seasons from now.

England's World Cup history 

Most appearances: Peter Shilton (17)
Top scorer: Gary Lineker (10)
Best performance: Winners (1966)
2018 World Cup: Semi-finals (L1-2 vs Croatia, aet)

England's finest hour came on home soil at Wembley in 1966, a 4-2 defeat of West Germany after extra time sealing their one and only major trophy to date. West Germany took revenge in the 1990 semi-finals and it was not until 2018 that England made it as far again, Croatia this time preventing Southgate's side from reaching the showpiece.
