NOW TRY Quiz! Can you name the England line-up from the 1966 World Cup match against West Germany?

In the last 24 years, only one nation has won the World Cup twice. That's France – the most recent of those triumphs in 2018 and the least recent in 1998. 

That means that out of everyone on this list, no one appears twice. Every single player to have been in a World Cup-winning squad since '98 – that's 137 players – has only won it once. It's even rarer to win a tournament than it used to be, you know.

A lot of these players will be household names, of course. There will be those who have won everything in the game at club level and topped it off with a world title… and those who were bench fodder at the time that you can't quite believe have a gold medal at this level. 

Enough talk, though: how many of these lads can you recall?
