Quiz! Can you name the last 50 players to make their England debut?

Tyrone Mings

Tyrone Mings put in an assured performance against Bulgaria last night – but which 49 debutants came before him?

We are part of The Trust Project What is it?

Tyrone Mings made his first appearance for the senior England team in the 6-0 victory over Bulgaria on Monday night. The Aston Villa player didn’t put a foot wrong, despite one of the most unpleasant atmospheres it is possible to make your Three Lions debut in.

Looking back through previous debuts, though, not all of them get to play in such comprehensive wins.

We’ve gone back through the last 50 players to make their England debut, and it’s a bit of a mixed bag. Some of them continued on and are in the England squad right now – others didn’t even make it to cap number two. Ouch.

However, all are worth equal marks in our quiz. We’ve given you the year they made their full England debut, the clubs they’ve played for (while representing England) and their playing position.

There are nine minutes on the clock to get as many as you can. Let us know how you get on @FourFourTwo (we’ll retweet the best scores, if you don’t give answers away), and then challenge some close buddies/arch enemies.
