Once upon a time, England were the best at the world at football. No… really.

In 1966, football truly came home, returning to the island in which its laws were written down, as 16 teams from around the globe descended on Blighty. England were to win the entire competition, too, beating West Germany 4-2 at Wembley Stadium.

Almost 60 years later, the Jules Rimet trophy is still gleaming, waiting to be re-claimed by the Three Lions. Our question to you this morning is how many of the legendary lions from that day in '66 you can remember. 

Three minutes on the clock; 11 players to guess. This one should be seared into your brain…
