Quiz! How many of the 60 England players with 50+ caps can you name?

England 1000 games

We’ve provided each player’s total caps, the year of their last (or most recent) cap and playing position. All you need to do is fill in the surnames - as many as you can in 10 minutes - then let us know how you got on @FourFourTwo. Challenge your pals while you’re at it. What better way to celebrate England's 1,00th game?

THEN TRY How many of the 73 England goalscorers since 2000 can you name?

A disclaimer: before you start worrying that most of the players on this list won their caps while also representing Old Carthusians a few centuries back, fear not.

The fact that national teams played fewer matches back in the day coupled with modern friendlies where each side can substitute up to 15 players (or thereabouts) mean that the majority of these footballers have played for England within the last 20 years.

So you don’t need to be a complete history buff to get a strong start.
