Can England Win FIFA World Cup 2022

England keeps their unbeaten tag till the Quarter-Finals. England is the top goal scorer as a team having 12 goals in 4 matches. Actually in 3 matches as they had a goalless draw with USA. In the first match against Iran, England scored whooping 6 goals. So simply, they are top goal scorers overall and in a single match as well. Their current squad is experienced and perfect which makes them unbeatable. No team will wish to face England in the early knockout stages. But Senegal’s wish did not came true and now they are eliminated:)

England’s World Cup records are pretty decent. Englishmen won the World Cup only once in 1966. England was always a changing side and always had many great players in their squad. Let’s have look at their best performance on World Cup stages till now.

7th-time Quarter-Finalists England had awesome world cup records. As I said before, this team was always a big challenge for any team since then. England had amazing players in their history. Let me list down a few of them.

Greatest English Footballers of All Time

There are many outstanding English footballers but let me list 5 out of them for you which are fans favorites.

Bobby Charlton

The only World Cup winner for England Bobby Charlton was an amazing English Footballer. The goal-scoring midfielder is the second-greatest goalscorer in England’s history as a midfielder.

Bobby Moore

Even the great Pele said once “I have never played against such a great defender”. Bobby Moore was the best English captain ever.

Steven Gerrard

Liverpool star Steven Gerrard was a midfielder and scored 125 goals in his carrier.

David Beckham

90’s style icon David Beckham was a great footballer in England’s history.

Wayne Rooney

Wayne Rooney remains England’s youngest goal scorer at just 17 and, despite ups and downs, he was the top goal scorer for England till date.

Current England Squad

Coach: Gareth Southgate

Captain: Harry Kane

Goalkeepers: Jordan Pickford, Nick Pope, Aaron Ramsdale.

Defenders: Harry Maguire, John Stones, Kyle Walker, Luke Shaw, Kieran Trippier, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Eric Dier, Conor Coady, Ben White.

Midfielders: Declan Rice, Jude Bellingham, Jordan Henderson, Mason Mount, Kalvin Phillips, James Maddison, Conor Gallagher.

Forwards: Harry Kane, Phil Foden, Raheem Sterling , Marcus Rashford, Bukayo Saka, Jack Grealish, Callum Wilson.

Most of the predictors already predicted England as a winner of the FIFA World Cup 2022. Their performance till now in this World Cup might prove the predictors right. They are simply dominating their opponents with their amazing form, outstanding stamina, accurate passing, and perfect finish. Harry Kane is about to break Rooney’s records to be the all-time top goal scorer from England. This shows his current amazing form. Marcus Rashford and Bukayo Saka are also at the peak form of their carriers. I can only say, the current English team is looking perfect and are deserving contenders to win this FIFA World Cup 2022.
