England Home 2002

Flag of England

First international: Scotland 0-0 England (1872)

Biggest win: Ireland 0-13 England (1882)

Biggest loss: Hungary 7-1 England (1954)

Most capped: Peter Shilton (125 caps)

Top scorer: Bobby Charlton (49 goals)

Star player: Wayne Rooney (Manchester United FC)

This shirt was worn during England's unsuccessful 2002 World Cup campaign. The qualifying campaign to get there was more memorable though with a 5-1 win over Germany and then possibly the best ever solo performance from David Beckham managed to get a draw vs Greece which automatically qualified England that year. But then Ronaldinho was the problem as his free kick went over Seaman and knocked the English out.
