Although England didn’t join the contest until 1950, they have participated in all 18 tournaments. Three times, in 1974 (West Germany), 1978 (Argentina), and 1994 (United States), they were unable to go past the group stage. The other three times were in 1950, 1958, and 2014. Their best-ever showing was winning the cup in the England-based event in 1966. Additionally, they placed fourth in 1990 in Italy and in 2018 in Russia. As for the other nine times, including 2018 (Russia), the group has made it to the quarterfinals nine times. What happens for England World Cup 2022 is yet to be predicted?
As a World Cup fourth-place finisher and a penalty shootout loss to the Euros last year, it is hard not to picture the Three Lions as title favorites this year.
During the tournament, Southgate will have to make some tough decisions due to his tendency to favor certain players.
There is no doubt that England’s squad appears very strong at this world cup due to players like Harry Kane, Marcus Rashford, Rahim Sterling, etc. They are the star players of modern football and having them show another team they are ready for anything.

England World Cup 2022 Star Players
- Harry Kane
Harry Kane is a star player who plays for Tottenham in the Premier League and even he is called one of the best players in this modern football. He has been fantastic in recent years and also this season for Tottenham he has been fantastic. He scored 11 goals and assisted 1 goal for his club this season.
Harry Kane also played in the 2018 world cup and he scored 6 goals, which resulted in awarding him Golden Boot for scoring the 2018 world cup.
Having him in England’s team is a blessing from them because finding such a striker is absolutely a win-win situation.
2. Phil Foden
Phil Foden will be playing his first FIFA World Cup and a youngster like him can be a real X factor for them. He has been fantastic to Manchester City and seeing him perform in such a great rhythm makes the England team more terrific. He has scored 6 goals and assisted 3 goals for Manchester City. A winger like him is always a danger to the opponent’s defense. Even though he is a midfielder but he can change his playstyle from midfielder to a forward winger.
Phil is capable of presenting himself on such big stages, and he will do so. A crucial stage such as the World Cup in 2022 will be a crucial one for such a young player. We hope he will do his country proud and perform to the best of his ability.
