It has been some ten years since the first edition of England Players’ Records was published, during which time more than 100 players have been capped for the national side on at least one occasion.
During that same time frame, no fewer than five players have joined the exalted ranks of centurions by winning their one hundredth cap. Only two managed to accomplish the feat in the first hundred years of the England national team (Billy Wright and Bobby Charlton), and only two players joined them before the century was out (Bobby Moore and the all-time record holder, Peter Shilton).
In a five year spell between 2009 and 2014, they were joined by David Beckham, Steven Gerrard, Wayne Rooney, Ashley Cole and Frank Lampard. Wayne also passed Bobby Charlton’s tally of England goals but his record-breaking feats ended with his international retirement in August 2017.
In among the centurions are those whose England careers were significantly shorter eg. Martin Kelly came on for the final two minutes of a friendly against Norway in 2012, thus wresting the previously held record of eight minutes from Peter Ward and Jim Barrett.
In addition to the newly capped players, extensive research over the last decade by author and archivist Graham Betts has confirmed once and for all the identities of some of the previously obscure England players. This is a definitive and comprehensive compilation of England Players’ Records that no true fan will want to miss.
Available as a standard edition at £17.49 inc. P&P (usual price £20+P&P), or, as a Limited Edition, signed by World Cup winner George Cohen at £66 inc. P&P. Just 66 copies have been signed and numbered.
