Before and since the triumph of 1966, the story of England’s efforts in the World Cup has been one of dissapointment and unfulfilled expectations.
Defeated semi-finalists in 1990, they have only twice progressed beyond the last eight, again eliminated at that stage in 2002. Alone of football’s major powers they have trailed three times to qualify for the finals, spending twelve years in the wolderness between 1970 and 1982.
England’s chief European rivals – Germany and Italy – have both won the World Cup three times: since the first post-war World Cup of 1950, the first in which England and the other British associations participated, Germany have appeared in seven finals.
