England head to Qatar bidding to land the World Cup for the second time in their history.


The Three Lions boast a decent record at major tournaments in recent years having reached the semi-finals at the last World Cup in Russia and the final of Euro 2020.

England manager

Gareth Southgate takes charge of England at a major tournament for the third time and is looking to become the second manager to lead the Three Lions to World Cup glory.

The 52-year-old has been in charge since 2016 and boasts an impressive win rate in excess of 60 per cent, although he heads to Qatar with the pressure building and critics sniping following England's dismal performance in the UEFA Nations League.
