The last time England won a knockout match at a World Cup, Trent Alexander-Arnold was 7 years old.
That was back in 2006, since when the Three Lions have managed to appear in a grand total of ONE knockout game, which they lost 4-1 to Germany.
In fact, 1966 aside, England’s overall World Cup record is pretty miserable. Since they first entered the tournament in 1950, England have won just eight knockout games – three of which came in ’66, meaning that in the ensuing 52 years, they’ve racked up a mere FIVE wins in total in the knockout stages.
But how many of those eight defeated opponents can you remember?
