It’s not an easy life being a goalkeeper for England during a World Cup.
The slightest handling error during the finals can lead to pariah status and years of criticism that inevitably lasts until the next big international tournament comes around and everyone realises there aren’t any better options. Still, some have done worse than others, and at least an England keeper hasn’t pulled off anything quite as bad as Loris Karius’ howlers in the Champions League final – it will take something astonishingly bad from any of the three men going to Russia to overshadow those blunders.
Anyway, on with the quiz. Sixteen keepers have been picked by England since Italia 1990, during which the Three Lions actually ended up bringing four custodians after one was injured in the opening game. How many of them can you recall?
Note: Qualification for inclusion is selection for England’s final 23-man World Cup squad, which means that not all have necessarily actually played a World Cup match.
