England Football History Book

Our personalised England football history book captures the highs and the hopes of over a century of England International Football. Beginning with coverage of England’s 1-0 win over Scotland in 1905, this book records a magnificent history of great games and titles through the decades, right up to the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

England’s record achievement of reaching the semi-finals for the first time in 28 years is featured, including the scintillating group stage triumphs against Tunisia 1-0; their roaring 6-1 victory over Panama; the nerve-shattering success over Colombia; the whirlwind win over Sweden – even the defeats feature. England’s youngest captain, Harry Kane, guided by Gareth Southgate, has restored the pride of a nation, giving fans an epic edition of memories to reminisce in this edition.

The early games against all the home international sides, the tension and the excitement of the pre-war matches in the 1930s against Germany, Italy, Austria and even a ‘Rest of Europe’ side where England triumphed 3-0 in 1938, are generously covered. Articles continue after the war including England’s entry into the World Cup in Switzerland in 1954 and all the main stories from the World Cup since, including of course 1966. All the main international tournaments and games are covered right up to the recent past including the classic encounters such as England’s 5-1 thrashing over Germany in Munich in 2001.
