WORLD CUP HISTORY:

England’s best performance is winning the Cup in 1996, held in England, later on, reaching fourth place in 1990, Italy. Other than that, the team has reached the quarterfinals on six occasions, including 2002 (Korea/Japan), and 2006 (Germany). 2014 (Brazil) World Cup was in fact entirely their worst ever performance at a world cup, ending up with just one point after two losses to Uruguay and Italy and a goalless draw with Costa Rica.
