Peter Shilton becomes England's most capped World Cup player.
South Africa 2010 will be the 13th World Cup that England have contested since making their debut in the competition back in 1950.
During this time the Three Lions have played in 55
matches, winning 25, drawing 17 and losing 13.
England’s most capped World Cup player is, unsurprisingly, also the country’s most capped international ever, Peter Shilton. The legendary stopper played in the 1982, ’86 and ’90 editions of the tournament, racking up an impressive 17 appearances.
He was nearing 41 when he played his last international, the Match for Third Place against hosts Italy in 1990.
