The FA Crest

The classy central defender announced his retirement from England duty following the Three Lions' World Cup campaign in 2018, having been a reliable performer for both club and country over the years. 

There’s not much in the domestic game which the Yorkshireman hasn’t won with Chelsea and he’s been an England regular throughout his time at Stamford Bridge.

A tough-tackling and solid presence at the back, as well as a capable ball-player and aerial presence in attack, the former Aston Villa and Bolton Wanderers player Cahill has been a Three Lions regular since his debut against Bulgaria in 2010.

An unfortunately timed injury suffered in a warm-up game with Belgium kept him out of Euro 2012, but he’s since represented England in the 2014 World Cup, Euro 2016 and the 2018 World Cup.


"We are talking about an important player with great experience. He has played big competitions. I know that when you have to go to play a World Cup or European Championships, it’s important to have players with great experience because the pressure will become very strong for everyone."

Antonio Conte
