Hopefully if you are creating a round or an entire pub quiz night of the English national football team, you’ll find something in here that you can use.

Maybe you are here just to brush-up your trivia knowledge.

Furthermore, I hope that I’ve been unbiased in creating these questions. (As a Scottish quiz-writer making an England football quiz haha).

Good luck in the summer and hopefully not too many pub quizzes are cancelled due to the football being on.
