Can you name the England starting XI from the 2010 World Cup match against Germany?

Eleven years after they went head to head at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, England and Germany meet will meet again in the last 16 of Euro 2020. Given the history of penalty shootouts between the countries, there has been plenty of talk of spot kicks ahead of Tuesday’s Wembley meeting – particularly with Gareth Southgate, who famously missed against the Germans at Euro 96, in the England dugout.

However, the 2010 edition of England v Germany didn’t require penalties to break the deadlock. In fact, a young German side made fairly light work of the Three Lions, overcoming them by a score of 4-1. Sure, England still feel hard done by due to a disallowed goal but the fact is they were well beaten in Bloemfontein that day.

Our question for you is how well do you remember the England starting line-up? Under Fabio Capello, the team had reached the dying embers of their famed ‘Golden Generation’ and most of them should come to you fairly quickly. There a one or two though that might catch you out.
