Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti has praised the "consistency" of Jude Bellingham's recent performances ahead of his side's clash with Real Sociedad on Sunday.
The England men's national football team, also known as the Three Lions, is one of the biggest teams in international football history.
England play their home matches at the iconic Wembley Stadium, which was reopened in 2007 after the original Wembley was demolished, rebuilt on the same grounds as the old stadium.
England's early history
England and Scotland are the joint-oldest international football teams in the world, having been founded simultaneously and first played each other in a match organised by England's Football Association (FA) on 5 March 1870.
England were eliminated from the first round of the 1950 World Cup, but Winterbottom stayed on and led them to the quarter-finals in 1954.
In 1958, having lost several key players to the Munich air disaster, they lost to the Soviet Union in the play-offs for a quarter-final spot.
The 1962 tournament was Winterbottom's last World Cup in charge and he once again led England to the quarter-finals, losing 3-1 to Brazil.
Alf Ramsey and the World Cup victory
In 1963, Ramsey was appointed manager and led England into the 1966 World Cup, which the Three Lions went on to win on home soil.
They beat West Germany 4-2 in extra time in the final, with Geoff Hurst scoring a famous hat-trick, although one of his goals possibly did not cross the goal line, much to the chagrin of the West Germans. The goal remains highly debated today.
Under Ramsey, England reached the semi-finals of the European Championships for the first time in 1968, but were eliminated by Yugoslavia - but Ramsey's men beat the Soviet Union 2-0 to secure third place in the tournament in the play-off.
England qualified automatically for the 1970 World Cup in Mexico as defending champions, but were eliminated 3-2 after extra time in the quarter-finals by West Germany as their opponents from the '66 final exacted revenge against their conquerors four years prior.
The Don Revie fiasco and Ron Greenwood
Under legendary former Leeds United manager Revie, England failed to qualify for Euro 1976 or the 1978 World Cup. Revie had previously enjoyed tremendous success in charge of Leeds, but had horrific relationships with some within the Football League and the FA, which meant he was never truly welcomed as England manager.
Revie ultimately left England to become manager of the United Arab Emirates, having apparently courted the job for some time while still in charge of his nation.
England under Bobby Robson
England lost every match at Euro 1988, but they impressed at the 1990 FIFA World Cup, losing 4-3 on penalties in a dramatic shootout in the semi-finals to West Germany after a 1-1 draw after extra time - including an infamous miss for Stuart Pearce which led to the nation rallying behind the England defender. England then lost to Italy in the third-place play-off.
The turbulent '90s
Graham Taylor replaced Robson, but England did not win a single match at Euro 1992 and he resigned after failure to qualify for the 1994 World Cup. After a defeat to the Netherlands, Taylor's tactics were widely criticised.
Despite not qualifying for the 1994 World Cup, hosting Euro 1996 ensured England qualified automatically for the tournament. Alan Shearer scored five goals at Euro 1996 as England made the semi-finals, but Venables ultimately resigned following investigations into his personal finances.
The Golden Generation
Sven-Goran Eriksson was England's first foreign manager and the Swede led them to the quarter-finals of the 2002 World Cup, Euro 2004 and the 2006 World Cup.
It was under his management that Wayne Rooney burst onto the international scene. The rise in the careers of the likes of Ashley Cole, Rio Ferdinand, John Terry, Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard meant that this was supposed to be England's "golden generation".
Fabio Capello took over and England performed well in 2010 World Cup qualifying, but at the tournament itself, they were eliminated in the last 16 in a 4-1 defeat to Germany. Lampard saw a goal ruled out after it was wrongly suggested that it had not crossed the goal-line.
Roy Hodgson led England to the quarter-finals of Euro 2012, where they lost to Italy on penalties. However, they suffered a disastrous 2014 World Cup campaign, which saw them eliminated in the group stage.
The Euro 2016 crisis and 2018 World Cup resurgence
Hodgson's hopes of a revival at Euro 2016 were dashed when England were embarrassingly eliminated in the round of 16 in a 2-1 defeat to an unfancied Iceland team who had qualified for their first ever major tournament.
Having spent three years managing England's U-21 team, former England international player Gareth Southgate took charge with the senior team thereafter. With his knowledge of coaching young English talent, he managed to successfully transition the team and integrate new talent in the squad to shape a new England team for the current generation.
His approach paid dividends and led England to the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup, where they surrendered an early advantage and lost 2-1 to Croatia, then going on to lose the third-place playoff to Belgium. This was England's best performance at a World Cup since 1990.
Euro 2020 final and heartbreak
With Euro 2020 being delayed for a year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, England took the chance to bed-in a new-look team from the one that went so close in Russia.
However, although it was England's first final in 55 years, the result was a crushingly familiar one, with Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho, and Bukayo Saka missing in a penalty shootout disappointment at Wembley.
World Cup in Qatar
Former Everton and Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney is England's all-time top goalscorer with 53 goals. Peter Shilton, the goalkeeper who was beaten by Maradona in the 1986 World Cup quarter-finals, is their record appearance-maker with 125 caps.
Bobby Moore was the captain of the England side that won the 1966 World Cup and the West Ham United legend is also regarded as one of England's greatest ever players.
England have had several fan-favourites in recent years to have played for their country, including the likes of Peter Crouch - whose famous 'robot' celebration became popular in England, alongside his fantastic return of 22 international goals in just 42 caps.
England's biggest rivals
England have a long-running rivalry with Germany as a result of their many major tournament battles, including the 1966 final and the 2010 round of 16 - both matches which were marred by controversy.
There is also a strong footballing rivalry with Argentina, who inflicted two of England's most notorious World Cup defeats. Diego Maradona's "hand of God" goal and Diego Simeone getting David Beckham sent off 12 years later were two moments which consolidated the rivalry. The rivalry was also exacerbated by the events of the Falklands War, when England and Argentina were in conflict in 1982.
The likes of Wales, Scotland and the Republic of Ireland also have rivalries with England. Scotland in particular hold the distinction of playing England in the oldest ever international fixture, with the nations having now met over 100 times and England boast the superior head-to-head record between the countries.
England's passionate fanbase
Despite changes to the football culture, there have been various unsavoury incidents involving travelling England supporters in recent years, including at Euro 2016 and a March 2018 friendly against the Netherlands. The latter incident saw over 100 English supporters detained. This was evident in London too for the final for Euro 2020, where a number of ticketless fans attemoted to storm gates at Wembley to gain access to the ground.
