England World Cup profiles



England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson has chosen his 23 players for the World Cup finals in Germany this summer.

It will be the final tournament for the Swede before he stands down as coach.

England are aiming to win the World Cup for the first time since 1966 and many believe they have the ability to go all the way.

BBC Sport spoke to four former England players - who earned a combined 245 caps between them - to assess Eriksson's squad, while former England coach Graham Taylor gives us his views on the manager.
