Here’s more from EA Sports latest news post:
Every World Cup cycle brings a new level of hype around the England squad, thanks to a football madness that’s deeply rooted in the country. Even before their epic 1966 trophy win on home soil, the birthplace of the sport always considers itself the rightful heir. After winning their qualifying group with a talented young squad, they firmly believe that this could finally be their year.
Harry Kane leads the line for England, fresh off another excellent season high up the scoring charts with Tottenham Hotspur. He’s joined by a brilliant midfield packed with the likes of Raheem Sterling and Dele Alli, some of the most creative players in recent England history.
Take a look at the squad in the gallery below and keep reading for a reminder of the World Cup Mode update.
