Football didn’t come home, but what a summer 2018 was for England fans.

Before the World Cup in Russia, expectations were relatively low, perhaps for the first time in decades following the disaster in 2014 and some uncertainty about Gareth Southgate’s credentials.

The main hope was for England to get past the last-16, something they hadn’t done since 2002, with anything further than that a bonus.

That was achieved with large slice of drama, as England won a World Cup shootout for the first time ever, and the Three Lions marched on to the semi-finals (a first since 1990).

The journey would be ended by Croatia in devastating fashion and England also fell to Belgium in the third-placed play-off, but for many the magic and memories of what happened before will last.

But can you name the 23-man squad Southgate took to Russia, to carry England fans on that emotional journey? We’ve given you three minutes to do your best, without cheating.

Good luck!
