In defense, John Stones will wear number 5, while Harry Maguire will wear number 6. These are the only two available slots for defenders.
Eric Bell played in all five matches of the 1966 World Cup and is the only man to have done so. He was also the first player to be sent off in a World Cup match when he was given his marching orders after kicking Germany's Klaus Fischer in the chest during their group stage match. The incident occurred in the 44th minute of play. Germany went on to win that match 2-1 and they advanced to the next round with a perfect record.
Here is how each member of the English squad finished at the World Cup: Adrian Heath - lost with England; Kevin Keegan - lost with France; Graham Taylor - lost with Scotland; Ron Greenwood - lost with Northern Ireland; Bobby Moore - lost with England; Martin Peters - lost with Wales; Billy Bremner - lost with Scotland; Tommy Docherty - lost with Scotland; Alf Ramsey - won gold medal with England.
England last played number 5 in a 2006 World Cup match against Sweden. David Beckham did not start that game but came on as a substitute.
Mr. Harry Maguire John Stones (No. 5) and Harry Maguire (No. 6) look to be first-choice centre-backs, while Declan Rice (No. 4) and Jordan Henderson (No. 8) are first-choice midfielders. There are three other players who have been given numbers in the English system: Ryan Fraser (No. 10), James Ward-Prowse (No. 17) and Ethan Ebanks-Landell (No. 19). None of them have played any games yet.
Number six is one of the most famous numbers in football history. It was worn by two greats of the game - Paul Scholes and Pele - and it will be worn again when the current squad gathers for training next month. The only question is by whom?
Scholes was a central midfielder but was often used as a forward role because of his ability with both feet. He was a product of Manchester United's youth system and made his debut against Bury in August 1995. He went on to make over 250 appearances for the club and score 42 goals. In 1999, he moved to Liverpool where he continued to play until his retirement in 2013 at the age of 36. He died in April 2018.
Pele was undoubtedly the greatest player in world football.
Grealish, Jack Jack Grealish will wear the No. 7 shirt, implying that the Aston Villa midfielder might play an important role this summer, while veteran attackers Raheem Sterling and Marcus Rashford will wear the Nos. 10 and 11, respectively. Grealish is a late replacement for former captain Wayne Rooney, who retired after last season.
Rooney's retirement means that there will be new faces at the top of the scoring charts this year. The striker position is one that England often struggles with, but if Grealish can produce similar levels of performance to those seen in Spain during Euro 2016 then he will be sure to get plenty of opportunities to prove himself.
The fact that Grealish was called up by Gareth Southgate suggests that he is preferred over others such as Jordan Henderson or Eric Dier - who were named in the squad but did not make the final cut. This indicates that Grealish could have a good chance of being selected when the team plays its first game this summer. However, nothing can be guaranteed until then.
England players have used numbers for years; it is a tradition in English football. The only difference today is that these are modern-day players so they can be identified easily by their teammates and coaches.
Raheem Sterling will wear number ten, while Jamie Vardy will wear number eleven. The two new players will join the English national team for their upcoming matches against Sweden on March 24 and Switzerland on April 13.
Sterling made his international debut in 2014 as a 17-year-old rookie player for Liverpool. The England captain has since then become one of the most important players for his country, scoring 15 goals in 60 appearances.
Vardy made his international debut in 2015 as a replacement player after Kyle Walker was banned from playing due to an ankle injury. The 29-year-old striker has since then become one of the most feared attackers in world football with 31 goals in 63 appearances. He currently plays for Leicester City.
England traveled to Sweden for a friendly match on March 24. The game will be played at Stadion Norra in Stockholm. This is the first meeting between England and Sweden since Sweden qualified for the 2016 European Championships. England won 2-1 away in their last match on February 16. Raheem Sterling scored both England goals.
After the match with Sweden, England will travel to Valencia for a UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying match on March 27.
Dennis Viollet, one of Sir Matt Busby's "babes," was one of the best No. 10s to ever wear the Manchester United shirt. Since the war, just a few players have worn the jersey... Dennis Viollet, one of Sir Matt Busby's "babes," was one of the best No. 10s to ever wear the Manchester United shirt.
Rashford is the first homegrown player to wear the number since David Beckham in the 1996/97 season. Before being assigned to Rashford, the number belonged to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who left the club in the middle of last season. Wayne Rooney had previously inhabited it for 11 years. Purchase the new Rashford t-shirt!
For the encounter against Joachim Low's world champions, Gareth Southgate's team will wear "dark blue" rather than usual white jerseys. The last time England used an alternative strip at home was against Egypt in 2010, when they wore red jerseys and white shorts.
England have never worn yellow shirts under Gus Poyet, and it is unlikely to happen on this occasion either. The last time England played outside of their traditional colors was against Sweden in 2001, when they wore green shirts with gold accents. That match was also held at Wembley Stadium.
England's last game before the World Cup started was a 2-1 win over Switzerland at St. George's Park. After the match, Southgate said that any suggestions that his tactics would be based on who else is playing or what other countries are wearing are "completely false". He added: "We'll go into the tournament with the same principles we've always done - play good football, be aggressive, try not to lose too many games."
Low's Germany face England in the first match of the tournament, which will be held in Russia from 14 June. The game is scheduled for 15 June at Saint Petersburg's Luzhniki Stadium.
England last won the World Cup in 1966, when they were led out by manager Sir Alf Ramsey.
