Top Ten English Football Players

The Top Ten

1 Steven Gerrard Steven Gerrard Steven George Gerrard is an English professional footballer who plays for Major League Soccer club LA Galaxy.

One word. LEGEND. Have you seen he 2005 UCL final in Istanbul. He is the engine room of Liverpool and England.

Zinedine Zidane said Steven Gerrard is the best player in the world.

Great Central Mid field in my opinion he is the only reason Liverpool haven't already been relegated to the championship

Some players are way better then him my option is that John terry and Garry Cahill are better then him

2 Wayne Rooney Wayne Rooney Wayne Mark Rooney is an English professional footballer who plays for and captains both Manchester United and the England national team.

Rooney is simply the best and already has 200 plus more goals than gerrard and beckham combined and Rooney for me ranked top 10 in the world because if he misses a chance they aren't far away from the goal and plus he is not greedy and takes very accurate free kicks and reminds me of scholes in midfield and he is no doubt world-class

One of the best in England's history, if not the best. With 43 goals. Just 5 goals short of Sir Bobby Charlton's all time goal scoring record.

Good but he is not young now

Record goalscorer for Manchester United, record goalscorer for England. Nothing more to say.

3 David Beckham David Beckham

he might be preety old but he still got it crosses love shooting love

He has scored the second farest goal seventy two metres away from goal and that's more than halve the pitch


He is a good player

4 Frank Lampard Frank Lampard Frank James Lampard is an English professional footballer who plays as a midfielder for New York City FC in Major League Soccer.

I am a Spurs fan, but I recognise greatness:

Lampard was: The most technically gifted. The hardest worker. The most professional. Much-Maligned by England fans and never dropped his level or showed dissent. An incredible goalscorer. Written off as a youngster. Highly intelligent. Very respectful. Not dirty. The most consistent player at high level over longest period (which is a true sign of greatness: see Tendulkar in cricket/Federer in tennes/the snooker greats). He won everything an Englishman can win at club level (only the 1966 World Cup squad can say they won anything on the international stage - of them, maybe Bobby Charlton could be compared, no-one else).

Frankie is the most consistent premier league player and by far the highest scoring englishmen. And you know what after 34 he can kick some thing reall. The highest scoring england player in the damn list and the best midfierlder of al time.

is 'e english I thorght 'e was brazilian

Which idiot said that he is the best midfielder of all time. Not even the top 1000

5 John Terry John Terry

Despite of many issues outside the pitch he still have his focus in the game, simply the best defender in the world...

Ohh John Terry he bangs who he wants...

6 Paul Gascoigne

The most naturally gifted player England has ever produced. Medals and stats don't make a player, the magic with a ball does.

Most naturally technically gifted footballer of his generation if not for his self destruct button would be without doubt an English football legend.

Some people never saw his natural gifted greatness not 1 English player been anywhere near him not even the amazing Gerrard

Gifted talent. I don't see any other english man paying that level. I compare Gaza with Zidane & Maradona, same level I have no doubt on it. Gaza, Platt & Linekar nearly missed the world cup. Was fun to watch Gaza rolling down to penalty area.

8 Paul Scholes

Probably the most underrated footballer in Europe. One of the best midfielders of his generation. Even Zidane & Xavi Hernandez claim he is one of the best!

Come on..This player must be in top 5,His passing ability and vision were from another planet, one of the best midfielders of all time along with Xavi,Pirlo,Zidane and others...
