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.

Someone may say Scholes or Lampard is better, but Gerrard is the most complete man

He had everything. One of the most complete football players I've ever seen on the pitch!

One and only Mr. Liverpool... Legend, Inspiration, The best there is, The best there was, The best there ever will be.

BEST PLAYER EVER.
Played for 18 in Liverpool

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

Wayne Rooney is by far the best because He's the top scorer for both England and Manchester United.

3 David Beckham David Beckham David Robert Joseph Beckham is an English retired professional footballer. He played for Manchester United, Preston North End, Real Madrid, Milan, LA Galaxy, Paris Saint-Germain and the England national team, for which he held the appearance record for an outfield player until 2016.

Greece say no more

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

The best player played with passion ever time he put on the England shirt true legend and for me the best player I've ever watched

4 Bobby Charlton Bobby Charlton Sir Robert "Bobby" Charlton is an English former football player, regarded as one of the greatest midfielders of all time, and an essential member of the England team who won the World Cup in 1966, the year he also won the Ballon d'Or.

Not only England’s greatest by some distance, but one of the greatest footballers ever. If you take in the Munich air crash when he was only 20 it is just amazing what he has achieved in the game.

By far englands greatest player dynamic and elegant no other England comes close. Even George best said he never saw a player go past opponents as easily as charlton. And a great sportsman as well.

Has to be top scorer great goal

He is the best

5 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

The most gifted technical skilfull player England has EVER produced no one else comes close

7 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.

Unlike Gerrard he was instrumental in helping Chelsea win the PL (on more than one occasion)

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.

No matter what, he will find the space to score goal..

9 Bobby Moore Bobby Moore Robert Frederick Chelsea "Bobby" Moore was an English professional footballer. He captained West Ham United for more than ten years and was captain of the England team that won the 1966 World Cup.

People who know football history know the 60 goals in a single championship 1927-1928 which will never be broken in England.This is the 4th best in the world of all times. But too far in the past...
P. S. Can't you delete the non English players? They are a lot.The most ridiculous is D. Law.The person who added him definitely knows football history but unfortunatelly Dennis is Scottish...
