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

Steven gerrard is my favourite football in the world. His technique is amazing. He wears my favourite number: 8.

He is simple the best of all. All he did for his club & county is unforgivable.

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

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

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.

He is the best midfielder have ever seen in the England national team

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

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

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

7 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.

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

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...

15 Harry Kane Harry Kane Harry Edward Kane is an English professional footballer who plays as a forward for Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur and the England national team.

Wow, Harry Kane recently scored two goals against Liverpool in a 4-1 win to his club SPURS. He even defended as a attacker? And MOST IMPORTANTLY he has a higher shot frequency than RONALDO! Also he is the captain of the second best premier league club, and a BRILLIANT international country the captain of both teams. Just saying Harry Kane is BRILLIANT, and all the games he plays he shows it.

Best young talent I've ever seen
