Too long !
England have been in the FIFA World Cup 12 times since 1930
Since it has been a long time since they hoisted a world cup. They did it in 1966.
They hosted and won the 1966 World Cup, and they have never stopped talking about it since.
The FIFA World Cup was held in England in 1966 which of course resulted in the victory of England! It has not been held in the country since. Next year's will be held in Brazil.
England last held the world cup in 1966, that was a long time back. And Sir Bobby Moore was the captain.
1966 - and we haven't managed it again since then.
England won the World Cup for the first time in 1966. They beat West Germany 4-2 in the final game. It was the eighth World Cup and England hosted. That made them the first host champions since the the Italians won the World Cup while hosting in 1934.
England have qualified for every single world cup since 1966 except 1974, 1978 and 1994. However, they have not won a single world cup after '66 with their closest brush with victory being in Italy '90 when they came 4th.
