England have been in the FIFA World Cup 12 times since 1930
England hosted the FIFA world cup once in 1966.
They have been in the FIFA world cup 4 times
i want to know the number of times fifa world cup has been played since its inception in 1930.
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 has only won the 1966 world cup. There have been 19 world cups including the 2010 world cup. So it is safe to say that England has lost the world cup 18 times. But generally, nobody really "loses" the world cup.
Lebanon have never qualified for the FIFA World Cup finals.
