International A-Z

Andy Greeves explores the vast number of countries our players have represented on a letter-by-letter basis. The series continues with letter ‘E’ and looks at individuals to have won between 10 and 20 caps for England while under contract with us.

England

Int_ParkerOur former forward Willie Hall enjoyed a remarkable international career, scoring nine goals for England in 10 appearances. He made his debut for the Three Lions in a match against France in December, 1933, and on November 16, 1938, scored five goals in a 7-0 triumph over Northern Ireland at Old Trafford during a 30-minute period either side of the half-time interval. Three of those goals came in a four-minute spell, which remains a record for the fastest hat-trick ever scored in an international match.

Defender Kyle Walker has won 11 caps for England to date, all of which have come since his switch here from Sheffield United in 2009. The former England Under-19 and Under-21 man made his debut for the senior side against Spain on November 12, 2011, as a substitute for our then-midfielder Scott Parker. His first start came in the 1-0 victory over Sweden three days later, in which he was named Man of the Match. He was heavily involved in the Three Lions’ successful qualification for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, playing in five qualifying matches and most recently represented Roy Hodgson’s men in a 1-1 friendly draw in Italy on March 31, 2015.

Currently playing his club football for Fulham, Scott Parker has represented England on 18 occasions so far in his career, with 12 of his caps having been won while playing for us. His international debut came against Denmark on November 16, 2003, while his first appearance for his country as a Spurs player came against Bulgaria on September 2, 2011. The hard-working midfielder (pictured, right) captained the Three Lions in their 3-2 defeat by the Netherlands at Wembley in February, 2012, and was included in the England squad for UEFA Euro 2012, playing against France, Sweden, Ukraine and Italy. His most recent appearance came against San Marino on March 22, 2013.
