This summer, all football roads lead to Russia, as fans across the globe tune in to watch the 2018 World Cup. Can Gareth Southgate and captain Harry Kane lead England to victory? That remains to be seen, but in the meantime, we’ve taken a look at the cars driven by the England squad members. Contains Range Rover.
Jordan Pickford (Everton): Mercedes-Benz C220 AMG Sport
Jordan Pickford is expected to be England’s number one keeper in Russia, but we’ve been unable to identify his current choice of wheels. In December 2012, he posted four photos of a 2012 Mercedes-Benz C220 AMG Sport, with the caption: “Goodbye Audi, hello the Merc.”
Kyle Walker (Man City): Lamborghini Huracan
Kyle Walker played a key role in Manchester City’s title-winning season and is expected to be a central figure in England’s World Cup bid. In September 2017, Walker was named as the fastest Premier League player, so it’s perhaps fitting that he drives a Lamborghini.
Danny Rose (Tottenham): Range Rover Autobiography
Danny Rose is said to be up against Kieran Trippier for a place in the starting 11. Meanwhile, the Spurs star, who has been linked with a move to Manchester United, drives a Range Rover Autobiography.
Eric Dier (Tottenham): Range Rover Sport
Should England lift the trophy, Kahn Design founder and CEO Afzal Kahn has promised to gift Eric Dier the number plate ‘NO 4’, said to be valued at £500,000. It’ll look good on his Range Rover Sport.
John Stones (Man City): Mini Cooper
Last summer, John Stones was pictured driving Kyle Walker to training in a Mini Cooper. The England and Man City defender posted a video of the drive on Instagram.
Harry Maguire (Leicester City): Audi A5 S Line
In June 2013, Harry Maguire took delivery of a new Audi A5 S Line. At the time he was playing for Sheffield United, so we suspect he has moved on to something with a little more bling since his move to Leicester City (via Hull City).
Jesse Lingard (Man Utd): Bentley Continental GT
Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard drives a Continental GT, complete with a red Bentley badge on the bonnet. There are more Bentleys in Cheshire than there are tanning shops. Probably.
Jordan Henderson (Liverpool): Audi RS7
Jordan Henderson has been spotted driving many cars, including… yes, you’ve guessed it… a Range Rover, along with an Audi RS7.
Harry Kane (Tottenham): Jaguar F-Pace
England expects Harry Kane to deliver the goods in Russia, but at least we know he’s patriotic about his home nation. He owns three cars, all of which are made in England – a Jaguar F-Pace, Range Rover Autobiography and Bentley Continental GT Supersports.
Raheem Sterling (Man City): Onyx Bentley GTX 700-4
Raheem has been spied driving a number of cars over the years, including a Smart Fortwo, Mercedes-Benz G-Class, Audi S7 Sportback, Audi Q7, Range Rover Evoque, Porsche Cayenne and Bentley Bentayga. This is his Flying Spur-based Onyx Bentley GTX 700-4.
Jamie Vardy (Leicester City): Bentley Continental GT
When Jamie Vardy signed a new £13m contract at Leicester City, he celebrated by splashing out on a Bentley Continental GT. Tipping his hat to his club, the Bentley is finished in blue, while the number plate is a highly personalised ‘J9 VDY’.
Kieran Trippier (Tottenham)
Here’s Kieran Trippier during his time at Burnley, when the club was presented with two new MG3s. The England wing-back is pictured on the left, alongside Steve Durkin (MG dealer), Sam Vokes and Tom Heaton.
Jack Butland (Stoke City): Audi RS5
In 2014, Jack Butland took to Twitter to appeal for help in finding his Audi RS5. The car was stolen from his driveway just hours before his full Premier League debut against Liverpool.
Danny Welbeck (Arsenal)
Danny Welbeck, pictured here on Citroen duties for Arsenal, has owned a number of cars, including an Audi S3 and a Corvette, with the Chevrolet presented to him as part of the American giant’s sponsorship of his former club, Manchester United.
Gary Cahill (Chelsea): Range Rover Sport SVR
Gary Cahill has owned a number of Range Rovers and has often been papped around Stamford Bridge or the club’s Cobham Training Centre. This tweet from 2016 suggests he took delivery of a new Range Rover Sport. A 575hp SVR, perhaps?
Phil Jones (Man Utd): Range Rover Sport SVR
Phil Jones is another England star with an Onyx Bentley on his drive, but earlier this year, the Manchester United defender picked up the keys to a new Range Rover Sport SVR. The fastest Land Rover ever costs from £101,145 and can top 162mph.
Fabian Delph (Man City): AC13 Mercedes-Benz V-Class
Nottingham-based AC13 create bespoke Mercedes-Benz V-Class special editions, “built for complete practicality as well as keeping that faultless luxurious feel throughout”. Perfect for Manchester City and England star, Fabian Delph.
Ashley Young (Man Utd): Bentley Continental GTC
According to social media, Ashley Young has owned a number of flash motors, including a Bentley Continental GTC, Audi Q3 and a customised Range Rover Vogue.
Marcus Rashford (Man Utd): Urban Automotive Range Rover SVR
Urban Automotive specialise in body kits, styling and alloy wheels for Land Rover vehicles, and the Milton Keynes-based company can boast England starlet Marcus Rashford as one of its clients. The Manchester United forward has also been spotted at the wheel of various Mercedes-Benz cars.
Dele Alli (Tottenham): Bentley Continental GT Supersports
Much is expected of Dele Alli, with England fans hoping his successful partnership with Harry Kane will migrate from the Premier League to the World Cup. He drives a Bentley Continental GT Supersports.
Ruben Loftus-Cheek (Chelsea): Mercedes-Benz CLA
Ruben Loftus-Cheek spent the 2017-18 season on loan at Crystal Palace, but here he is leaving a Chelsea game in 2016 at the wheel of a Mercedes-Benz CLA.
Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool): Audi A3
Trent Alexander-Arnold has enjoyed an amazing season, starring for Liverpool in their run to the Champions League final and making it to the World Cup as part of the England squad. As yet, the fame and fortune hasn’t gone to his head – he still drives a humble Audi A3.
Nick Pope (Burnley): a milk float?
We’re not sure what car Nick Pope drives, but in a recent interview he revealed that he used to be a milkman. This will come in handy if he plays in goal at the World Cup, as you need a lot of bottle to face the world’s best strikers. Badum-tish.
