England are set to pass an historic milestone this week when they play their 1000th game.
Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson is the most capped player in the current England squad and he’ll make his 56th international appearance if he faces the Montenegrins.
But Henderson and the rest of his teammates are way off England’s most capped players, many of whom will be celebrated on Thursday night.
While some like Francis Jeffers, David Nugent and Neil Ruddock have only ever pulled on a Three Lions shirt once, others have done so more than 100 times.
