England World Cup squad surnames as street names

As England’s football team aim to avoid dead ends and cul-de-sacs at the Russia World Cup – we’ve revealed the most popular street names shared by the players.

Residents across Great Britain live in 2,280 streets which share the same name as players’ surnames from England’s World Cup squad – with Danny Rose’s surname topping the table.

Whether it be Walker Lane in Rotherham, Kane Close in Coalville, or Southgate Avenue in Crawley, fans up and down the nation have added pride when cheering on the team (except maybe the good people of Welbeck Street in Kilmarnock!). 

Our data showed players’ surnames as part of British road names which end in Road, Avenue, Drive, Close, Crescent, Gardens, Way, Walk, Lane, Street, Hill, Terrace, Court, or Grove.

Most frequent player names to turn up were Rose (913 street names), Walker (308) and manager Southgate (174).

The only names that drew no-score draws were Dier, Rashford, Alli, Loftus-Cheek and Alexander-Arnold.

And who knows? If England hold the World Cup aloft come Sunday 15 July – maybe we’ll see a few more named after them in future?
