Just picked this off of the Sunday Telegraph sports page:

The English leagues are providing the World Cup with more players than any other country in the world. In total, 101 English-based players have travalled to the tournament, 85 of whom play in the Premiership. Italy are England's closest rivals, providing 76 players, Germany have 59, Spain 58 and France 56.

Great question for those rainy nights when there is feck all else to do or the wife is out or your on short rations :eek:
