The England squad’s wives and girlfriends may not be as famous as they used to be (remember the days of Victoria Beckham, Cheryl Tweedy and Abbey Clancy?) but if the team keeps on winning, it’s likely they’re about to get some serious new-found attention.
Here, we introduce you to the 2018 England team’s nearest and dearest…
Rebekah Vardy (Jamie Vardy)
You might recognise Rebekah Vardy from the likes of Loose Women and I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here! but she’s also known as the wife of Jamie Vardy.
The pair met in 2014 while Rebekah was working as a party planner and married in 2016. The couple have two children together and Jamie is stepfather to two of Rebekah’s children from a previous relationship.
Nicky Pike (Ashley Young)
Childhood sweethearts, Ashley Young and Nicky Pike finally tied the knot in 2014 after calling off their first attempt in 2011 with only 48 hours to go.
Together they share two children, eleven-year-old son Tyler and younger daughter Ellearna.
Ruby Mae (Dele Alli)
23-year-old Ruby Mae’s relationship with Dele Alli first went public when she was seen comforting him after England’s loss to Iceland at Euro 2016.
Since then, they’ve remained steadfast and have been papped on various loved-up holidays in the likes of Mykonos and Ibiza.
Megan Davison (Jordan Pickford)
Another childhood sweetheart pairing, 24-year-old goalie, Jordan Pickford, has known Megan Davidson since his school days. The pair actually started dating when they were 14.
After graduating from Sunderland University last summer, Megan moved to Liverpool with her man after he transferred from Sunderland to Everton.
She has been sporting a large diamond on her ring finger during the World Cup so, although not confirmed, it’s likely the pair are now engaged.
Rebecca Burnett (Jordan Henderson)
Rebecca Burnett is the wife of Jordan Henderson and the two are parents to daughters Elexa and Alba.
Henderson is said to be a total family man.
Emily Jubb (Adam Lallana)
Emily is clearly very understanding about her husband’s football schedule.
Originally due to marry on 14 June 2014, they had to change their wedding date to an earlier date because it was later found to clash with England’s opening World Cup match with Italy.
They had been dating for seven years before getting hitched and now have two children, Arthur Michael and Albie George.
Katie Goodland (Harry Kane)
Fitness instructor and Sports Science graduate Katie Goodland has been dating England captain, Harry Kane, for the last five years and the pair are now engaged.
Already parents to Ivy, who was born in 2017, 23-year-old Goodland isn’t currently in Russia because she’s too pregnant with their second child to fly.
We bet she’s cheering Kane on at home.
Paige Milian (Raheem Sterling)
Paige Milian and Raheem Sterling first met at the age of 12 at a youth club but got together later.
The pair, each 23, share one son, Thiago, and are engaged to be married.
Paige is known as a social media star (she has a following of 40K) and works as one of the PrettyLittleThing official influencers.
Fern Hawkins (Harry Maguire)
Sheffield natives, Fern Hawkins and Harry Maguire have been together for seven years after meeting in 2011.
Not shy of expressing their devotion to one another, when Hawkins graduated from university in 2017, Maguire took to Instagram and captioned a photo of her: “Super proud of my clever girl graduating in Physiotherapy today.”
The couple announced their engagement in June.
Annabel Peyton (Jack Butland)
Goalkeeper Jack Butland started dating airhostess Annabel Peyton in 2016 after he was dumped by his childhood sweetheart, Steph Parsons, who he had been with for nine years.
Luckily, it all worked out. Butland proposed to Peyton in May while on an Italian getaway and she said yes.
Gemma Acton (Gary Cahill)
Gemma Acton is one of the WAGs that steers clear of social media so her relationship with Gary Cahill is kept largely private.
What we do know is the pair tied the knot in 2013 and are parents to their two children, Freya and Frank.

Kaya Hall (Phil Jones)
After announcing their engagement in 2016, the pair wed in June 2017 and it was attended by the likes of Wayne Rooney.
The couple have been together since 2011 and have one child.
Annie Kilner (Kyle Walker)
Both hailing from Sheffield, 27-year-old model Annie Kilner and 28-year-old Kyle Walker have been an item for nine years.
They have three sons together; Roman, six, Riaan, two and Reign nine months.
