BLOEMFONTEIN: After they were thrashed 4-1 by arch enemies Germany in the World Cup last 16 in Bloemfontein on Saturday, here are some of England's heaviest international defeats:
Scotland 7 England 2, March 1878
England's first seven official international matches were all played against their old rivals from north of the border. They emerged with one win, two draws and four defeats, the heaviest of which was a crushing 7-2 loss at Hampden Park in Glasgow that stood as England's heaviest defeat for 76 years.
Hungary 7 England 1, May 1954
England had been humiliated by Hungary the year before, losing 6-3 at Wembley in what was their first defeat to overseas opposition on home soil.
England travelled to Budapest gunning for revenge but were outclassed once again, with Ferenc Puskas and Sandor Kocsis both scoring twice for the Magnificent Magyars.
Brazil 5 England 1, May 1964
Two years before their World Cup triumph, England were torn apart in a Rio de Janeiro friendly, with Pele on target for the hosts and Jimmy Greaves netting a consolation for the visitors.
Wales 4 England 1, May 1980
A high point in Welsh football history but a bleak day for England.
Manchester United winger Mickey Thomas was the tormentor in chief for Wales as they recorded their biggest ever victory over their neighbours in a Home Championship game in Wrexham.
Denmark 4 England 1, August 2005
England were looking for a gentle run-out in Copenhagen prior to a crucial World Cup qualifier against Wales, but fell behind to a Dennis Rommedahl goal shortly after half-time and never recovered.
Germany 4 England 1, June 2010
An England team containing Wayne Rooney, Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard were hoping to end 44 years of World Cup disappointment but were torn apart in Bloemfontein by a Germany side inspired by the pace and skill of Mesut Ozil and the dead-eyed finishing of Thomas Mueller.
