Sven kicks off Merlin's England 2002 Official World Cup Sticker Collection with his luke-warm introduction, stating England are “capable of making a positive impression on the finals”. Hardly a confident statement! None the less England went on to reach the quarter finals, where we lost 2-1 to the eventual tournament winners Brazil.
Sven gets an introduction, with stickers of the England badge and kits, then the following pages begin to introduce the England squad. David Platt then introduces the England Under 21’s team, with 12 half stickers. A few pages follow with text and football stickers detailing ‘The Road to Japan/Korea’, with qualifications results and final standings, and a special double-spread remembering the 5-1 victory over Germany. 15 pages then go in to detail on each of the squad members, some getting a page to themselves, and others sharing a page. ‘The Lego Superstar Masterclass’ highlight 5 of the most talented players from around the globe and then the venues page shows the stadiums and maps before the album moves on to the groups
Each country is allocated their own page, with the players split into half-stickers. Also included on the country pages are a star player with a brief summary box, stats on the country and historic performances.
