THEY are the popular sporting icons who hold the hopes of the nation in their hands – along with a hefty paycheck.
Tonight, the Three Lions are hoping to beat North Macedonia in their final EURO qualifier after beating Malta 4-0 on Friday.
Whilst England’s international footballers undoubtedly cut a fine figure, not all of them are as wealthy as you might think.
Last month it was announced that captain Harry Kane had a whopping net worth of £51million, up from £42million in 2022 The Sunday Times rich list.
The Tottenham striker – England’s all-time top scorer – earns around £200,000 a week at his club, plus money from lucrative endorsement deals.
But Harry isn’t the highest-net-worth England player as our list of riches reveals…
Marcus Rashford – £65m
Manchester United star Marcus Rashford has gone beyond football after campaigning to end child starvation and racism.
His charitable work has also made him a highly sought-after figure for large corporations, which has contributed to his reported net worth of £65million.
Marcus, who at 22 became the youngest soccer player to earn an MBE title, has signed deals with McDonald’s, EA Sports and Nike.
It adds £200,000 to his weekly wages at the Red Devils, bringing the total salary to £10.4m a year, making him the club’s seventh-highest paid star.
Raheem Sterling – £61million
Chelsea star Raheem Sterling comes second in our rich list with a reported net worth of £61million.
He was also ranked 23rd in the list of the 35 richest people under the age of 35 on the Sunday Times Rich List.
Raheem is paid a whopping £325,000 a week from Chelsea FC and earns even more from sponsorship deals including one with New Balance.
The 28-year-old also co-owns a Stockport-based real estate company with his fiancée, Paige Milian.
Harry Kane – £51million
As well as his £10.4million annual salary, Kane, 29, makes a fortune from endorsement deals, most notably with Nike.
Away from the beautiful game, the Spurs star has a property portfolio worth £13million, including rental properties.
He’s currently renting out a house for £800,000 a year and has also invested in a low-calorie donut start-up.
His earnings could be boosted significantly if speculation that Harry could leave Tottenham during this summer’s transfer window is correct.
It is reported that a move to Bayern Munich or Manchester United could be considered with big money at stake.
Last year Manchester City made a £135m bid for the star.
Jordan Pickford – £36million
Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford has a net worth of £36million – and much of that comes from a lucrative deal with his Premier League club.
In September 2018 he signed a six-year deal with The Toffees, which pays him £5million a year.
And as England’s first-choice goalkeeper, he has made a fortune from sponsorship deals including with Puma and Nike.
On top of his earnings, Jordan, 29, and his wife Megan share a £2.1million villa in Knutsford, Cheshire – an area popular with footballers like John Stones and Jordan Henderson.
Luke Shaw – £32million
Man Utd star Luke Shaw is reportedly worth £32million and caused quite a stir when he joined the club from Southampton in 2014.

He has twice been named PFA Premier League Team of the Year and has also been named Player of the Year, making him an attractive prospect as a brand ambassador.
Luke, now 27, earns £150k-a-week at Man Utd – £7.8million a year – excluding bonuses.
He sold his Cheshire mansion for £2.6million in 2019 and now lives in a stunning London flat with his girlfriend Anouska Santos and their son Reign.
Kyle Walker – £27million

Jordan Henderson – £23million
Liverpool FC star Jordan Henderson, 33, reportedly earns £23million a year which mostly comes from his salary as a footballer.
He has been paid £140,000 a week or £7.3m a year since signing a new contract with the club in 2018.
It followed that Jordan originally signed for Liverpool in 2010 for an undisclosed fee estimated at around £18million.
At the time, he was said to be making £65,000 a week, or £3.3million a year.
Jordan is also expected to earn at least £1million a year off the pitch through sponsorship deals, including deals with sports drink makers MaxiNutrition and Nivea.
Last year Jordan provided a star with plans to expand his multimillion pound mansion to fit in a trophy corridor and do that Seven-bed house in a “hotel complex”.
Mason Mount – £20m
Chelsea star Mason Mount is currently in a bitter transfer window battle – after Man Utd were told they would have to pay £70m plus surcharges to sign him.
In May it was claimed he was currently “significantly unpaid” as his weekly earnings were reportedly less than £100,000 – around £5.2million a year.
Mason, 24, who is reportedly worth £20million, supplements his income through sponsorship deals, including with Nike, and promoting companies through his social media. He has 5.7 million Instagram followers.
Jack Grealish – £20million
Man City star Jack Grealish became football’s most expensive player when he left Aston Villa for a transfer fee of £100million and £300,000 a week – or £15.6million a year.
It is estimated that the 27-year-old, who is reportedly worth £20million, will earn a staggering £100million before the age of 30 after becoming the target of big fashion brands and sports companies.
He has already signed big deals including with Puma for a reported £10m, Gucci for a reported £10m and BooHooMan for a reported £1m.
Birmingham-born Jack, whose earnings are expected to increase in the years to come, has been jokingly nicknamed “the million dollar man” by friends for his earning potential.
Harry Maguire – £20million
Man Utd defender Harry Maguire, 30, who is reportedly worth £20m, earns his main earnings from his £189,904-week wages, which translates to £9,875k a year.

Harry, who is married to Fern Hawkins, also has a sizeable net worth.
In January he bought a mansion in Cheshire for £4million and is trying to sell another in the same area for £1.8million.
