This is a list of England international footballers who were born outside England. For the purposes of international football the football world governing body, FIFA, considers England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to be distinct and individual countries.[1][2] Players born in countries other than England may qualify for the England team through English parents or grandparents, or through residency in England and subsequent naturalisation as British citizens. The Crown dependencies, which for footballing purposes come under the purview of the Football Association of England, have provided two players to the England football team.

Players are listed below by birthplace and played for the full England team unless noted otherwise.
