In recent years there has been a lack of Arsenal players representing England, however, that has not always been the case and you could easily make up a top-quality England side made up solely of Arsenal players.
I have gone with Arsenal players that have represented England at least once and that I have seen play, so, unfortunately, the likes of Cliff Bastin don’t qualify.
Arsenal England XI
Seaman was an easy choice really, he has hardly any competition.
Best left-back in the world in his day, there was strong competition, Lee Dixon and Nigel Winterburn for example but there has never been a left-back as good as Cole that has played for both Arsenal and England.
Another obvious one, he would also be the captain of the team, an absolute legend as a leader.
It was out of Sol Campbell and Keown and my personal preference was for Keown, it is his aggressive nature that swings it for me.
What a brilliant player Anderson was and you have to remember the atmosphere he had to play under back in his day. He has almost no competition for this position.
A world cup winner and played 177 times for Arsenal and was a top-quality midfielder.
Wilshere only played a handful of times for England and yes he was injured a lot but when he was at his best he was simply breathtaking. Such a shame it was so rare.
Only played for England twice but in al honesty when I compare him to the other Arsenal midfielders available he is the best of the bunch. I was tempted to slot in David Rocastle but that was probably me being sentimental.
A clinical goalscorer with a dodgy hairstyle, his stats are quite decent and compare favourably with almost every other English Arsenal striker.
I liked Smith a lot, had a knack for scoring important goals and deserved to be given more opportunities for England.
No way I could leave Wrighty out. He may not have done it regularly with England but then he was hardly ever given a chance for some reason. One of the very best strikers ever to play for Arsenal.
