Bukayo Saka, Raheem Sterling and Marcus Rashford were part of England's squad at the 2022 World Cup

Arsenal's Bukayo Saka, Chelsea's Raheem Sterling and Manchester United's Marcus Rashford have been named on a list of the most influential black people in British football.

The annual Football Black List recognises the efforts of black figures working in various areas of the game.

Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira and Burnley boss Vincent Kompany are included in the coaching category.

Pundit and ex-England player Lianne Sanderson is also on this year's list.

The Football Black List, first published in 2008, highlights black industry professionals who are positive influencers.

The names in the eight categories are decided by a panel of experts with representatives from the Premier League, Professional Footballers' Association, League Managers' Association, EFL and anti-racism group Kick It Out.
