Barry’s header against Sweden in November 2011 was England’s 2,000th goal in international football.


Seasons in the elite for Barry.


Barry won two Everton player-of-the-season awards in the 2015-16 campaign, when he was voted as the top performer by both his team-mates and the club’s fans.


Barry’s tally of Premier League yellow cards is also an all-time record, with Wayne Rooney the only other player to have racked up 100. Barry has also been sent off six times.
