England secured qualification to Euro 2024 with a 3-1 win over Italy on Tuesday and midfielder Jude Bellingham says this is just the start of their journey.
England's national women's football team, known affectionately as the Lionesses, have been among the best in the world in recent years. They have consistently been in the top 14 according to the FIFA World Rankings, having been formed roughly half a century ago.
Formation and early years
The Hope Powell years
England under Mark Sampson
The Phil Neville era
Sarina Wiegman era and Euro 2022 glory
England hosted the 2022 European Championships and were impressive throughout the tournament under new manager Sarina Wiegman, who only took the role in September 2021.
In the final, after Ella Toone's opener had been cancelled out in normal time by Lina Magull, the 24-year-old Chloe Kelly poked home from close range to spark euphoric scenes at the national stadium as England went on to win a major tournament for the first time.
Wiegman has now won back-to-back European Championships after her 2017 success with the Netherlands.
England's biggest rivals
England's fiercest rivalry is with Germany when it comes to women's football, though it is not quite on the same level as the men's national team.
