The 2019 Women’s World Cup is currently being held in France with the senior national English women’s team representing England in the competition. 24 teams qualified for the tournament which is held every four years, to determine who will be crowned the world’s women’s football champions. The English women’s football team, which is coached by former Manchester United legend Philip John Neville, has performed exceptionally well having beaten Scotland, Argentina, and Japan in the group stage.
In the round 16 stage, the team comfortably saw off a resilient Cameroonian side to book a place in the quarter-finals, where they play Norway. With their fantastic display during this years competition, the Lionesses are hoping to lift the first World Cup trophy for the country, which the men’s team last won in 1966.
The UEFA Champions League
With Liverpool becoming the first English team to lift the Champions League trophy for a record six times in the 2018-19 season, other English clubs have set their eyes on the prize, and it leaves to be seen if this trophy will remain in England during the coming season. With teams such as Manchester City and Manchester United revamping their squads in readiness for the new season, it can be argued that the English sides will put up a spirited fight against other top European teams in the upcoming Champions League competition.
The 2019 Rugby World Cup
