Although womens’ soccer is big in the USA, it hasn’t taken off in quite the same way in the UK – but with the men’s team performing poorly and the Lionesses never doing better, that might be about to change.
Hungary vs England, 2005
In a match that’s sure to go down in the history books, the England ladies achieved their biggest ever victory in 2005. Faced by the Hungarians, they walked away from this match having scored a whopping 13 goals, and conceded none. It’s impressive by anyone’s standards!
Germany vs England, 2015
Ten years later the England women’s’ team went on to win third place in the World Cup, hosted by the Canadians. It was in the play-off for third place that they won one of their hardest fought matches against Germany, which was finally decided by a penalty in extra time after level pegging on 0-0 for the whole match.
England vs Austria, 2017
One of their most recent matches, England steamed to a decisive victory over Austria in their final match before the Euro 2017 tournament; a good omen for the future surely.
