Has the England women’s national football team ever won the Euros or the World Cup? The Lionesses prepare to host Euro 2022

The Women’s Euro is fast approaching and record crowds are expected as England host the competition.

Sarina Wiegman’s side are one of the favorites heading into the tournament, given the quality they possess and their record at the Euros.


Wiegman already knows how to win the Women’s Euro

However, despite their growing reputation in the country, the Lionesses have yet to win a major international tournament.

But this year, backed by a home crowd, could prove to be the return of summer football for the England women’s team.

England Women’s Euro record

The Lionesses have participated in the Euro eight times and reached the final twice, but did not win the competition.

England came close to winning the first-ever Euros in 1984 but were beaten in a home-and-away final by Sweden on penalties.

Then in 1987, the Lionesses qualified for the semi-finals, but they were again stopped by Sweden.

After that, England endured a barren spell and did not qualify for the next tournament until 1995, where they again reached the semi-finals, but a 6-2 aggregate loss to Germany ended. put an end to his hopes.

In the 2001 edition, the Lionesses finished last in their group, which they repeated in 2005.

But they bounced back from those disappointments to reach the final in 2009, where Germany proved too strong and won 6-2.

2013 also proved to be a disappointment before reaching the semi-finals of the 2017 competition.

So, can this finally be the year?

England Women’s World Cup record

The Lionesses have participated in five FIFA Women’s World Cups and although they have never won the competition, they have always reached at least the quarter-finals.

England first qualified for the World Cup in 1995 and won their first two games before losing to Nigeria and then Germany in the quarter-finals.

But after that first success, the Lionesses had to wait 12 years until their next appearance in FIFA’s premier women’s competition.

The 2007 tournament was held in China and England were drawn in the same group as Germany. They managed to navigate the group stage but were then beaten 3-0 by the United States.

Then in 2011, England were knocked out in the Round of 16 by France on penalties.

However, the last two competitions have been much better for England and they have reached the semi-finals each time.

In 2015, the Lionesses were denied a place in the final by a last-minute own goal to put Japan through.

But the progression has been clear since England, and in 2019 they beat Japan in the group stage and won every game until they narrowly lost to the United States.
