August 12, 2022
The England women's national football team is the national team that represents England in international women's football. The England national team was previously under the authority of the British Women's Football Association (WFA), but since 1993 it has been directly governed by the English Football Association (FA). As a member of FIFA, the England women's national team participates in various international women's soccer tournaments such as, the FIFA World Cup, the UEFA European Championship, and several friendly tournaments. The England women's national team played its first international match in November 1972 against Scotland. Although the majority of its squad plays for the sovereign nation, the united kingdom of Great Britain, England is permitted by FIFA to represent its own country in all competitions, except for the Olympic tournament.
