The English girls’ football team at the Danone Nations Cup

The English girls’ football team took part in the Danone Nations Cup for the first time in 2018. For two consecutive years they won the Fairplay trophy in 2018 and 2019. Just like the English boys’ team, the young English girls intend to progress in the competition, they are already preparing for the next meetings.

The English and football

The first women to play football in England dates to the 19th century.  Poorly viewed at this time, women’s football was banned by the English federation in 1920. Despite this, English women unofficially took part in several national and international tournaments. The English federation then reversed their decision and authorised the playing of women’s football in 1969. It wasn’t until 1991 that the first English women’s football championship emerged. Many famous clubs now make up the FA Women’s Super League, including Arsenal, Doncaster Rovers Belles and Chelsea.
