In all the intersections between the two national teams, the English have scored as many as 59 goals, conceding just three
England already qualified for the next round are looking for their third victory in this European Championship. After the successes with Austria and Norway, the hosts take on Northern Ireland: at St. Mary’s Stadium in Southampton the kick-off is scheduled for Friday at 21. The girls of Kenny Shiels are arithmetically already fourth in group A : two knockouts so far (4-1 against Norway, 2-0 against Austria).
Ellen White’s group is among those favorites to win the European Championship. Eight consecutive successes lined up in all competitions. Indeed, the last defeat came more than a year ago: on April 14, 2021 against Canada in a friendly. In the qualifying round for the next World Cup England leads their group with 24 points, behind there is Austria at 19 and Northern Ireland at 13. Shiels’ girls fail to win and remain at six consecutive losses. The most recent success came in February against Far Oer: 3-1 in the 90 ‘. For Northern Ireland it is the first participation in an international tournament: the team finished second in its group and overtook Ukraine in the playoffs.
Northern Ireland have very little hope against the English: the national team have lost all 11 previous matches against their opponents. The number of goals scored and conceded by England in these matches is curious: 59 goals scored and only three conceded. The two teams have met three times in the past 18 months. England won a 6-0 friendly in February 2021, before crossing over in two World Cup qualifiers: a Beth Mead hat-trick sentenced Northern Ireland 4-0 at Wembley last October , while in April the Leonesse won 5-0 at Windsor Park.
The group coached by Kenny Shiels is made up largely of non-professional footballers, who for years have also done other jobs besides football: Lauren Wade was director of a funeral home company, Kirsty McGuinness was employed in a DIY store .
