Former Manchester United player Phil Neville has on Tuesday been appointed as head coach of the England female senior team.
Neville will take over from interim coach Mo Marley who succeeded Mark Sampson.
“I am honoured to be given the chance to lead England,” Neville told the FA’s official website.
“With the new coaching team we are putting in place, we can help the players build on their great progress in recent years. This squad is on the verge of something special and I believe I can lead them to the next level.
“I can’t wait to get out on the training pitch and down to work with an elite group of players at the top of their game. I am also passionate about working within the wider set-up at St. George’s Park, with influential people such as Mo Marley and Casey Stoney, and with the support of Baroness Sue Campbell and the wider women’s game.
“There is a commitment to excellence that has paid dividends in recent years and I know we can continue the great growth of women’s football inspired by the Lionesses. There is no greater honour than representing your country and it will be a privilege to do it again.”
