The news we have all be waiting for was finally announced yesterday. After the decision last week by the FA Women’s Super League & Women’s Championship Board to terminate the 2019/20 season, the FA Board has agreed to decide both leagues on a basic points-per-game basis, with promotion and relegation determined on sporting merit.
This time last year, all the hype was building around England ahead of the 2019 World Cup. As one of the favourites for the tournament, Phil Neville was riding on a crest of a wave after under 18 months in the job.
So, here we are, back stateside for the 5th edition of the SheBelieves Cup and after what seems like several years since we last saw the Lionesses in action. Orlando, Harrison and Frisco will set the stage for this 2020 tournament that sees Spain join last year’s competitors, England, Japan and of course the USA.
500 days to go! Euro 2021 is starting to become a very real and exciting prospect. Sitting in Wembley earlier this week, listening to the plans for the tournament, it was hard not to be enthusiastic about next summer’s competition.
