Phil Neville

England Women, 2018-Present

Phil Neville took charge of the England Women’s side in January 2018. Two months later, he led them into his first tournament as the Lionesses head coach at the 2018 SheBelieves Cup, where they were to face France, the United States and Germany.

In his first game, against France – a team England’s women had previously beaten just once in 44 years – Neville led the team to a 4-1 victory. Goals from Toni Duggan, Jill Scott, Jodie Taylor and Fran Kirby secured an impressive start to his reign.

Now, 15 months on, the former Manchester United and Everton player leads the Lionesses into the 2019 World Cup – his first major tournament as a manager. In this exclusive video, Neville talks through the approach he took to that first game in charge, and explains how he has since adapted England’s style of play to give them the best chance of succeeding in France this summer.
