England’s women’s and men’s football teams can”dominate world football”, ” says Lionesses boss Phil Neville.
Last summer while the men’s team reached the World Cup semifinals the girls side won the SheBelieves Cup.

“I presume there’s a creation of footballers coming throughout on both sides that could dominate soccer.
“I believe that.
England’s Under-19 and Under-20 men’s teams won their respective World Cups at 2017 while at 2018, the women’s Under-20s ended third – their very best finish at a World Cup.

“It is not merely a manager who’s had a good tournament shouting his mouth off, it’s actual facts,” he added.
“We have a childhood system now on both codes which was successful and accustomed to winning matters. I personally and Gareth Southgate’ve got the ideal job because we’re then getting them in their peak ages .”
‘The future looks fantastic’
The Lionesses beat Japan 3-0 in their game to win the SheBelieves Cup, also beating against Brazil and drawing on world champions the united states at the competition.
Neville believes the victory marks the beginning of several years to get its players, including those that are place to break into the team.
“The future for English women’s football is absolutely amazing,” Neville said. “I’ve got to say, we’ve got a couple of under-20 players which in 2021 or just about then are the top team on the planet.
“Those players at another 12 weeks’ time will get the opportunity to hopefully go into an Olympics or the Euros.
