On Saturday 7 May 1881, a team of Scottish women beat a team of English women 3-0 in Edinburgh in front of over 1,000 people. It wasn’t until 89 years later that the England Women’s side played their first official international football match, a 3-2 friendly win over Scotland. England: The Complete Record – the definitive history of the English national football team in all its guises – tells the story of how it took so long to get to that point and everything that has happened since: from their first appearance at a major tournament at Euro 1979 to their third-place finish at the 2015 World Cup. As England enter another World Cup year, this book takes a look at iconic figures from the past – from Sylvia Gore to Hope Powell – and provides the details of every official international they have played in to date, the first time all such results have been recorded in one volume.
