Phil Neville will be stepping down as England Women’s manager next summer

The former Manchester United and Everton defender Neville led the Lionesses to the semi-final of the World Cup in 2019 but since then they have lost seven of their last 11 games and failed to retain the SheBelieves Cup.

The 43-year-old faced questions over his future following the failure at that tournament earlier this year.

The England boss said: “That is something I’ve got to take responsibility for. I’ve got to look at how we improve the team’s performances. I’ve got 100 per cent confidence in my own ability. 100 per cent. I know I trust the players and they trust me. Ultimately results have to improve and I’ve been in football long enough to say that and I’ve got to make sure over the next two or three weeks we take stock, reset and make the right decisions.”
