Head to head

The Lionesses have met Belgium on 13 previous occasions over the years, with England enjoying nine wins, sharing three draws and with Belgium picking up one victory. 

Our first game came back in October 1978, when it ended in a 3-0 win at the Dell, former home of Southampton FC.3

You can see details of our last three games below:-

England 3-0 Belgium, 16 June 2022, Wolverhampton Wanderers

In what was the first of England's summer build-up games to last year's EURO 2022 Finals, Sarina Wiegman's side started out with an impressive win at Molineux. Chloe Kelly's first senior goal was followed by a strike from Rachel Daly before a late own goal from Belgium's Nicky Evrard rounded things off.

Belgium 0-2 England, 20 September 2016, Leuven

The Lionesses secured top spot in their qualifying group for UEFA EURO 2017 with this victory, which came courtesy of second-half goals from Nikita Parris and Karen Carney.

England 1-1 Belgium, 8 April 2016, Rotherham United

An equaliser from Jill Scott rescued a point for Mark Sampson's side in this EURO 2017 qualifier at the New York Stadium. Belgium had taken the lead in the first half through Janice Cayman after an uncharacteristic error from goalkeeper Karen Bardsley. But Scott was the hero to prevent defeat when she got on the end of an Alex Scott cross to level things up.
