England Women's 2023 fixtures & results: World Cup group, Nations League & Lionesses' match schedule in full

After triumphing at the Euros in 2022, lifting the trophy on home soil at a sold-out Wembley Stadium, England enjoyed another historic year in 2023, even if it did not end in the Women's World Cup glory they would have hoped for.

The Lionesses reached the final of the tournament in Australia and, even though they were beaten there by Spain, it was still a best ever performance in the competition for Sarina Wiegman's team.

Sadly, there was more disappointment around the corner before the year was out, with England failing to reach the finals of the newly-launched UEFA Women's Nations League, thus not securing Great Britain a spot in the Olympic women's football tournament in 2024. There is plenty of work to do in the New Year, then, to recover from such a setback.

What fixtures did England Women have in 2023?

England started 2023 with the Arnold Clark Cup in February, an invitational tournament which the Lionesses started - and won - last year. For this edition, Belgium, Italy and South Korea were the visitors, with England beating all three as they retained their title.

Wiegman's side then added another trophy to the cabinet in April when they won the first ever Women's Finalissima, beating Brazil on penalties at Wembley.

However, just a few days later, the Lionesses saw their unbeaten record under the Dutch coach come to an end when they were deservedly beaten by Australia.

Continuing their preparation for the World Cup, England faced Portugal in their send-off friendly and Canada in a behind-closed-doors match in Australia. Both ended goalless.

The Lionesses enjoyed an upturn in form at the tournament, one which culminated in an incredible run to the final. However, their World Cup dream was ended by Spain, who were 1-0 winners in Sydney.

Sadly, some of those issues came back in the Women's Nations League in the aftermath of the World Cup, resulting in England's second-placed finish in League A Group 1, which was not enough to reach the finals of the competition or help Great Britain qualify for the Olympic women's football tournament.

What fixtures do England Women have in 2024?

In February, it is likely that the Arnold Clark Cup will return, since England didn't reach the Women's Nations League finals, and then there will be the next stage of the Nations League to tackle later in the year.

However, at the moment, no fixtures have been announced or confirmed, with that information to come in due course.
