The England national football team represents England in international football and
is controlled by The Football Association, the governing body for football in England.
[1][2]

England are one of the two oldest national teams in football; alongside Scotland,
whom they played in the world's first international football match in 1872. England's
home ground is Wembley Stadium, London, and the current caretaker manager is
Gareth Southgate. Although part of the United Kingdom, England has always had a
representative side that plays in major professional tournaments, though not in the
Olympic Games, as the IOC has always recognised United Kingdom representative
sides.

England contest the FIFA World Cup and UEFA European Championship, which
alternate biennially. In contesting for the World Cup seventeen times over the past

sixty four years, England won the 1966 World Cup, when they hosted the finals, and
achieved a semi final appearance in 1990. England have never won the UEFA
European Football Championship after fifteen attempts over fifty-six years their
best performances were semi final appearances at the 1968 and 1996
Championships, the latter of which they hosted.
