England to defend title
 Women's Football England International News - 18 Jan 2020
 
England will participate in their fifth successive SheBelieves Cup in hope of retaining the prestigious trophy.
 
They come up against tough opposition in 2019 FIFA World Cup champions United States, last year's competitors Japan and SheBelieves debutant Spain.
 
England were crowned champions in last year's competition after opening the tournament with a 2-1 victory over Brazil. The Lionesses went on to draw 2-2 with USA before culminating with a 3-0 triumph over Japan to finish unbeaten and lift the trophy for the first time.
 
Phil Neville's squad will start the competition against hosts USA at the Exploria Stadium in Orlando before taking on Japan, England's group stage opponents at last summer's FIFA Women's World Cup at the Red Bull Arena, New Jersey. The team will then travel to Frisco, Texas to play their final match against competition newcomers Spain, currently ranked 13th in the world.
 
The Lionesses' fixture schedule at the 2020 SheBelieves Cup is:
 
Thursday 5 March (KO 7pm ET): USA v England - Exploria Stadium, Orlando
Sunday 8 March (KO 2.15pm ET): Japan v England - Red Bull Arena, Harrison
Wednesday 11 March (KO 4.15pm CT): England v Spain - Toyota Stadium, Frisco
 
England Head Coach Phil Neville said: "We are excited to take part in our fifth consecutive She Believes Cup as it is always such an exceptional competition hosting some of the best teams in the world.
 
"It is a tournament we always look forward to in the fixture calendar, the high tempo and intensity of the competition provides a great test for our squad with matches taking place every few days, as well as offering our players the opportunity to play in front of large crowds in excellent stadiums.
 
"We were delighted to lift the trophy for the first-time last year, and it is an achievement we hope to replicate this time around."
 
Japan will join Team GB at this summer's Women's Olympic Football Tournament 2020 in Tokyo. The Lionesses qualified Team GB for the Finals after finishing in the top three European teams at last year's World Cup. USA are still to qualify for the tournament. They will compete in the 2020 CONCACAF Women's Olympic Qualifying Championship at the end of this month, whilst Spain narrowly missed out after their World Cup run ended at the Round of 16 last summer.
