Welcome to englandstats

  • We are striving to make sure that all data on Englandstats is derived from verified contemporary sources. We have three aims for our sourcing. Firstly, that we can verify our data alongside at least one independent source from any means. Secondly, to augment that with one contemporary source per match and lastly, to have, at least, two contemporary sources per match. Our research currently stands at:
    100.04% of 2,278 match and player pages are verified with one source.
    64.37% of 1016 matches are verified with at least one contemporary source and 37.89% are verified with two or more contemporary sources.
    We currently have 5,424 sources.

Euro 2020

  • One year late but very much welcome

  • Warm up friendlies done and dusted, the final squad position filled, and the Three Lions board the plane bus for Wembley for Sunday's Euro 2020 fixture against Croatia. With a potential six out of seven games at Wembley, the bookies have England as second favourites but second round matches against France, Germany or Portugal could be in wait and of course, firstly, they will have to negotiate a reasonable group with World Cup runners-up Croatia, old rivals Scotland and Czech Republic who beat England 2-1 in Prague in October 2019 - so the due amount of optimism and pessimism should be given - as always. The big positive is that an international tournament is going ahead, albeit a year late, and there will be fans in the stadium. I feel sorry for the chap who has lost his job pressing the crowd noise button but if I never hear another simulated crowd again in my life, I can live with that.
    Good luck England. It's coming home.

Dublin venue flip boosts England's chances

  • England could potentially play six of seven games at Wembley

  • Following the recent news that Dublin will not be ready to host it's Euro 2020/1 games without fans, it is likely that its current intended three group stage and last-16 ties will be moved to new venues. The last-16 tie is currently earmarked to move to Wembley which hosts the winner of Group D - which includes England, Croatia, Czech Republic and Scotland. If this switch is confirmed England have a potential route to the final which would include six games at Wembley with only a quarterfinal elsewhere - Rome.

June Friendlies Announced

  • Home games against Austria and Romania

  • The FA have announced two friendlies in early June as England's warm-up for the delayed Euro 2020. Whilst the venues have not been confirmed yet, the Three Lions will face Austria on 2nd June and Romania 4 days later. Austria qualified for the finals as group G runner-up behind Poland whilst Romania missed out after finishing fourth in group F. Both will be excellent foils as England prepare to face Czech Republic, Croatia and Scotland.
    Romania are one of only five teams that have a better head-to-head record over England and their meeting in June will be the first for 21 years since Romania knocked England out of Euro 2000 with a late Ganea penalty. Phil Neville look away now!

World Cup 2022 Qualifying

  • Old friends meet again

  • Nothing new in today's World Cup draw as England were confirmed in Group I with Poland, Hungary, Albania, Andorra and San Marino, all of whom England have met before at this stage. Poland are the oldest of frenemies at the 7th time of asking. For both Albania and San Marino it will be the third time, whilst Hungary & Andorra the second. That's 24 previous World Cup qualifying meetings for England with this group. England should be well versed and well scouted.
    First matches are due to start in March 2021.
