Since World War II, England have won the Victory Shield outright thirty-four times and have been joint winners with Scotland eight times, with Wales twice and with both Scotland and Wales twice.[2]

In 2005, the team made their debut in the annual Montaigu Tournament, held in Montaigu, France.[3] England have won the competition twice, in 2008 and 2011. On both occasions, they met the hosts France in the final, beating them in a penalty shoot-out after a 0–0 draw.[4][5]
