* match ended as a draw
England participated in the first ever Beach Soccer World Cup in 1995, finishing third, but did not participate in any of the competitions between 1995 and 2001. In 2001 England began competing in the EBSL which doubled as a qualifying competition for the following year's World Cup until 2008 but England did not perform well enough during these years to qualify for the finals. In 2008, a separate qualifying competition was introduced, but England have still failed to progress to the World Cup finals.
