  ENGLAND  
     
     
 

The England national football team represents England in international football and is controlled by The Football Association (FA), the governing body for football in England. England alongside Scotland are the oldest national football teams in the world. They played the first ever official international match on 30 November 1872. The match took place at Hamilton Crescent in Partick, Scotland, and finished in a 0–0 draw.

The FA, the oldest football association in the world, was founded in 1863, became a member of FIFA in 1905, and a member of UEFA in 1954. The English Football League was established in 1888. At the end of the season 1888-1889, Preston North End was crowned champions after completing their fixtures unbeaten. The Football League First Division ran from 1892-1992. The first champion of the professional era was Sunderland and the runner-up was Preston North End. The 1992–93 FA Premier League was the first season of the Premier League, the top division of English football. Manchester United  was crowned champions, and the runner-up was Aston Villa. Since the first English Football League was established in 1888, England's top clubs have been Manchester United with 20 championships, Liverpool with 20, and Arsenal with 13.

England is one of the most important teams in the world. The English have won one World Cup title in 1966.
