England women's manager Phil Neville is to discuss his future ​with the FA next week following the Lionesses' limp SheBelieves Cup performance.


Neville's side went into the competition as defending champions but registered just one win and one goal in three games against the USA, Japan and Spain.


​1-0 defeat to​ Spain, a side ranked seven places below England in the FIFA rankings, means it's now three wins in 11 for the Lionesses.

According to the ​Daily Mail, Neville is considering his future and will have a meeting with high-ranking FA officials next week - including chief executive Mark Bullingham - to assess England's SheBelieves Cup campaign. His future will be resolved following the meeting.


Neville guided England to the World Cup semi finals in France just eight months ago, but results and performances since their last-four heartache have been below par, leading to huge pressure on the Lionesses boss.

However, the squad has come under scrutiny like never before since his high profile appointment, and with that has come intense criticism. Midfielder Keira Walsh considered her future in the game after the abuse she received on social media during the World Cup. 


The best interests of his players and their development are Neville's priority and it is understood that, while he wants to remain in the position, he does not want the pressure his players are currently under to suffocate them.


The 43-year-old has been in the hot seat for just over two years and has 15 months remaining on the deal he signed when he was first appointed in 2018.

The initial appointment attracted considerable criticism, with Neville never having had a full time managerial position before and never having worked in the ​women's game


However, following former manager Mark Sampson's sacking, many more experienced candidates had no interest in the job.


The FA have previously shown faith in Neville when he has been under pressure, appointing him as GB coach for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and allowing him to appoint previous USA fitness coach Dawn Scott, demonstrating the confidence they have in his long term vision.
