Sarina Wiegman has extended her contract as manager of the England women’s football team until 2027, taking her up to the next World Cup.
The 54-year-old led England to the final of last year’s tournament, where the team lost 1-0 to Spain. Four years earlier she was coach of the Netherlands team that lost 2-0 in the final to the USA.
Wiegman has also won the European championship with both nations when they hosted the competition in 2017, in the Netherlands, and 2022 for England.
The extension of her contract was confirmed by the English Football Association the day after she was named best women’s team coach by world governing body Fifa for the fourth time. Her assistant, Arjan Veurink, will also stay in post until 2027.
“We have unfinished business and I know we are capable of even more, although nothing will come easy,” Wiegman said. “I can’t wait to start the Euro qualifiers, followed by the World Cup.”
