England are among 16 teams looking to win Women's Euro 2022 as they play host to the continent's elite.

As one of the favourites to win the tournament, the Lionesses are bidding to land their first major international trophy.

And LiveScore have picked out some key facts and stats to get you in the know for the summer showpiece.

Reigning champions

The Netherlands are the reigning champions having beaten Denmark 4-2 in the 2017 final on home soil.

Talismanic striker Vivianne Miedema netted twice in that game and the Women's Super League all-time leading goalscorer will be one to watch again this summer.

Their best result prior to that victory was a 2009 semi-final in where they conceded a late goal to lose 2-1 to England in extra-time.

German glory

Germany are the dominant force in European women's football having won an incredible eight of 12 European Championships.

Their six-tournament winning streak was broken by the Netherlands in the last edition and Martina Voss-Tecklenburg's side will be out to reclaim their crown.

Norway are the only other side to win more than one title after their triumphs in 1987 and 1993, while Sweden and the Dutch have one trophy apiece.

Goals galore

The Lionesses hold the record for the biggest winning margin after they thumped Scotland 6-0 in 2017.

Jodie Taylor bagged a hat-trick in that clash on her way to being named the tournament's top scorer with five goals.

Her efforts five years ago saw her finish one strike shy of Germany star Inka Grings' record haul of six in 2009.

The Germans also hold the team record for most goals after hitting 21 in total over the course of their 2009 triumph — one of three times they have won every game en route to lifting the trophy.

Did you know?

Silvia Neid has been involved in all eight Germany victories — as a player in 1989, 1991 and 1995, assistant coach in 1997, 2001 and 2005 and head coach in 2009 and 2013. 

But the serial winner will not be part of proceedings this time around after stepping down in 2016.

In total, 12 players have won both the Women's Champions League and Euros in the same year.

They are: Britta Carlson, Ariana Hingst, Anja Mittag, Conny Pohlers, Petra Wimbersky (Turbine Potsdam and Germany in 2005), Fatmire Alushi, Linda Bresonik, Inka Grings, Annike Krahn, Simone Laudehr (Duisburg and Germany in 2009), Lena Goessling, Nadine Kessler (Wolfsburg and Germany in 2013).
