Under Wiegman, England are unbeaten in 20 matches in all competitions, winning 18 and drawing just two.
That’s a winning percentage of 90 per cent since the former Holland international took charge.
They’ve scored 106 goals under the 52-year-old, an average of 5.3 per game, the best goals per game average among England women’s managers with two or more games.
Of the coaches to have overseen more than 11 games, none have managed more than 2.7 goals per game.

Germany’s goal on Sunday was just the fifth that they have conceded under the Dutch boss
Wiegman is also the manager whose England side reached 100 goals in the shortest time, achieving it in just 18 games.
That’s less than half the amount of matches it took under any previous coach.
Perhaps even more impressive is the work that has been done at the other end of the pitch.
In those 20 games, Germany’s goal on Sunday was just the fifth that they have conceded.
That’s a rate of one goal every five matches under Weigman’s leadership.
They let in just two at Euro 2022 with clean sheets in four of their six outings.
This European Championships also saw Wiegman become the first manager to win the competition with two different sides (Holland in 2017 and England in 2022).
She kept up her perfect record in the competition with 12 wins from 12 matches.
In what is rarely seen at the top level, Wiegman also went through the entire tournament with the same starting XI.
And she was certainly rewarded for it.
