England fans are calling for Sarina Wiegman to replace Gareth Southgate following the Lionesses' spectacular Euro 2022 triumph.

Wiegman, 52, took charge of the England women's team in September 2021 and has swiftly guided the team to a major trophy.

The Lionesses beat Germany 2-1 after extra-time to earn a famous win at Wembley Stadium on Sunday.

She's led England to their most recent international triumph, ending the country's 56-year wait for a major trophy.

And plenty of England fans believe the Dutchwoman could do a job in the men's international arena.

They've taken to Twitter to back Wiegman to replace Southgate after an incredible Euro 2022 campaign.

It comes after Wiegman's transformation of the women's team since taking charge last year.

She masterminded the Lionesses' Euro 2022 achievement, having instilled great faith and loyalty in the players.

A calculated manager who never panics, with her substitutions proving crucial throughout the tournament.

Wiegman only took charge of the England women's team 10 months ago, but there has been a huge transformation.

As for Southgate, he's been in charge of the England men's team since September 2016 and has led The Three Lions to a World Cup semi final and to the final of Euro 2020.

But he's been unable to steer his side to any major international honours.

He has another chance to bag a trophy when he oversees England's 2022 World Cup campaign in Qatar later this year.

Could Wiegman replace Southgate if he fails to deliver the World Cup? Let us know what you think.
