It is England. You don't say 'Lions' for the men's team. They are a team representing England, so England it is. The whole media are headlining 'Lionesses' this morning and I find it a bit cringey. We don't call the U-18s 'Cubs' or anything like that. If we're going to differentiate, call it as it is - Men and Women teams. Same with 'the Roses' for the England Women's Rugby Union team.
My opinion anyway, others may disagree.
