    Excellent question!

    I'm a North American speaker and here's what the two sound like to me:

    Englishman <man> as in money.
    Englishmen <men> as in many or mint

    All the best.

    All the best.

    MAN is being pronunciated as [maen].
    On the other side, MEN is being pronunciated as [men].
